Baldwin freshman bowling team off to strong start

BALDWIN — Josh Richards has been getting the job done in his freshman season for Baldwin’s boys bowling team.

As a result, the Panthers are having plenty of success on the bowling lanes.

Saturday at the Baldwin Bowling Center, “we had real good performances from Josh Richards, a freshman, with games of 171 and 121,” said Baldwin coach Nick Miller. “He’s just a first-year bowler.”

Baldwin scored a 22-8 victory over MCE.

“I’m doing a lot better than I started,” Richards said, noting that the 171 was his best of the season. “Coach Nick talks a lot about release and our form, just some of the fundamentals which helps our game a lot.”

Roger is hoping to go for a 200 game and help his team do well in the post season later this season.

Veteran bowler C.J. Sidock, a senior, had games of 176 and 232. Patrick Rogers, a sophomore, had a pair of 170s.

“Cameron Wroblewski is a senior this year, a first-year bowling, shot a 150 and a 170,” Miller said. “I’m pleasantly surprised with the improvement on the boys team.”

Baldwin will bowl against Mason County Central on Saturday at Country Lanes in Scottville.

Miller is anticipating having four more girls to sign up for the program, giving him a full girls team.

Gracie Lemieux has been leading the way for the Baldwin girls.
