The Seymour Eagles boys’ bowling team is off to a great start this season after defeating the William Blount Governors at the Pigeon Forge Community Center Bowling Alley by a score of 21 to 6. The total pin fall count was 3,009 to 2,591 in favor of Seymour.
The Eagles were led by sophomore Quinton Aubuchon with the game high score of 216 followed by a 154 and a 191 for a series pin fall of 561.
Aubuchon was followed closely by teammate, another sophomore Dylan McClure with scores of 199, 167 and 180 for a series pin fall of 546.
Other top scores were Cory Lee with a 210, Nick Hicks with a 200 and Danny Coleman with a 178.
William Blount’s top score was Tommy Daniele with a 210 in the second game.
“The boys did well. I was excited that they bowled over 3,000 pins again,” Seymour Bowling Coach Charles Ogle said. “We have several younger bowlers and it is encouraging that they have bowled over 3,000 twice this early in the season. I hope we can keep improving.”
Ogle added how his young players are leading the team.
“Quinton Aubuchon, a sophomore had our high series score of 561 and a high game of 216,” he said. “Dylan McClure had a 199 and Cory Lee had a 210 and Nick Hicks a senior, but a 1st year player had a 200.”
On the girls’ side, the outcome wasn’t as good as the Lady Eagles lost 22 to 5. Total pin fall was 2,344 to 1,963 in favor of the Lady Govs.
The Lady Eagles were led by freshman Megan Berbohm with a 138 and followed with an opening game 134 and closed with a 111 for a series total of 383.
Berbohm was closely followed by Michelle Reyna, another freshman, with scores of 134, 134 and 105.
The high series score for the Lady Eagles was a 156 by Caitlin Bixler while the high score for the Lady Govs was a 171 by Sarah Patty and Britney Fields.
“We are proud of our girls even though they are struggling,” said Ogle. “The girls showed promise against Sevier County.
“If they could have bowled against William Blount the way they did last week against Sevier County this would have been a close contest.”
Things don’t get any easier as the Lady Eagles bowl next against Heritage on Nov. 16. The Heritage girls have the best team in the district and region.
The girls and the boys both bowl that day against Heritage at Crest Lanes on Alcoa Highway.
