A golden effort
Oswego girls' bowling team wins Andrew Tournament

by Christine Bolin Dascher


The Oswego and Oswego East girls' bowling teams traveled to Town and Country Lanes in Joliet for Plainfield South's 30-team Holiday Invite last Thursday, and both teams ended up in the Gold Division.

Oswego placed fourth overall in front of Oswego East's sixth place finish. Waubonsie Valley won, followed by Freeport and Andrew.

Minooka was fifth, Joliet West seventh, Morris eighth and Plainfield South ended up in ninth place.

The Panthers' and Wolves' morning efforts placed them both in the Gold Division for the afternoon, where all team scores were erased and 10 baker games were bowled with total afternoon pinfall determining the team champion.

Leading the way for Oswego was sophomore Brittany Breedlove, whose 199 average was also good for a 17th place individual medal (the top 20 received a medal). She finished with a 598.

Not far behind Breedlove were seniors Cheyanne Valdez (198 average/593) and Jessica Mendez (192 average/577). Senior Trashaunna Manning ended up with a 549.

For Oswego East, junior Jordan Tiritilli led the way with her 598. That was followed by sophomore Abby Ragsdale (576), senior Kailey Kopacz (571) and junior Averee Bottcher (552). Ragsdale recently rolled a perfect 300 game at DeKalb's Tournament on Dec. 21.

Last Friday, Oswego was at Andrew's Bowling Bash. The Panthers won the 13-team tournament with a 5,749. Lake Park was second with 5,576, followed by Resurrection (5,285), Plainfield North (4,974) and Andrew (4,931).

The Panthers put up solid morning totals of 954, 957 and 1,024 for a team average of 196. That put them in first place heading into the lunch break.

Valdez bowled a high series of 635 for Oswego, and that was good enough for a second place individual medal.

Torrez (602), Manning (599) and Mendez (596) also had nice performances for the Panthers and finished in the top 10 of the tournament.

The second round of the tournament included 13 baker games where teams competed head-to-head for bonus points. The winning team on each pair of lanes earned 30 bonus points each game and the losing team earned none. Oswego went 11-2 in baker play and ended up with an excellent 191 average for the afternoon baker games before adding in bonus points and winning the tournament.

The Panthers return to action in 2014 on Jan. 9 against Romeoville in Southwest Prairie Conference action. The Wolves will do the same on the same day against Minooka.
