     Monticello High School’s bowling teams headed into the holiday break with a home match against Marion, and split the results.

     The Panther boys (3-1) won 3091 to 2476.

     The boys took control during the individual round, during which four Panthers averaged better than 200 for their pairs of games. Caleb Gillmore led the way with a 464 two-game series, Levi Temple had 451 including a 252 game, Easton Lee totaled 409, and Gary Pasker shot 403.

     “I set a score for them to hit, and they underperformed that a little bit,” Monticello coach Brian Meyer said. “We still bowled well. The Baker (round) was good, and we had some big fills (spares).”

     That gave Monticello a 448-pin lead after the individual round, which increased when the team averaged nearly 204 during the Baker round.

     The Panther girls (1-3) fell by a final score of 2196 to 1925. Monticello lost in both the individual and Baker rounds, but had three girls score more than 280 for their two-game series: Emma Hynick with 298, including a 165 game; Aubree Fairley with 291, and Nora Sperfslage with 284.

     Despite the loss, coach Meyer said he was pleased with the performance.

     “We’re all pretty close in skills,” Meyer said of the girls’ team. “We’ve got good athletes, and that’s why we’re as competitive as we are. Marion had some pretty developed players.”
