After missing the final cut by one team last year at the Chillicothe Baker Bash, this year’s Lynchburg-Clay’s Varsity Boys Bowling Team bowled their way into the finals. Placing fifth out of 11 teams after the 16 qualifying baker games, the team bowled the 4th seeded team in a best two out of three baker game format. Lynchburg won the first two games putting themselves into the semi-finals. In the semi-finals, after winning the first game and losing the second, the team came back to win advancing the Mustangs into the finals. In an exciting finals, after losing the first game, Lynchburg came back to win the second only to come up a few pins short in the final game.
Both coaches Shawn McLaughlin and Terri Fenner stated that both the boys and girls teams (who also made the final cut at the tournament) have drastically improved this season.
