After last Friday’s results, Kellogg Community College’s men’s bowling team continues to rank first in the team’s Michigan Community College Athletic Association’s Western Conference.
KCC finished in second place Friday, Feb. 4, at the Glen Oaks Community College Invitational in Three Rivers with an overall team score of 4,634. The first-place winner was Jackson College with a team score of 4,690.
Leading scorers for KCC were freshman Jacob Bax (Battle Creek/Harper Creek High School), who placed third with a high game of 226 and a series score of 624; freshman Yi Deonta March (Albion/Marshall High School), who placed fourth with a high game of 204 and a series score of 578; freshman Zach Barker (Charlotte/Olivet High School), who placed sixth with a high game of 215 and a series score of 587; freshman Robert Burns III (Marshall/Marshall High School), who placed seventh with a high game of 234 and a series score of 585; and freshman Colin McDowell (Marshall/Olivet High School), who placed ninth with a high game of 211 and a series score of 551.
Head KCC Bowling Coach Brad Morgan said the team looks forward to bowling at finals and defending their home field at M-66 Bowl.
“The Bruins showed up for a shootout at South Lanes,” Morgan said. “Five of the Bruins placed in the Top 10 after singles. After singles we were down by seven pins. Our first Baker set ultimately came back to hurt us as we gave up 112 pins to the leaders. We began to chip away at that advantage but ran out of time, finishing 56 pins back from the lead.”
The men’s bowling team hosts the final MCCAA Western Conference invitational of the year at 11 a.m. Friday, Feb. 11, at M-66 Bowl in Battle Creek.
