Kellogg Community College men’s bowler Bryan Foote broke the school’s high-series record Friday with a score of of 673 at the KCC Invitational at M66 Bowl in Battle Creek.
The previous school record was 655.
KCC finished in second place at the home invitational with an overall team score of 4,105. The first-place winner was Jackson College with a team score of 4,118.
Leading scorers for KCC were freshman Foote (Bronson/Bronson High School), who placed first individually with a high series score of 673; Foote also had the second highest game score with a 248. Freshman Zach Barker (Charlotte/Olivet High School) bowled a 212.
“Leading by 11 heading into the Baker set the team got off to a rocky start, falling at one point to down 90 pins,” Head KCC Bowling Coach Brad Morgan said. “After a strong second-to-last game the Bruins found themselves back in the lead. Some unfortunate missed spares during the final game proved to be too much to overcome.”
Morgan said the team looks forward to competing at the conference and regional finals this week, which begin at 9 a.m. Friday, Feb. 18, at Royal Scot in Lansing.
