Alvin High School Boys Bowling Win Regional Tournament
March 11, 2010By Joe Ruiz of Alvin High School
The Alvin Bowling Center hosted the Regional VIII High School Bowling Tournament on Saturday March 6. Three Houston area districts brought their best players to compete for the chance to qualify for the Texas State High School Bowling Tournament that will be held in San Antonio on March 27 and 28.
Regional Tournament Team Competition Results
The tournament format for the team event was round-robin where each team bowls against every other team once. Upon completion of the round-robin phase, each school had their 8 games added up and the teams were then seeded based on their totals. The next phase would be a position round where Seed 1 would bowl Seed 2, Seed 3 against Seed 4, etc.
At the end of the round-robin phase, the Alvin High School Yellowjackets were seeded number 1 by a slim 16 pin lead ahead of the number 2 seeded Clear Brook High School Boys team that just defeated them on the prior game. The Alvin vs. Clear Brook showdown ended with the Alvin Boys winning their position round match and claiming the 1st Place spot at the Regional Bowling tournament.
The Alvin Boys Team players are David Warren, Hayden Basiliere, Isaac Gonzalez, Tyler Wetmore, Robert Amrhein, Julian Koontz, and Lee Koontz.
