CCHS bowling club qualifies for state championships * Central Oregonian
February 14, 2014Crook County High School
The Crook County High School bowling club went to the District 6 Bowling championship just hoping to get a bowler or two to the state championships.
Instead, the team surprised everyone by taking a strong second place at the championships, which were held at the Epicenter in Klamath Falls on Saturday, Feb. 1.
The Cowboys led for most of the day, entering the three-team championship roll-off in first place. However, once in the roll-off, Mazama High School was able to edge past the Cowboys to win the district championship.
Henley High School finished in third place, also qualifying for the state championship.
Crook County High School bowlers Kolin Bicart, Austin Stilwell, Danny Turner, Joe Whitlach, Andre MccNary, and David (Ritchie) Stanley all qualified not only for the state championship, but also for the all-star tournament.
Coaches Octava Best-Beck and Charles Beck noted that the team far surpassed expectations and that they were excited with the team’s performance.
“They were all solid,” said Best-Beck, “but the MVP for the team was Joe Whitlach. We were really proud of the boys.”
Mazama also won the girls championship while Klamath Union finished second and Bend came away with third place.
The state championships will be held at Lava Lanes in Medford on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 22-23.
