Trailblazer bowlers finish in top 10

MARIETTA, Ga. -- The Vincennes University Bowling team came away with a top 10 finish over the weekend at the Brunswick Southern Classic.

The event marked the second Tier 1 tournament of the season for VU and the Trailblazers finished 10th in the field of 30.

According to VU coach Jesse Gibson, the Trailblazers started off slow on Saturday before making a charge up the team standings by the end of the first day.

“We were battling the lane conditions, but by the end of the day we started to click and had moved up nine spots and into eighth place,” Gibson said.

Much of the same occurred on Sunday during the 24 baker games.

“Day two saw the same struggle with making the right shots for the condition they were on,” Gibson stated. “I would describe the day as being a roller coaster as the players put together many great games while lacking some execution in others which ultimately made it harder to make up the pins to raise the team in the standings.”

Tyler Perry finished as the top individual for the Trailblazers with a third-place finish. Perry finished the tournament with a 6-game average of 222.6 as he was named to his fourth all-tournament team of the season.

“Tyler continued to be a topic of discussion,” Gibson said.

For the season, Perry leads all of college bowling with a 221.86 average over 22 games. His average is three pins better than his closest competition.

Hunter Stevens fell just 12 pins shy of joining Perry on the all-tournament team. The sophomore finished with a 217.5 average which was good for sixth place.

Other VU bowlers included: Joshua Taylor (196.3), Tyler Lewis (187.4) Connor Hickey (179), Isaac Wake (157) and Keaton Green (139).

“While the team did not finish where they would have liked, I still saw key areas many of them work on being put into play which is crucial both in terms of trusting the process and gaining confidence in what they are doing,” the VU coach explained. “While there is still much work to be done in the spare shooting department, I am confident this team has the ability to compete toe-to-toe with any team out there.”

The Trailblazers return to the lanes at the Leatherneck Classic in Moline, IL on Saturday and Sunday.
