Great matches occur as Michiana Central Conference visits Wawasee Bowl

Posted on Nov. 11, 2013 at 12:00 a.m. | Updated on Nov. 11, 2013 at 4:09 p.m.

Wawasee Bowl in Syracuse hosted week three of Michiana Central Conference High School competition on Tuesday, Nov. 5 with tight matches in both the boys and girls divisions.

The boys featured two matches ending in 11-9 scores with Northridge edging Elkhart Central and Elkhart Memorial edging Jimtown. Two girls matches were tied at 10-10 with total pin count for the match giving Central the win over Northridge and Jimtown over Memorial.

Leading the boys totals for the event were Northridge’s Michael Schlabach (438), Memorial’s Michael Hartman (406) and NorthWood’s Christian Zentz 402. For the girls, Central’s Lizzy Glaser set the new season high series (427) with Memorial’s Wendy McQueen posting the season's second best (412). Jimtown’s Brianna Ferro was third highest for the girls (369).

Boys recap

Norhridge squeaked past Central 11-9 with the final two matches of the evening both decided by a single pin and won by Jarret Thomas and Josh Garfein. Had either of the two matches gone the other way, Central would have taken the match having higher pin count for the match.  It wasn’t until Garfein converted the 6-10 spare on the final ball rolled in the match that the outcome was decided. Schlabach’s consistent 223-215 (438) along with Gafein’s 198-196 (394) paced the Raiders victory while Garrett Moles 157-236 (393) and Walter Griffin III 182-195 (377) led Central.

Wawasee downed Fairfield 19-1 led by Will McCarthy’s 201-200 (401). Matt Taylor posted a 179 game for Fairfield.

Central as the draw team downed NorthWood 16-4. Christian Zentz 185-217 (402), and Kobe Benszidez 185-191 (376) were tops for NorthWood.

Memorial remains the only unbeaten team topping Jimtown in another close match, 11-9. Jimtown took Game 1 by a 7-3 count with Memorial bouncing back to win Game 2 with a score of 8-2. Michael Hartman paced Memorial with 188-218 (406) while Carl Prince and Joey Juday both totaled 360 for Jimtown.

Concord posted the season’s highest series with 1,865 in their 16-4 win over Goshen. Concord’s starting five were consistent with series between 358 and 381.  Bradd Chupp was the high scorer for Goshen with 190-202 (392).
