It was an exciting tournament today at Five Star Lanes for not only the Dragons but the spectators too. The Lady dragons competed against 24 teams today @ the Tri-County Invitational, hosted by Troy High School. It was an all Baker format consisting of 12 games with the top 16 teams advancing (Top Seed vs. Bottom Seed) for the head to head best 2 out of 3 Baker matches.
The Dragons set a record today during Baker game play throwing a 300 in game 3 (out of 12) making them the 1st girls team in the state of Michigan to bowl a 300 Baker game. This was exciting for the team and those who got to see the game in action.
The lady dragons went on to qualify 3rd after 12 Bakers with their first opponent being the 14th seed Farmington Mercy. The first game was close with LO bowling a 154 and Farmington Mercy with a 152. The lady dragons decided that they wanted to finish the match in 2 and bowled a 180 to Farmington Mercy’s 118.
The next match up was with Stevenson HS. Stevenson put the dragons to the test but they were (again) able to finish the match against Stevenson in 2. Game 1: Lake Orion 196 – Stevenson – 191. Game 2: Lake Orion 211 – to 205. Fantastic Bowling!
The girls were then paired with John Glenn, last years Tri-County winner, and it was another very competitive match. Lake Orion took game 1: 258 to their 193. John Glenn took game 2: 197 to our 171 but the dragons pushed back hard and won game 3: Lake Orion: 193 to their 137.
Our final battle was against our friends to the North – Oxford. The Dragons were ready to battle today and came out on top beating the Oxford Wildcats in 2. Game 1: Lake Orion – 211 to their 174 and Game 2: Lake Orion: 221 – Oxford: 189.
Congratulations to the Lake Orion Girls Varsity team for their 300 Baker Game and their 1st place win @ the Tri-County Tournament today at Five Star Lanes.
