THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Peshtigo Keglers Win District Bowling Title, Advance to State
Issue Date: February 1, 2017
The Peshtigo Bulldog bowling team won the district 8 title defeating Green Bay Preble in their sectional final match 7-2 to advance to the State tournament which will be held March 3-5 in Milwaukee. Its the first time that Peshtigo has won the season championship outright.
In the sectional play last Friday the Bulldogs averaged 209 for the 10 game session, good enough for 3rd place in the 12 team sectional behind BayPort and DePere. Combining the 12 points for winning the district season title and 10 points for the 3rd place finish Peshtigo accumulated the highest point total in the district. Ashwaubenon is the other representative from Division 2 from our district. Bayport and DePere are the representatives in Division 1.
Peshtigo's Tyler Lund, Trevor Bloch and Mitchell Ahrens all qualified for the individual state championship the same weekend. Ahrens qualified by shooting 684 and a 3rd place finish at the individual sectional the week before. Lund and Bloch qualified by being 3rd and 4th highest in the district for mark percentage the entire season. The district received a total of 8 entries to the state tourney.
Lund and Bloch were also named to the all district team. Ahrens was named to the 2nd team.
