The high-game actual trophy was won by Donohue, who bowled a 242. The high-series actual trophy was taken by senior Conor Minogue, who bowled a 375 for two games.

Senior Connor King took the high-game with handicap trophy by rolling a 208, and senior Matt Thomas grabbed the high-series with handicap trophy by rolling a 377 for two games. Lucas was the Most Improved Bowler, raising his average by 16 pins.

“Three of our top five are back,” head coach Joe Fowler said. “We feel good about our chances. Defending regional champ Conor Minogue is back. We have eight strong bowlers on our varsity team. We feel pretty balanced. We have four good seniors and good junior and sophomore classes to balance out the varsity.”
