Varsity Bowlers have Outstanding Season

North Tonawanda’s Varsity Bowling teams both had strong seasons, each finishing second in the always tough Niagara Frontier League.
The Lady Jacks finished with 12 wins and 2 losses, beating everyone except Niagara Falls, the eventual league and Section VI Champions. Seniors Rebecca Conlan, Abbey Kieffer and Cassidy Powers were Captains of the team which also consisted of Whitney Werth, Bridgette Enright, Haylee Sutton, Jessica Sass, Samantha Michlin and Jordan Johnson.
 
Junior Kyle Behr was the only returning starter and thus the Captain of the Lumberjack boys squad. Despite having an inexperienced line-up, the Jacks finished surprisingly with 11 wins and 3 losses. Dillon Snopkowski, Antonio LaBarbera, David Werth, Hunter Bolam, Nick Cook, Joshua Hojnowski, Jarod Powers and Eli Williams rounded out the team.
 
Season highlights included a school record 845 series by Kyle Behr, which included games of 298, 299 and 248. Dillon Snopkowski rolled a 717, his first 700 to lead NT over Niagara Falls. Cassidy Powers’ led the girls with a 192 average and 716 series. Rebecca Conlan had a 255-687 and Abbey Kieffer a 286-684.
 
Behr and Powers were both second at the Section VI Championships, earning a trip to States on Long Island. Kyle and the Section VI Boys All-Section Team finished seventh, while Cassidy led the Section VI girls to a second place finish. The girls were fifth with one game to go when Cassidy came up big. She finished with 5 consecutive strikes for a 234, lifting Section VI’s girls to the Silver Medal. It was a fitting finish to Cassidy’s fine bowling career at NTHS.
