Tecumseh bowlers earn county crowns, girls win SEC

Tecumseh’s bowling teams have had a busy but successful schedule, winning championships and beating Southeastern Conference rivals.

On senior day, when both Tecumseh bowling teams celebrated 11 seniors, it was another strong day of collective bowling. The visiting Chelsea Bulldogs were swept by the Tribe teams at Ten Pin Alley on Monday, Feb. 11.

The Lady Tribe closed out their season as undefeated SEC champions. The girls beat their opponents 22-8. Sydney Deters led the ladies with a nice 203 game, and Liza Verrier pitched a 200 game to help secure the victory.

During the boys’ match, the Tribe came out on top 21.5-8.5. Julian Liuska, got the boys going with his two games of 236 and 226. SEC league average leader Elliot Discher, continued his strong bowling with his games of 215 and 233. Logan Hoffmeister also delivered with his games of 206 and 217.

The JV teams also had great days against Chelsea. The 10-1 (SEC) JV girls and 16-0 (SEC) JV boys each won their matches, 27-3.

The big game of the day for Tecumseh was rolled by Devin Macomber, who threw a 252 game in the JV boys match. Logan Roth rolled games of 163 and 169.

On Saturday, Feb. 9, the Tecumseh bowlers, once again, earned championships at the Lenawee County High School Bowling Tournament held at Lenawee Rec in Adrian.

Verrier earned a repeat championship. Defending champion Liuska played his teammate Discher in a head-to-head bowling match in the semi-finals. After two games it was Discher who came out on top this year. He moved on to the final match and methodically striked and spared to eliminate his opponent to win the boys championship trophy.

Tecumseh qualified three ladies into the medal round; Kaylee Pinter, Taylor Randolph, and Verrier. The boys qualified four boys into the medalist play. Discher, Hoffmeister, Liuska, and Hunter Rapaich. Tecumseh earned three of the final four spots on the boys’ side, and two of the final four sports on the girls’ side.

The 13-2 (SEC) boys scored a 22-8 win. The lady Tribe split their Baker set with Bedford winning the first game with a nice 203, but dropped the second game with a rare low 147 game. The girls got back to business winning both sets of regular games. Pinter led the girls with a 202. Tia Hunt rolled a 178 to help secure the victory. Madelyn Miller had a big 174 Ilsyiia Shakirova pitched a 173 game to grab the JV lady Tribe’s 29-1 victory.
