Takes Shots at Kent
members of Oberlin’s Intercollegiate Bowling Team traveled
to Kent on Saturday, Sept. 28, to compete in the Kent State Unconventional
tournament at Twin Star Lanes.
The event consisted of four team games, after which the top five
teams advanced to match-play finals. Oberlin’s three five-player
squads were shown the door early, with the men’s C team missing
the finals by 132 pins. The finals berths were all snagged by squads
from Kent State and the University of Akron.
Jessy Bradish, who had won the championship in the handicap division
of the Autumn Pin Harvest intramural contest the previous evening
at College Lanes, stormed out of the gate with a 209 game —
including five consecutive strikes — Oberlin’s highest
score of the day. She led the women’s squad with a 153 average.
Seniors Mark Santos and Chico Alarcon each rolled a 204 game for
the men’s C team, while junior Adam Freeman notched a 200
score for the men’s B team. Senior Chad Hill of the C squad
topped all Oberlin bowlers with a 172 average for the day, including
consecutive tallies of 190 and 197.
Modeled after Oberlin’s own OC Uncoventional tournament, Saturday’s
contest was a warm-up for the Kent State Tournament, slated to feature
many of the best college teams in the nation at the same lanes in
