PIQUA — After a two-week hiatus thanks to weather, the Troy bowling teams finally got back into action at Piqua on Tuesday at Brel-aire Lanes — and the Trojans’ return to competition was successful, as Troy swept the Indians.


The Troy boys (5-4, 2-1 Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division) handed Piqua a 2,325-2,093 setback while the girls (7-2, 3-0 GWOC North) pulled away late to come out on top 1,965-1,903.


The boys team steadily enlarged their lead over the Indians as the match progressed. Michael Barkett shot a 244 game and 431 series to lead Troy. Andrew Spencer added a 205 game and 394 series.


After two regular games, the Troy girls held the slimmest lead possible — a 1-pin advantage over Piqua. But the first baker game proved to be decisive as Troy put together a 191 to Piqua’s 128 to open a 64-pin lead that the Indians were not able to overcome.


Allie Isner rolled steady games of 179-174 to pace Troy. Rachel Darrow rolled a 189 game and 350 series.


Troy will see half of the GWOC North in three days as rescheduling has created a mini-homestand for the Trojans. Troy hosts Butler on Thursday, Greenville on Friday, and Trotwood-Madison on Saturday morning. All matches are at Troy Bowl.
