PIQUA — Piqua’s Brel-Aire Lanes was the site of the Troy girls bowling team’s biggest disappointment last season.
And while winning a state title later that year helped, some honest-to-goodness payback Thursday was just as enjoyable.
The Trojan girls took control early and steadily pulled away from the Greater Western Ohio Conference American North Division rival Indians, coasting to a 2,042-1,709 victory on a very low-scoring day in Piqua. The Troy boys, meanwhile, completed the sweep with an equally consistent 1,946-1,897 victory.
Jenna Stone led all scorers on the day for Troy’s girls (10-1, 8-1 GWOC American North) with 165-235—400, A’leigha Smith rolled 195-173—368, Cassidy McMullen rolled 137-170—307, Kirsten McMullen rolled 142-128—270, Alyssa Shilt added a 177 game and Sierra Brown a 154.
For Troy’s boys (7-4, 6-3 GWOC American North), Hayden Jackson led the way with 178-183—361 and Jason Shiltz followed with 165-195—360, A.J. Kendall rolled 201-139—340, Landon Flory rolled 149-143—292, Carson Rogers added a 147 game and Logan Jones a 140.

VANDALIA — The Tippecanoe bowling teams dropped a pair of Greater Western Ohio Conference American North Division matches Thursday at Butler, with the boys falling 2,649-2,244 and the girls falling 1,977-1,571.

For the Red Devils girls (2-11, 2-8 GWOC American North), Ashlyn Herzog and Jessica Goodson both rolled 152 games, with Herzog finishing with a 291 series and Goodson a 285. Abbey Lee added a 147 game and Katie Bellas had a new high game of 138.
