SCHENECTADY – Lansingburgh bested the field by more than 200 pins to take the team title at the Section 2 Class B boys bowling championships Friday, Feb. 8, at Boulevard Bowl.
The Knights had three bowlers record six-game series of more than 1,200 pins to win their 11th Sectional title with a total pin fall of 5,912. Mechanicville was second with a score of 5,634, and Schuylerville placed third with a score of 5,487.
Codi Genthner led Lansingburgh with a six-game total of 1,254, which included a high single game of 246. Mike Connally was second on the Knights with a total of 1,228 pins, which included a three-game set of 654, and Grant Laustrup added a six-game series of 1,203 that included a high single game of 254.
Lansingburgh now awaits the results of Monday’s Class C/D tournament to see if it will represent Section 2 in the small school division at the state tournament in Syracuse. The top six individual scorers from the Class B tournament will find out Tuesday if they are headed to Syracuse as part of the Section 2 team. That will depend on which teams qualify for states in the large and small school divisions, as well as who the top individuals are from the Class C/D and the Class A tournaments.
