Saratoga Central Catholic claimed the team title at the Section 2 Class C/D boys bowling championships Monday, Feb. 11, at Schenectady’s Boulevard Bowl.
The Saints finished with a total pin fall of 5,629 to earn the team title over runner-up Canajoharie, but it was not enough to knock Class B champion Lansingburgh from its state tournament berth. The Knights will represent Section 2 in the small school division at the state tournament in Syracuse after posting a score of 5,912 on Friday.
Timmy Barrett led Spa Catholic with a six-game series of 1,175, while Zach Miles contributed a score of 1,143 on the day. Barrett’s performance included a high game of 279 during the afternoon session. Micaela Barboldt had the high three-game series for the Saints with a 610 during the morning session.
Two individuals moved into contention for making the Section 2 team going to the state tournament. Canajoharie’s Cian DiMezza rolled a six-game series of 1,252, and Catholic Central’s Noah Miller had a total pin fall of 1,233 for the day. They – along with Johnstown’s Mick Winton, Mechanicville’s Jacob LaFountain, Cohoes’ Max Suprenant and Notre Dame-Bishop Gibbons’ Alex Belcher – await the results of Thursday’s Class A championships to see if they will be part of the six-person Section 2 team.
