BEAVERCREEK — Despite a 649 series by Ryan Hottinger, the Wilmington High School boys bowling team did not advance to the state tournament.
Bowling in the Div. I Southwest District tournament Thursday at Beaver-Vu Lanes, the Hurricane came up short of continuing the season another week, coach Joe Davis said.
On Wednesday, WHS sophomore Katie Hottinger competed in the girls Div. I Southwest District tournament at Beaver-Vu.
She finished with a 472 series, which included games of 164, 182 and 126. She finished 94th out of 154 bowlers who competed in the event.
For the boys, Hottinger was 22nd out of 155 bowlers and just missed the cut to qualify for the state tournament as an individual, Davis said.
