MUSKEGON — Splitting a pair of Baker games didn’t affect the Ludington boys bowling team in Wednesday night’s match with Montague at the Sherman Lanes in Muskegon, as the Orioles pulled out a narrow 15.5-14.5 victory over the Wildcats.

But the Wildcat girls swept both Baker games from the Orioles, and finished the night with a 20-10 overall match victory.
“The bowling lanes at Sherman are tough to read,” said Ludington bowling coach Maggie Bates.
“Our bowlers really struggled on them … however, they were trying and I like to see that.
“I’ve seen some good things this week, and I’ve found more things that the kids need to work on.”
Ludington’s boys started their night with a convincing 162-146 win in the first Baker game, but the Wildcats turned around to win the second, 136-110.
Jaden Schultz paced the Orioles effort wiht a 153 in the first game, while Cameron Fetters rolled a 135, Dominic Reamer finished with a 125.
Damiot Ott and Aiden Zinn each rolled a 102, and Amari George and Justin Lunde combined for an 84.
In the second game it was Ott leading the way with a 175. Reamer had a 168, Fetters a 142, Shultz a 115 and Zinn with a 112.
On the girls side Ludington lost both Baker games, 106-90 and 102-80.
Rylee Hardenburg paced the Orioles in the first game, rolling a 123, with Elicia Byrd turning in a 117, Anna Grimes had a 115, Grace Ashley a 101 and Maddie Enbody and Karly Gokey combined for a 77.
Game two saw Hardenburgh come with a 118 to lead the way, with Enbody rolling a 99, Ashley and Grimes combined for a 94 and Sofia Vivenz and Sophia Rupp combined for an 87.
Ludington returns to the lanes on Jan. 21 at Zeeland to compete in the Zeeland East Invitational.
