“For Jay Mumaw with a 290 the first game this was very awesome to see,” Phlipot said. “He was locked in his first game and started out with six strikes in his second for a 233. He was in a zone with it. With him being on a roll definitely kept the team loose. I am proud of him on how he handled the pressure. Not too many high school bowlers can say the have rolled a 290.”

With beating New Bremen we tied for second in the conference; that is a great accomplishment for such a young team.”
