Marysville Monarch Bowling celebrated their 4 seniors on Tuesday during Senior night. Monarch Bowlers welcomed Olentangy Orange. They also invited Monarch senior parents to help honor their bowlers and participate as live spectators for the first time at home this year.
Marysville Seniors include: Grace Evans (Girl’s Varsity), Xavier Mead (JV), Josh Geer & Gunner Smith (both Varsity). These 4 athletes have given their best to their high school team the last few years. This season was especially difficult with the season being delayed a month. The Monarchs have faced 9 opponents in the last 2 weeks (plus a weekend tournament). Combine this with no live spectators to help cheer them on and it makes for a tough season.
In match play, Monarch Varsity came out on top vs (10-1) Olentangy Orange. Great performances across the board. Senior, Josh Geer rolled a 182 in game 1 and then perfect game of 300 in game 2 of the match. Senior, Gunner Smith bowled the high score in game 1 of 197 and 165 in game 2.
