PORT CLINTON - On Saturday, the Bowling Green boys won the Redskin Bowling Tournament.
The boys qualified second and defeated Sandusky 2-1 in the championship match. The Bobcat girls qualified first, but lost to Marion Harding, 2-0 in the championship match.
Rossford finished fourth in both the boys and girls divisions, while the Eastwood girls were fifth and the Eagles' boys team was ninth.
The tournament featured the teams rolling three traditional games followed by five Baker games.
The top four teams from each of two squads returned to bowl a round-robin set of Baker games to determine the top two teams.
The qualifying totals were dropped and only that round's scores were used to select the top two teams for the finals. Winning a match awarded the team 30 bonus pins. In the Baker format, all five team members take turns bowling one frame at a time to combine their talents for one team score.
Sandusky totaled 1,524 for those eight games, while the Bobcats were second at 1,504. In the championship best-of-3 match, the Bobcats lost the first game 169-154, but rebounded to top Sandusky 168-155 and 158-149.
In the girls division, the Bobcats led the eight-game round-robin with 1,541 pins. Harding was second at 1,324. Harding sweptĀ  the first two games, however, the scores for the girls finals were not available.
Individually, for the girls, the top four were all from Wood County schools. Despite a final 128 game, Gabriella Calderon from Bowling Green, was the medalist as she opened with games of 206 and 202 for a 536 series.
Kat Przybylski of Eastwood finished second at 532 including a 202 high game. Rossford's Jessica Kulczek, shot a 525 set for the third highest total in the event, while BG's Alisha Noon was one pin back in fourth.
Kulczek had a high game of 189, while Noon recorded a 185 high. BG's Kelsey Parker also cracked the top 10 in eighth with her 502 set.
Eastwood's Hannah Cook finished with a 203 game.
The Eagles' Kyle Waynick was the boys medalist with games of 203 and 218 in his 599 series.
Three of the top five were from county schools. Jacob Spangenberg from BG was second at 589. He had high games of 211 and 196. Rossford's Drew Pinardo opened with the tournament high game of 275, but fell of the pace finishing with a 565 for fifth overall.
