Turley picked it up in the second round, with 101 and 124. Hoffman had 117 and 98. Olexio scored 105 and 109. Sull had 96 in the second round, and Gurevitz scored 69.

The boys faced a tough loss against Teays Valley, who improved their record to 12-1 with the win. The Viking vs. Viking bout was dominated by Valley’s two stars: Jacob Thompson and Chase Young. Thompson had 201 and 244, with Young having 205 and 220. Leading the Striking Vikings, standout Vincent White Jr.’21, recorded a healthy 175 and 117. Freshman Ryan Reagan also had a great game, with 141 and 138. Will Matthews’19 showed his veteran skills, putting up 124 and 133. Cole Leis‘21 had a strong second round, with 134 after putting up 104. Xander Wood’21 had 104 in the second round, and Michael Hoffman’20 had 99 in the first round.

The fight against Columbus International was another story, coming in the form of a 1474 to 675 victory for the Vikings. Hoffman was huge in a bounce back game, scoring 154 and 180. Wood also followed the trend of bounce back games, putting up 144 and 109. Skyler Simpson’21 showed up, bowling 132 and 99. Reagan took advantage of the second round, scoring 156. White had 111 in the first round, Matthews had 94 in the first round, and Gabe Taub‘21 bowled 84 in the second round. The Vikings carried that moment into their February 6 match against Haugland Learning Center, securing a tight victory of 1478 to 1323. White had 172 and 117.

This was a successful week for both boys and girls bowling, and both squads will look to carry the newfound momentum into next week’s sectionals.
