The Columbus Academy bowling team struggled in the first week of February, dropping two games and failing to win its first tournament. On Monday, January 29, the Striking Vikings fell to Buckeye Valley at Penn Lanes. The boys lost 1853-1598 overall and 312-267 in bakers. Adam R. led with 295, Reed S. and Robbie L. tied with 269, Josh K. was just behind with 268, and Phinn B (119) shared 230 with Mark D. (111). The girls lost 1405-974, including 250-164 in bakers. Addy B. led with 288, Sophie F. trailed behind with 188, Morgan L. followed with 176, and Ellen H. finished with 158. 

On Wednesday, January 31, the Vikes hosted East High at HP Lanes. For the boys team, the Tigers edged out Academy with a 1481-1467 win. Adam led with 301, Josh followed with 262, Reed collected 240, Mark bowled 227, and Adi and Henry W. combined for 195. Bakers decided the match, so Academy suffered defeat 259-242. The girls lost 1329-1214. Sophie led with 266, Ellen had 226, Addy followed with 214, Morgan L scored 208, and Lynn Y. ended the evening with 94. They fell in a close game of bakers 230-206. 

On Saturday, February 3, Columbus Academy returned to HP lanes and participated in the CBL tournament. Rather than face off in matches, all schools bowled three matches and three games of bakers separately. At the end of the tournament, the team that tallied the most points won. The boys placed seventh with 2266, while Whitehall-Yearling claimed first place with 3342. The girls fared better, scoring 1629 and placing sixth. First place went to Worthington Christian with a dominant 2589. Adi got 2nd team honors with 494, and Addy received 3rd team honors with 372.

Next week the team has one game against Wellington at Bowlero on Tuesday, February 6. Play begins at 4:00 p.m.
