sectional title, last season

Following a season in which the boy’s bowling team went 7-10-0 and the girl’s bowling team went winless, the Pirates were hoping that 2015-2016 would be a bit of a turnaround. Turns out, both squads would post the best seasons in quite some time at Cinnaminson, with the boy’s securing a sectional title and the girl’s rebounding to win nine matches.

Let’s begin our season review with a look back at the season the girls enjoyed. The Pirates finished 9-7-1 overall and 5-4-1 in the division, good for 11 points in the Freedom.

The Cinnaminson girls got the monkey off their back starting with the first match of the season, a 4-0 victory over division rival Holy Cross. The win to open the season was just the beginning for this squad.

The girls enjoyed a four-match win streak in the middle of the schedule that helped position them for the sectional tournament. The Pirates would finish in fourth place at the Group 1 Sectional. The top two teams advance to states. This tourney came days after finishing third at the BCSL Tournament.

In their turnaround season, the girls squad suffered just one sweep by a divisional opponent this year, New Egypt. The Warriors went on to win the Freedom.

After a season that saw the boy’s bowling team finish three matches under .500, the Pirates enjoyed quite a turnaround in 2015-2016. Cinnaminson ended the year 11-3-3 overall with a 6-1-3 mark in the Freedom Division, good for 15 points.

The Pirates enjoyed a nine-match unbeaten streak from the middle of the schedule towards the end in preparation for the post-season run they would make in February.

In division play, the Pirates swept three of their opponents in Delran, Holy Cross and Bordentown. They went 0-1-1 against Maple Shade and 0-0-2 against New Egypt.

At the BCSL Tournament, the boy’s team took home first place with a total pinfall of 2,817. Sean Harris led the Pirates with a 634 series, the third highest at the tournament.

Not long after winning the BCSL Tournament, the Pirates took part in the Group 1 Sectional Tournament. The boy’s bowling team took home the sectional title with a total pinfall of 2,853. Eddie Runquist had the high series for Cinnaminson at 642 pins. Ronnie Runquist had the high game at 246 pins.

The sectional title win sent the boy’s bowling team to the state tournament. At the Group 1 State Tournament the boy’s bowling team finished 8th out of 10 teams with a total pinfall of 2,611.

Eddie Runquist led the Pirates with a 630 series and a 254 high game.
