We continue our look back at the 2015-2016 winter sports season at Cinnaminson High School with the Top 5 Bowling Matches of the year.
We begin with number five:
#5: Bowling Sweeps Holy Cross to Open Season December 1
After a winless season in 2014-2015 for the girl’s bowling team, the Pirates wanted to get the monkey off their backs as soon as possible this year. They did just that with an impressive 4-0 win over Holy Cross in the first match of the year. The boy’s bowling team also took down Holy Cross 4-0 in the opener en route to an 11-3-3 season.
#4: Bowling Ties and Beats Maple Shade January 11
With the regular season winding down, the Pirates took on Maple Shade at Laurel Lanes in a battle of Freedom Division rivals. After being swept by Maple Shade in the season’s first meeting, the Pirates had a much different plan for the second meeting. Both teams lost their opening games against the Wildcats, but the boy’s team battled back to tie 2-2 and the girl’s team battled back to win their match 3-1.
#3: Bowling Finishes First and Third at BCSL February 4
The Pirates bowling teams competed in the BCSL Divisional Championship on February 4 at Laurel Lanes. The boy’s bowling team finished first, while the girl’s bowling team finished third. Sean Harris (634 total pins) and Paige D’Amato (513 total pins) led the way for their respective squads, taking home the third high series at the match.
#2: Girl’s Bowling Finishes Fourth at Group 1 Sectional February 6
After recording nine wins in the regular season, the girl’s bowling team attended the Group 1 Sectional Tournament on February 6. The top two teams advance to the state tournament. Cinnaminson finished in fourth, just four points behind Gloucester for third. During the tournament the Pirates climbed as high as third place. Paige D’Amato paced the Pirates with a 489 series and a 189 high game.
#1: Boy’s Bowling Wins Group 1 Sectional Title February 13
Following an 11-win regular season, the boy’s bowling team competed at the Group 1 Sectional Tournament on February 13. The top two teams advance to states from the sectional tourney as the Pirates came out on top with a total pinfall of 2,850. The sectional title was an impressive one for the Pirates, who went head-to-head with New Egypt and Maple Shade in the tourney. The Pirates went 0-0-2 against New Egypt and 0-1-1 against Maple Shade in the regular season. Eddie Runquist led the Pirates with a 642 series and Ronnie Runquist picked up the high game with a 246.
