SCHENECTADY, N.Y. -- The Hoosick Falls Central School bowling team rolled to the Section II C-D championship on Monday, its third straight sectional crown. The Panthers scored 5,822 pins, topping Mechanicville in second by nearly 200 pins.
Canajoharie was third, Duanesburg fourth and Middleburgh rounded out the top 5. Twenty-five teams competed in the tournament.
Sophomore Ken Marbot led Hoosick Falls with a high game of 252 (which was the third highest game of the tournament) and a six-game total of 1,317, the highest six-game series of the tournament.
Marbot was followed by Josh McCart 224-1,195, Bryan Callahan 223-1,166, Josh Conn 196-1,073, Stephen Surdam 222-747 (four games), and Logan Brogue 179-324 (two games).
Now, Hoosick Falls now must wait to see if their total will hold up to go to the States as a team when the Class A and B teams bowl later this week. Marbot can also qualify if he has one of the top six scores from a non-winning team.
