Streaks roll past Dragons

LAKE PLACID - The Sebring Blue Streak bowling teams continued their double victory winning Streak in a match against Lake Placid High School at Coz's Sports Bar & Bowl on Thursday. The Blue Streak girls were led by Adrianna Stacy who dominated the field with scores of 218 and 244, averaging 231 for the day. Close behind was standout Katryanna Barina who gave a solid performance with scores of 217 and 178. Tejal Desai, who has been constantly improving, had the third highest total for the girls with games of 156 and 145. Jessica Chaney and Marissa Andujar backed up the team averaging 148 and 141, respectively. The girls sealed the victory with team games of 894 and 842 over Lake Placid's scores of 657 and 663. The Blue Streak boys followed the winning form of Thorsten Przychocki who revved up the match with games of 207 and 245 for a 226 average. Nick Brod, who has been having a great year, fired a 254 in game one. He was followed by Cole Rankin at 187, David Daniels with 175 and Marcus Alviano who posted a 148.
In game two, senior Carl Daniels led the way with a brilliant 256, which was the highest game of the match. He was closely followed by two hander J.C. Bowen with 246 and Thorsten Przychocki at 245. David Daniels contributed a solid 193 and Nick Brod who led game one, struggled in game two, but stayed strong to finish at 133. The game two team score was 1,073 - an average of 214.6. The display of strikes and high individual games by the Blue Streak Boys was enough to win the match against Lake Placid with scores of 971 to 885 in game one and 1,073 to 834 in game two. "The kids bowled really well and we had some great performances," said Sebring bowling coach Rick Wiltse. "It was a great afternoon of bowling." The win improved the Blue Streak boys to a perfect 3-0 on the season while the girls improved to 2-1. "I'm pleased with our performance, but we still need to work on our spare game a little bit," Wiltse said. "We had a real good team spirit and we were bowling as one team which is what we always strive for. "We want to bowl for the team and not the individual and we did a good job of that." The Lake Placid girls were paced by Allysa Priest with a 412 and the boys were led by Landon Davis with a 413. Special recognition this week goes to Marcus Alviano who led the boy's team in practice drills to earn a starting position for the Lake Placid match. Marcus demonstrated outstanding ability to strike and convert spares in the team drills. He also faced the pressure of being the anchor bowler in game two of the Baker format competition. Marcus proved he was up to the task by striking out in the tenth frame to win the game by only 15 pins. Congratulations Marcus! The friendly rivalry between Lake Placid and Sebring will continue later in the season when the two teams will meet again at Heartland Bowl on Oct. 17. The next match for the Blue Streak Bowlers will be on Tuesday when the Blue Streaks will travel to Cypress Lanes in Winter Haven to have a rematch with Lake Wales High School. Plan to attend or stop by Heartland Bowl and watch the players demonstrate their skills in practice.
