Clarkston wins boys regional; Wildcats take 2nd for boys and girls; Lady Dragons place 3rd

WATERFORD — A year after missing the state tournament by 44 pins, the Clarkston boys bowling team left little doubt on Friday as the Wolves claimed their fourth regional championship in five years at the MHSAA Division 1 team regional tournament at 300 Bowl.

“I have seven kids who have nothing but heart,” Clarkston coach Leonard Kersten said. “It wasn’t one person who stepped up, but everyone contributed. At the end of the day, we wanted to qualify. That was our big goal, but to win it, that’s just the cherry on top.”

Clarkston’s 962 pins in the final regular game were enough to overcome a 20-pin deficit and defeat Oxford 4182-4122. The second-place finish for the Wildcats boys matched what the girls did with both squads advancing to the state finals.

“We’re pretty excited (about getting both teams through),” Oxford coach JR Lafnear said. “It’s been a number of years since we’ve gotten both teams through.”

Davison also had both the boys and girls qualify for the finals as the girls claimed the regional title with 3736 pins and the boys took third place, passing Walled Lake Central in the final regular game, with 3984.

The other qualifier for the girls was Lake Orion. The Dragons edged out Lapeer by 13 pins.

The bowlers will be back in action at 300 Bowl on Saturday for the individual regional tournament while the state qualifiers will compete at Sterling Lanes on March 5.
