McPherson High’s Carl Frazier made his final Starlite Lanes appearance a memorable one.

On Senior Day here Friday, Frazier rolled a 718 to lead the MHS boys to a 2,537-2,228 victory over Mulvane.

He had games of 236, 257 and 225 to easily dominate all other bowlers in the house.

Jeff Reed had games of 222 and 213 on his way to a solid 626. Other MHS scores were Clayton Ouellette (598, with a 248 high), KC Becker (548), Talin Goebel (533) and Mathew Stiggins (510).

For the JVs, who lost 2,000-1,880, Evan Berry was tops with 499. Other scores were Ben Houston (479), Devin Hartley (470), Mathew Gesaman (432), Sean Birzer (307) and Daniel Reynolds (282).

It also was Senior Day for Bailey Holton, who did herself proud with a 538 for second on the team behind a 545 by Alexis Kieffer. MHS lost the dual as Mulvane had a nice team, 2,437-2,045.

Other MHS scores were Ashley LaSalle (498), Maysan Groote (460), Anna Young (425) and Brooke Miller (366).

The JV girls were a 1,458-1,348 winner behind a 477 behind Amanda Miller. Other scores were Kaylnn Chick (400), Randie Baker (312), Caitlyn Fortner (250) and Kimiko Bullis (215).

“It was a good day to send the seniors off,” MHS coach Herb Halinski said. “Seniors Bailey Holton and Carl Frazier had good days. I know both are planning on going to the adult ranks after the high school state tournament to see how they measure up to the good players in town and challenge themselves bowling as many tournaments as they can in the future.”

Halinski was impressed with the Mulvane girls.

“The girls did a real good job, but just ran up against a buzzsaw with Mulvane,” Halinski said. “Their girls team is one of the best we have faced all season.”

MHS bowls Thursday at Hutchinson.
