Massac County's boys bowling team missed the four-team, regional cut by 108 pins Saturday at the Herrin Bowl. Bowling in their home house, Herrin's Tigers rolled to a 317 pin win over their nearest competitor the Wildcats from Anna-Jonesboro.

Harrisburg rode the arm of Sebastian Barton to third place, and Steeleville rode Nicholas Craig's powerhouse series to the fourth and final advancing place.

Craig shot a red-hot 1321 six game series to take the individual honors. That figures out to a lofty 220 average for six games. Steeleville totaled 5170 pins while Massac finished in fifth place with 5062 pins.

For Massac, Justin Mitchell shot a nice 1165 series which placed him a tie for seventh place overall and averaged out to 194 per game. Dalton Holt also made the individual cut with a 1026 series. The next stop for the lads is at Collinsville's Camelot Bowl this Saturday.

On the girls' side, senior Paige Troutt reached a milestone this past week at Cardinal Lanes in Paducah. In their victorious match against Tilghman, Troutt rolled games of 246, 224 and 233 for a 703 series.

Take it from me, and anyone else who has ever bowled, a 700 series is quite an accomplishment. Congratulations and wishing you several more Paige.
