CORBIN — The Corbin Redhounds bowling team is off to an impressive 3-2 start this season after upending Madison Central Tuesday, 6-1.
The Redhounds have wins over Madison Central (twice) and Madison Southern with their losses coming against East Jessamine and Lee County.
“I have received a great turnout of a group of guys who are willing to learn and better themselves into improving and working on key weaknesses in order to get better,” Corbin coach Kenny Kysar said. “With leadership coming from senior Josh Giles, we have gotten off to a good start going 3-2 and 2-0 at home. We have solidified a great core of bowlers and get better and better with each match.
“I look forward to how well this team can compete throughout the season against some tough competition,” he added. “Season to date averages through five matches are Josh Giles 180 (high game 237), Brian Nantz 172 (high game 198), Zack Waltz 163 (high game 215), Matthew Brown 162 (high game 211), Kory Morris 160 (high game 213). Consistency is the key and we are utilizing each member of this team to accomplish that.”
Against Madison Central, Corbin rolled to the easy win by receiving high game total from Giles (194), Nantz (193) and Waltz (190).
“I’m very pleased with how my team came out early and got in a groove,” Kysar said. “The last couple of matches we had struggled finding our mark and getting comfortable from the start. We showed signs of early improvement as we got consistent in the first game and it set the tone for how the rest of the match played out.”
