CORBIN — The Corbin Redhound and Lady Redhound bowling teams picked up a pair of splits on Sunday.
The Redhounds picked up a 6-1 win over Lynn Camp, while dropping a 5-2 decision to West Jessamine, while the Lady Redhounds beat Lynn Camp, 4-3, and lost to West Jessamine, 6-1.
On the boys’ side, the high games against West Jessamine were Brian Nantz (220, 199), Josh Giles (201) and Kory Morris (173), while in the Lynn Camp match, the game highs were Josh Giles (200 and 183).
No high games were given for the Lady Redhound squad.
“Obviously you would like to win every doubleheader, but today we got out with a split,” Redhound coach Kenny Kysar said. “We bowled some great competition in West Jessamine and a Lynn Camp team who in their first year of the program have put together a great team. In the first match against West Jessamine, we came out a little slow to a great team and put up a great challenge to them coming out bowling well in our second games. It was a little too late as we came up just a few frames short that led to our 5-2 defeat.
“We got some great scores out of Brian (Nantz) and Josh (Giles), who continue to be the catalyst of our team,” he added. “In the second game against Lynn Camp, it was a group effort as we pushed our way to a 6-1 win. Had some tough games but managed to gain the advantage late in our games. The split brings us to a 6-3 record going into Tuesday’s match at home against Lee County.”
