Mumaw breaks two school records
Jay Mumaw opened his first frame with a 9 and a spare in a match against New Bremen on Feb. 2 at McBo’s Lanes. He proceeded to strike the rest of the way out for a 290 game setting one school record. He went on to roll six more consecutive strikes in the second game and finished with a 233 to set a new school record for a two-game series at 523.
Mumaw’s record-setting day coupled with the rest of the Versailles bowlers efforts led the Tigers to a win over New Bremen, 2803 to 2762.
“For Jay Mumaw with a 290 the first game this was very awesome to see,” Coach Tyler Phlipot said. “He was locked in his first game and started out with six strikes in his second for a 233. He was in a zone with it. With him being on a roll definitely kept the team lose. I am proud of him on how he handled the pressure. Not too many high school bowlers can say they have rolled a 290.”
The first baker game consisted of Quayd Pearson, Seth Rinderle, Derek Morris, Mumaw and Landon Henry. Henry had a turkey, double and four bagger to roll a 243. Versailles rolled a 972 to New Bremen’s 863.
The second game was made up of Tyler Gehret, Matthew Francis, Morris, Mumaw and Henry. Gehret had a double and a turkey to roll a 194. The Tigers rolled a 944 to the Cardinal’s 1027.
The first baker game saw Gehret, Francis, Morris, Henry and Mumaw. With two open frames, the Tigers were able to roll a 178 to the Cardinals 191.
The second baker game was made up of Pearson, Francis, Justin Heitkamp, Henry and Mumaw. Versailles rolled a 169 to New Bremen’s 177.
The third baker game consisted of Pearson, Francis, Heitkamp, Henry and Mumaw. With one open frame, the Tigers rolled a 239 to the Cardinals 158.
The fourth baker game was comprised of Pearson, Francis, Heitkamp, Mumaw and Henry. Versailles rolled a 171 to New Bremen’s 175.
The fifth baker game saw Pearson, Francis, Heitkamp, Mumaw, Henry and Rinderle. The Tigers rolled a 130 to the Cardinals 171.
“This was a big win for our team. With beating New Bremen we tied for second in the conference; that is a great accomplishment for just a young team,” Phlipot said. “The seniors, Seth Rinderle and Quayd Pearson, were able to start today and help the team out. It was nice to send the two boys out with a win at home.”
