For the second year in a row, the Shores boys’ bowling won the City title.

“I was surprised because we hadn’t been bowling to our potential,” coach Sam Gauraud said. “There are a lot of really good teams here in Muskegon, so I knew it would be tough, but we battled and took care of business.”

Shores finished fourth in the knockout round and then defeated No. 1-seeded Oakridge in the semifinals. In the finals, the Sailors defeated Ravenna.

“It was surprising and amazing at the same time,” Gautraud said. “I knew that we had the talent to win, but I’ll admit that I didn’t expect us to bowl that well. It was a crazy day. I am so proud of what these boys accomplished.”

To begin the tournament, Shores was seeded fourth in the bracket.

“I knew that seeding doesn’t matter much in bowling. Anyone can beat anyone in a single match, so I liked our chances,” Gautraud said. “We came on strong at the end of qualifying, so I thought we had a good chance.”

Senior Tony Long had the highest individual placing for the Sailors, taking sixth place.

“It was a really good experience,” Long said. “I was able to prove that I am one of the best, and that is a good accomplishment.”
