  Lady Spartan Bowling Team Captures Ohio Prep Kick-Off Championship  
  Lexus Petrich Rolls 637 Set For Medalist Honors:   December 3, 2020 Edition  
     On Saturday, Nov. 21 at HP Lanes in Columbus, Oh., the Boardman Spartans girls varsity bowling team took home the championship title at the Ohio High School State Invitational Kick-Off Tournament. The tournament featured some of the top teams across the state of Ohio and consisted of a qualifying round followed by a series of head-to-head best of five baker match-ups until a winner is crowned.
      Boardman took the first seed in the qualifying round in dominating fashion, finishing 216 pins ahead of #2 seeded Ashland heading into match play.
      Facing off against #8 seeded Olentangy in the first round, the Lady Spartan keglers had their first baker game sweep, winning 169-139, 177-168, and 163-158.
      Round two saw the same result against #4 seeded Cincinnati Colerain, with scores of 201-131, 147-145 and 170-153.
      In the final championship round, the Lady Spartans again faced Ashland for the title in what would be a nail-biting, five-game baker series. Boardman and Ashland traded wins, forcing a game five that would see the Spartans emerge victorious, with scores of 193-174, 152-157, 162-154, 180-190 and 172-135.
      “I could not be prouder of or have asked more from this special group of young ladies. There were some moments there where we got ourselves into tough situations, but we fought our way out of them, setting the tone for what I hope will be a very successful season,” said Boardman coach Justine Cullen.
      Lady Spartan Senior Lexus Petrich was the tournament medalist, rolling games of 223, 203, and 211 for a 637 set. Runner-up was her teammate, junior Sam Hoffman, with games of 202, 238, and 164 for a 604 set.
      In sixth place overall was Boardman senior Josalyn Hibbard, with games of 192, 168, and 189 for a 549 set. Finishing in 10th, just five pins short of making the all-tournament team, was senior Fatima Rehman, with games of 165, 235 and 141 for a 541 set. Other contributing members for the winners were senior Destiny Foltz, rolling a 110, and junior Grace Oklota, posting games of 153 and 139.
