Perhaps Francesca Schoettle-Colelli of the Plymouth Whitemarsh Lady Colonials should provide tips to PW’s varsity boy bowlers. There have been times this season Schoettle-Colelli posted a higher series than anyone on the boys’ team.
In Suburban One Continental/American action on Dec. 21, Schoettle-Colelli led all bowlers with a 550 series, yet the Lady Colonials succumbed to a 4-0 loss to the host Pennridge Lady Rams at Earl Bowl in Earlington. Its the second consecutive match Schoettle-Colelli had the highest series for all PW boys and girls.
Pennridge anchor Allison Wilms paced the Lady Rams with a 496 series. Casey Barnes posted a 480 series with a 185 game. Melissa Wilms, Allison’s sister, bowled a 201 in the third set.
The Lady Colonials (14-14, 6-14 conference) participated without Celia Curry, Jordan Heaton, and Sammie Leeds. Zara Dugan held the leadoff role and Julianna Pierce made her season debut at varsity (has bowled on PW’s Junior Varsity) as the two-hole. Dugan had a 116 game and 303 series and Pierce notched a 144 game and 382 series.
Schoettle-Colelli led PW each game with scores of 176, 198, and 178. PW four-hold Nicole Esposito added 168 in the third game en route to a 454 series.
Regarding subsitution, PW used the same bowlers while the Lady Rams fielded six. Sarah Craig moved to JV for Pennridge after 120 in the first game. Meanwhile, Sarah Yeung took Craig’s place the following two games and posted 133 and 101.
PW is scheduled to face conference foe North Penn on Dec. 23 at Earl Bowl. The Maidens captured the 2015 Snowroller Showdown crown at Lancaster’s Leisure Lanes on Dec. 19 by defeating Warwick, 2-1, in the baker playoff championship.
During this match, the Lady Rams wore green shirts and black skirts. In past seasons, Pennridge wore either black or green shirts and tan pants. Chestnut Hill College freshman Kara Wireman, a 2015 Pennridge alumna who finished in 18th place at the 2015 Pa. high school bowling state championships, attended this match as a spectator.
