Juniors Ben Kastner and Ryan Andrews led the way for the Rangers on Wednesday with their scores of 180, but the team fell well short of victory against the Lowell Red Arrows, losing 23-7. While the girls had some promising individual performances as well from seniors Addy Kaechele and Zoey Guikema, they too were defeated handily 22-8. This was the first conference event for the Rangers in almost two weeks, with previous games being canceled due to the recent inclement weather.

The Rangers went down right away, losing the first Baker game. In the second game, Ben and Ryan each bowled in the 180s, leading the team to its first and only victory of the day by 1 point. Moving past the Baker games and into the individual matches, the Red Arrows took four out of five possible points in game one and won another three of five points in game two. Overall, it was a disappointing day for the Rangers, as they went on to lose 23-7.

On the girls side of things, the games didn’t go much better. The Baker games were dominated by the Red Arrows, who held a 10-0 lead moving into the individual matchups. The first individual matchups were won by the Red Arrows 5-3, while the Rangers came back to win the second game 5-3. Addy Kaechle bowled a 174 in the first game despite the defeat, while Zoey Guikema had the high score in the second game with a 167. The late win wasn’t enough for FHC, as the Lady Rangers were defeated 22-8.

This week, the Rangers will face the Greenville Yellow Jackets on Monday and the Ottawa Hills Bengals on Wednesday. The boys beat both Greenville and Ottawa Hills earlier in the season, defeating Greenville 17-13 behind Ben Kastner’s monstrous score of 245. The girls have already beaten the Bengals, but they will be looking for revenge against Greenville, a team they lost to narrowly earlier in the season 18-12. These two games will be the last of the season before the OK White conference tournament, so both teams will be looking to not only win but also improve their overall games before the conference tournament.
