Go Sabres!

During last weeks bowling win against TC West, the Lady Sabres bowled the highest game yet this year for any Conference girls team: 841. These girls are on fire!. 

In recent weeks, three Sabre bowlers have bowled their highest individual games in match play.  Rachael Burch recenlty bowled a 208, and during last week’s game, Hannah Elenbaas led the way with a 231 and Brooke Smith chipped in with a 211. Hannah’s 231 was the highest game bowled by a TCCS girl since the MHSAA began sponsoring bowling. Way to go ladies!  The Sabres are back at it this Saturday 11am against Glen Lake at Lucky Jacks.
