TERRA, Reagan win GMAC bowling

TERRA claimed its second consecutive GMAC boys bowling title while Reagan won the GMAC girls team title Tuesday at Bird Bowl.

The Wolves won their first GMAC title, in any sport, with a bowling sweep last season.

“It means a lot,” Wolves boys coach Ed Garland said. “It was a gutsy performance. When you are the defending champions, everybody is out to get you.”

Kevin Morrissey anchored the 3-2 victory over Coral Reef in the final of the eight-team, single-elimination tournament. Morrissey had two strikes in the 10th frame, five times on the day.

Reagan, the sixth-seeded girls team, bounced third seed Coral Reef, two seed TERRA and top seed Ferguson for the victory. The Bison fell behind the Wolves 2-0 in the second game before storming back with three consecutive victories to advance to the finals.

“Everything surprised us,” Bison coach Elena Cabarcos said. “We were not expecting this at all. It blew us away completely. The girls played together helped each other out and knew what they had to do.”

Morrissey said sophomore Marek Bochnik was instrumental in the win.

“We performed pretty well as a team in the last match,” Morrissey said.
