On Saturday, December 3rd, for the second year in a row the Totino-Grace Bowling team battled for the state title. Last yearm the Eagles came in with mixed expectations and were just happy to be there. To their surprise, they ended in second place, just a few pins short of a state title.

Losing only 2 players from the previous year to graduation placed some high expectations on the Eagles.

The tournament started with pool play. With 6 teams in a pool, 4 total pools and 24 varsity teams all trying to achieve their dreams of a state title. 16 of those teams would advance from pool play to the bracket round.

Unfortunately, TG was not included. They ended up going 1-5 in pool play beating International Falls and losing to Fergus Falls, Owatonna, Winona and Detroit Lakes. Each team that beat them ended up advancing forward in the tournament. Owatonna was able to take the second place title formerly held by the Eagles and Sauk Rapids-Rice/Pierz/Upsala was the eventual champion.

On the bright side, the Eagles were easily the cleanest team in attendance and due to their early exit head coach of the bowling and hockey programs, Mark Loahr was able to make it in time for the puck drop at Brooklyn Park Arena.

With the whole varsity bowling being seniors, the future of Totino-Grace bowling is uncertain. img_1454
