West boys bowling sweeps Iroquois in two of final three matches

West Seneca West’s boys bowling team closed out its ECIC South Large Schools schedule Monday by taking down Iroquois for the second time in seven days, 5-2, to pick up wins in two of its final three league matches.

Connor Nowak paced West’s efforts in Monday’s home match, throwing a 247-643 set. Spencer Guise chipped in with a 234-628 set, while Bryan Hill added a 223-603 set. Zachary Powers rolled a 213-586 set, and Noah Tojek contributed a 236 high game for the Indians.

West came into Monday’s match looking to do well after placing fifth in Saturday’s inaugural Section VI Invitational at Airport Lanes. Twenty two boys teams competed under conditions that will mirror those used at sectionals on Wednesday, but the Indians ended their up and down day in fifth place after rallying to second place at the conclusion of the day’s penultimate game.

West entered the Invitational hoping to do well after dropping a close 4-3 decision to Frontier on Jan. 31. Frontier ultimately took the win on the point awarded for total pins, even with Guise rolling a 242-692 set, Kyle Ziemba tossing a 218-634 set, and Nowak hurling a 224-598 set. Tojek chipped in with a 202-584 set.

West recorded its first win over Iroquois, a 4-3 conquest, a day before it took on Frontier. After a slow start, West made the proper adjustments in order to pull out the close victory. Tojek paced the team’s efforts with his 247-660 set, while Guise had a 250-631 set. Hill contributed a 258-623 set, while Ziemba rolled a 226-622 set.

West will kick off postseason action Monday with the ECIC Roll-Offs before returning to Airport Lanes two days later in a bid to defend its overall Section VI Championships title.
