The Bryan boys and girls bowling teams each earned victories over the visiting Wauseon Indians at Bryan Lanes on Monday.

The girls then rolled three Baker games of 228, 204 and 139.
“Today was a big day for us,” Bryan coach Dustin Gillett said. “We had Wauseon. Wauseon girls beats us earlier in the season at their house. We knew we needed to come out strong today with both teams only having one loss and sitting at the top. Our girls did just that and were able to walk away with the win.”
The Bryan boys won a close one 2,530-2,428.
The Bears were led by Matt Meade’s series of 505 (269, 236) and Austin Brandeberry’s series of 449 (231, 218). Wade Allport rolled a 319 (166, 153), Zane Laurin shot a 323 (163, 160) and Caleb Muhe shot 338 (156, 182).
The boys then had three Baker games of 192, 192 and 212.
“Wauseon’s boys and our averages are very even,” Gillett said. “We had a tight match earlier in the year and we knew we needed our best today. I’m very happy with how the boys came out wanting to win this. Wauseon bowled very well and kept it pretty close.”
The Bryan boys and girls both now occupy the top spots in the Northwest Ohio Athletic League standings. The Bryan boys stand at 9-0, while the Bryan girls are 8-1.
