“She got sick of watching me and started bowling herself,” Audrey said.
Audrey Renner isn’t one to rest on her laurels, especially not with the high school season getting underway in a week. The Fairborn senior has high hopes for the Skyhawks and state aspirations for herself.
“Two years ago, I missed the cut by 10 pins,” she said. “It’s my last year, so I’d love to make it to state.”
The Fairborn four-year varsity bowler has an added incentive to make a state trip – family bragging rights.
“My sister made it her senior year,” she said.
Back-to-back: Holleigh Hagens finished on top for the second consecutive year as the 11-year-old won the prep girls handicap (703) and scratch (496) city titles. Hagens won the prep girls handicap title last season and finished second in the scratch division.
First time champ: While several young bowlers were repeat champions this year, 8-year-old Jayce Dill earned his first city title. The third grader – who has a 165 high game to his credit – won the bantam scratch title with 395. The straight-A student was second in the bantam handicap division to Cody Polen.
