Gators fare well in sweep of St. Joes
TribLIVE Sports Videos
Gateway bowling head coach Andrew Smith said he continues to be impressed with the performance of his teams, and the Gators swept past St. Joseph last week in Northeast section action.
Each team won by 7-0 scores.
Juniors Angela Chusko and Tori Smith again paced the girls team, as both rolled three games above 200.
Chusko (213-247-249) tallied her second 700-plus series of the season. She led all of the WPIBL with a 214.60 average before Wednesday's match against Burrell.
“Like her first 700 series, Angela improved every game,” coach Smith said.
Tori Smith bowled a 200, a 247 and a 201 for a 648 series.
“It's tough to lose when two bowl above 650 and you get a lot of support from the rest of the team,” coach Smith said.
Junior Morgan Sayre (137-193-170) added a 500 series for the Gators, who improved to 4-1 and remained tied with Plum and Penn Hills atop the section standings.
On the boys side, junior Jon McAnany rose to sixth in the Northeast section in average with a 671 series (170-264-237).
“As the only starter back from last year, Jon is really earning that leadership role on the team,” coach Smith said.
“He's improved throughout the season.”
McAnany found himself with a 205.92 average through week five.
“That 264 is a great feat for him,” coach Smith said. “(The average) is better than he thought it would be at this point of the season, but I know he can keep that up.”
Freshman Ryan Skladany bowled a 196 and 124 in games one and two, respectively, but he rebounded in game three for a 216.
“Ryan really found his line at the end of the second game,” coach Smith said.
Fellow freshman Bailey Diggins tallied a 570 series (204-187-179) against St. Joseph.
Gateway improved to 3-2 after the St. Joseph match, behind Plum (5-0) and Penn Hills (4-1).
