FMCC bowlers finish fourth
SOUTH GLENS FALLS — The Fulton-Montgomery Community College men’s bowling team concluded its regular-season conference schedule Tuesday at Kingpin’s Alley, finishing fourth overall.
In the first match, FMCC was paced by Brendan McGillin of Amsterdam. McGillin posted high games of 240 and 224 for a three-game total of 663. Other high scores for the Raiders were 211 by Anthony Miller, 204 for Seth Weeden, Lane Daley posted a 160, and Leland VanValkenburg with a 134.
In the second match, Miller led the FMCC squad with high games of 234, and 227 for a three-game total of 645. Daley, the team captain, was close behind with a total of 627, with a high game of 223. Weeden had a high game of 202 and a 575 total. McGillin had a high of 190 and a 559 triple. The high game for VanValkenburg was a 148.
“I was pleased with their effort today. We pretty much knew we would finish fourth based on previous results, we were just too far behind based on previous league play to move up another spot. We were one bowler away from challenging for third place but beyond that, I think HVCC and Herkimer were just too strong this year for us to challenge them,” FMCC coach Tom Rathbun said. “We have been hitting the recruiting trail hard this year and fully expect to have full Men’s and Women’s teams next year. I want to thank my two seniors, Brendan and Anthony. We dragged Brendan out of baseball practice to bowl with us and he ended up leading our team in average. Anthony continued to improve throughout the season and was one of our best at the end. They provided fine leadership, as did our captain Lane Daley, and I wish them the best.”
