Girls Individual | Girls Team | Boys Individual | Boys Team

LANCASTER, Ohio -- First-time champions were crowned in both girls and boys competition, as Pemberville Eastwood took home the girls title Friday and Springfield Kenton Ridge the boys honors Saturday.

Eastwood, a first-time state qualifier, rallied back from a 2-0 deficit in the best-of-five Baker score finals against Troy, which had reached the final match for the first time and was the top-seeded team in the qualifying round.

Troy’s Alicia Benson was the top individual, rolling a three-game score of 608 to best Eastwood’s Carrie Lorenzen (601). Benson’s teammate Alicia Simpson finished in fifth (594).

Kenton Ridge was the top-seeded boys team, and after needing five games to knock off Beavercreek in the semifinals, took down second-seed Kettering Fairmont 3-1 in the championships.

Chase Carter from Riverside Stebbins won the individual crown with a score of 723, while North Ridgeville’s Justin Harnden (717) and Canfield’s Jeremy Hammond (715) were second and third, respectively.
