The Zane Trace boys bowling team reached the final four in the 28-team Baker Bash Tournament on Monday before bowing out in the semifinals.
The Pioneers survived the 10-game qualifying round in the baker game format -- one in which several players on a team bowl certain frames to produce the score of a single game. Having made it out of qualifying, they entered the stepladder portion of the tournament as the No. 8 seed. With games of 161, 195 and 232, the Pioneers won two of three games against top-seeded Northmont to reach the semifinals. There, they lost to eventual runner-up Beavercreek, and finished fourth. The tournament was won by Centerville.
Combining their talents in the team format for Zane Trace were Chase Holdren, Dakota Rinehart, Luke Mettler, Josh Harrington, Caleb Arnold and Barry Allen.
The performance followed up a 2,227 to 2,087 victory against Circleville this past weekend. Barry Allen led the Pioneers with a two-game series of 470.
The girls team from Zane Trace also defeated Circleville, 1,872 to 1,459. Cheyenne Gartin led all bowlers with a 367 series, followed by Bethany Johnson with a 358 and Jessica Hamm with a 309.
Both teams will take on Unioto at 5 p.m. Friday at Shawnee Lanes.
