GREENCASTLE -- For the third year in a row, the Greencastle boys' and girls' bowling teams have dominated the field in the Putnam County Bowling Conference.

The Greencastle girls' team won the recent sectional held at Alex Alleys with Annalysse Mason, Chelsay Dickerson, April Cain and Abby Coffin.

For the boys, the Greencastle team started pulling away in the first game and never looked back, beating the runner-up South Putnam team by 300 pins. Members of the boys' team are Josh Chaney, Hayden Rogers, Jacob Ensor, Kyle Johnson, Ray Stinson and Matt Cox.

The top five male bowlers in the 2010 sectional were Matt Cox, Josh Chaney, Jacob Ensor, Ray Stinson and Josh Lady. Pictured are (from left) Ensor, Chaney, Cox and Stinson.

In the individual competition, the Greencastle boys again dominated the sectional, with Raymond Stinson taking the sectional crown. Second place went to Matt Cox, third went to Josh Lady, fourth went to Josh Chaney and fifth to Jacob Ensor.

On the girls' side, for the second time in three years a Cloverdale bowler took home top honors. Channing Peters put up a hard fought round to secure the sectional title. Second place went to April Cain of Greencastle, third went to Abby Coffin of Greencastle and fourth went to Alex Hyten of Cascade.

Stinson and Channing both had to win three games in the stepladder competition to reign as sectional champs.

The two GHS teams as well as the top five boys and top four girls will be competing at the regional level at the Terre Haute Bowling Center on Feb. 6, 2010.

Cox and Peters were honored as male and female Conference Bowlers of the Year.
