Trulock claims girls title, Doucette spills 300 at UP bowling finals ISHPEMING — There were many Iron Mountain-Kingsford standouts on Saturday as high school bowling teams traveled to River Rock Lanes in Ishpeming to compete in the 2021 U.P.

Another great day yesterday at the UP Team Finals!!
The Girls team, the Boys team, and the X team all had to bowl 8 baker games, and two regular team games. The girls were in one division, and the boys (6 teams)/X teams (2 teams) were in one division.
The boys/X team division had 8 teams competing. The X team did an amazing job, and finished in 5th place, ahead of three of the boys varsity teams!!
The boys varsity team qualified in second place, and then went to match play. After just sliding by the 3rd place qualifying Ishpeming guys in the first round of brackets, we ended up falling just short of the UP Team Championship Escanaba Eskymo's in the finals. So, a runner-up finish for the guys!
The ladies qualified in first by just 16 pins shooting 2368. From there, they took on the L'anse ladies in the first round of brackets, and were able to get past them. They then went on to the finals and worked past the Eskymo ladies for the UP Team Championship!
WAY TO GO LADIES!!
Regionals take place in Ga***rd this next Friday and Saturday!
Here is a sneak peak of what we are just sending the paper from the UP Singles Tournament this last weekend!
Mountaineer Bowlers Place in UP Singles Final
Both the boys’ and girls’ Mountaineer bowling teams travelled to River Rock Lanes in Ishpeming Saturday, March 6 to compete in the 2021 UP Singles Finals. There were standouts in both divisions.
Thirty-three UP ladies began by bowling four qualifying games, with the top sixteen moving on to two-game elimination match play. The Lady Mountaineers put on an excellent display by placing five out of six bowlers in the Round of 16. Qualifying at the number 3 seed was KHS Senior Lexi Jacko, who shot a four-game score of 705. At the fourth seed was KHS Freshman Kimberley McCallister with a 668 score. Tossing a 620 and seeding sixth was big sister Jane McCallister, a KHS Senior. Rounding out the top 16 were KHS Freshman McKenna Trulock with 547 and IMHS Freshman Emily Lautzenheiser with a score of 534.
Lexi Jacko bested Ishpeming’s Lily Ulvila by 78 pins (365-287) to move on to the Round of Eight. She was joined by McKenna Trulock who edged out Emily Kayramo of L’Anse in a tight contest (312-290). The Round of Eight saw only Trulock moving on as she beat Maggie Berger of Menominee 338-288. Jacko’s 293 was a heartbreaking finish as she fell to Escanaba’s Abby Hill who shot 319.
In the Final Four match, Trulock exacted a bit of revenge by topping Escanaba’s Hill, 367-311, moving on to the finals against Freshman Elise Ketola of Westwood. In the first game, Trulock found herself ahead of Ketola by 18 pins. The Westwood bowler fashioned a 170 game, but was unable to overcome the lead. McKenna Trulock was crowned the 2021 UPBS Girls Singles Champion.
“I believe this is the first time a freshman has ever won the UP Singles title in the conference’s 27 year history,” stated conference secretary Dave Ebsch of Menominee.
On the boys’ side of the tournament, forty-six UP boys began bowling the four-game qualifying block. Eleven Mountaineers began the tournament, but only four moved on to the match play brackets. KHS Junior Andrew Morgan topped the Mountaineer qualifiers by placing third with an 896 total. Morgan’s first three games totaled 708 (237-223-248), a personal best. At fourth seed was fellow KHS Junior Marcus Doucette with a score of 881. KHS Senior Logan Galbraith was seeded in sixth with an 835 total score. The final Mountaineer bowler to make the qualifying cut was IMHS Junior Hunter Lautzenheiser at eighth seed with 817. All four bowlers averaged over 200 in qualifying, with Morgan carrying a 224 average, Doucette at 220, Galbraith with 208 and Lautzenheiser averaging 204. IMHS Junior Dakota Jaeger was just 13 pins out of the cut in 17th place.
The first round of match play found two Mountaineer bowlers advancing. Logan Galbraith topped Gaven Erickson of Escanaba 396-354 and Marcus Doucette beat fellow Eskymo Jordan Nance 420-349. The Round of Eight saw only Doucette move on. He struck repetitively, throwing 559 to the 396 score of Ishpeming’s Dawsen Emaunuelson. Doucette’s games were 259 and 300. This was Doucette’s first perfect game. Doucette’s hot hand continued into the semi-final match as he tossed 247 and 230 to end the run of top-seed Hunter Lancour of Escanaba, who shot a two game score of 384.
In the final match, Doucette’s opponent was Troy Delvaux of Escanaba. Delvaux started by firing a 268 to Doucette’s 224. Marcus came back to shoot 212 to Delvaux’s 187, but the gap was too great. Marcus Doucette claimed the UPBC Runner-Up Singles title for 2021. For the twelve games of qualifying and match play, Doucette carried an average of 231.
This marks the fourth time a perfect game has been thrown in Upper Peninsula Bowling Conference competition. Kingsford’s late Jordan Groeneveld rolled the first 300 game for the Kingsford Flivver bowling team in 2003 at Holiday Bowl in Menominee. In 2005, Mike Kulju of Ishpeming reached perfection at Country Lanes in Ishpeming. Flivver bowler Mike Wahoviak also found perfection at the UP Singles Finals in 2008 at Recreation Lanes. Iron Mountain’s Joe Tomassoni was one pin shy of perfection with 299 at Marquette’s Superior Lanes in 2010.
“I am extremely pleased with how everyone bowled today,” said head coach Pete Tomassoni. “We are reaching our peak at just the right time with Regionals right around the corner.”
This coming Saturday will find the Mountaineer bowling team travelling to Escanaba for the UP Team Finals at Bowl-A-Rama.
Here is the article that should hit the papers soon from the end of the regular season.
Mountaineer Bowlers Finish Regular Season:
The Iron Mountain Mountaineer bowling teams concluded their shortened regular season Saturday, February 27 at Dome Lanes in Marinette.
The Mountaineer men took on the Menominee Maroons on their home lanes, soundly defeating them by a score of 34-6. After splitting the Baker games and starting off tied at three points each, Iron Mountain proceeded to sweep the match play games, garnering all 12 possible points. Leading the way was junior tandem Andrew Morgan and Marcus Doucette. Morgan had a 622 series with games of 224, 199 and 199. This makes Morgan’s third 600 series in as many weeks. Doucette followed with a 572 series on games of 190, 210 and 172. Logan Galbraith added a 214 game and 515 series to the win.
Concluding the regular season, the Mountaineers saw themselves in a three-way tie for first place with the Ishpeming Hematites and Escanaba Eskymos.

Iron Mountain finished the match winning 35 points, only losing 5 points. The Mountaineer ladies swept the Baker match with stellar games of 184 and 199, then went on to win all three match play games.
Senior Lexi Jacko tossed a 534 series which included high games of 207 and 190. Freshmen Kimberley McCallister and McKenna Trulock followed with series of 450 and 436, respectively. Senior Adrienne Taylor had a high game of 173 and big sister Jane McCallister tossed a 159 game.

The Lady Mountaineers garnered top honors for high team game (774), high team series (2218), high Baker game (199) and high Baker series (383). The team series and Baker scores were all shot in the final regular-season match.
With only two teams in the “X” Division, the Mountaineer X team faced the Escanaba Eskymo X team one last time, taking 6 ½ out of a possible 40 points. Senior Nathan Arndt led the way with a 517 series, having a high game of 177.

Mountaineer Bowlers at State Finals
The Iron Mountain Mountaineer bowlers headed across the bridge Thursday, March 5 for their second trip downstate in as many weeks, this time to compete in the Division 2 State Bowling Finals at Century Bowl in Waterford, Michigan. Iron Mountain competed in all four divisions at the finals. On Friday, March 6, both the boys’ and girls’ teams bowled in the Team Event and on Saturday, March 7, Iron Mountain High School’s Zach Spera and Kingsford High School’s Hanna Bastian competed in the Singles Events.
Qualifying for the Team Event began last Friday at 8:25 am Eastern Time. The format for qualifying consisted of eight Baker games and two regular team games. The Lady Mountaineers began with hot hands, tossing Baker games of 197 and 188, leading the scoring. After moving one pair to the left and throwing games of 160 and 148, the Lady Mountaineers held on to first place with a two pin lead. Lane conditions became difficult as the tournament continued and Iron Mountain found themselves in 15th place at the end of qualifying. The top eight teams moved on to the match play portion of the tournament. “We were always chasing the changing lane conditions,” said Coach Pete Tomassoni.
After eight Baker games, the Mountaineer boys’ team found themselves in 11th place, only 16 pins from the cut. In the first team game, Hunter Lautzenheiser fired a 256 to help Iron Mountain fashion a 1031 game total, which propelled them to fourth place. An 855 team game gave the Mountaineers a 3286 qualifying total for sixth place, allowing them to move on to match play.
In the first round of match play Iron Mountain took on three-seed Owosso, shooting 1224-1158 and besting them by 66 pins to move on to the Final Four. They then were matched against two-seed Jackson Northwest where they lost by 67 pins, 1242-1309. The Mountaineers ended their season finishing third in Division 2.
Saturday found Hanna Bastian and Zach Spera back at Century Lanes for the Singles Event. Bowling again began at 8:25 am Eastern Time. The qualifying block consisted of six games, with all bowlers bowling one game, then moving one pair to the right. After two games in the girls’ division, Bastian found herself at 19th, only seven pins out of the cut with 346. A 191 and 201 game brought her to 17th place, ten pins from the cut line. The last two games gave Bastian a 1077 total for the six-game qualifying block, placing her 23rd. “Hanna did extremely well, shooting over her average and averaging 179.5 for six games,” said Coach Kevin Hanson.
In the boys’ division, Zach “Spanky” Spera fired 434 for his first two games, putting him in 4th place. A 193 and 210 put Spera at 7th place after four games. Two more games of 177 and 196 gave Spanky a total of 1210, which was good for 13th seed and the chance to bowl in match play.
After lunch, match play began. Spera, trying to throw a new ball, struggled and fell to 4th seed Braden Triggs of Owosso.
“All the kids did extremely well,” said Coach Pete Tomassoni. “The fact that we had both teams and two singles in the Finals says a lot about their dedication to our sport.”
Congratulations goes out to Hanna Bastian! She qualified 23rd in the state today at the D2 State Finals!!
Zach “Spanky” Spera on qualify 13th at State! On to Match Play!
Congratulations, girls! You may have not finished where you wanted, but you LED after the first four Baker games. You can be proud of yourselves for getting to State!

The boys were paired up against the 3rd place qualifiers from Owasso. After falling behind by 16 pins in the first baker game, they really turned it on in the second baker game, and came out of the two baker game set with a 36 pin lead! They never looked back in their one regular team game, shooting 866 to the opponents 836, and with the upset, moved on to the round of 4!!

The boys came out with hot hands for their two baker games shooting 192 and 196, and bettering their opponents by 35 pins this time.
