Congratulations to the 2017-2018 NLL CHAMPION bowling team! This season was extremely successful for the Panther bowlers, finishing the regular season 9-1, suffering their only loss to Napoleon by a mere 85 pins. With many returners from the 2017 team who finished as league runner-up, there were high expectations placed on the team and they met every one as they dominated the league. The team recorded five of the top eight team games – including the league’s best 1,120 – and five of the eight best Baker series including the league high 2,748. Alex Burton rolled the season high league game of 279 and series of 534 and had the second highest qualifying average. Chris Becker added the fifth high game of 268 and sixth high series of 468. Burton and Keaton Beaverson were both top five in league averages with Beaverson recording the most games of all NLL bowlers. Congratulations also go out to seniors Alex Burton and Keaton Beaverson for being honored as First Team All-NLL. Beaverson and Burton were both Second Team honorees in the 2016-2017 season.
Just a few weeks ago the Maumee Panther bowlers brought home the first NLL team championship since 2009 and first bowling championship since 1960!
