Section Three finals

2/4

Cooperstown finished its season a couple of frames early at the Section Three finals on Sunday in Syracuse. 

The Hawkeyes bowled three games before bad weather at home forced them to leave before the second round of the tournament. 

James Virtell had the high game for the Hawkeyes in the first game, with 137. Dennis Dibble led the team in the second frame with a 158. Logan Haney led the team in the third frame with a 153. 

“It was the teams first Sectional bid in three years,” Cooperstown coach Mike Donnelly said. “We now have a goal for next season to make it back to the tournament and give our best effort towards victory.”
