Senior Chris Ainsworth had a 608 series with a 235 game. Junior Peyton Hidalgo finished with a 607 series with a solid 222 game.
“The entire regular season is all about preparing for the playoffs,” said coach John Prejean. “If Monday was any indication of how Jesuit will bowl throughout the playoffs, I like our chances.”
Three Blue Jays were named to All-District teams, recognizing their high-average season scores: senior Ben Ainsworth, senior Jared Ohle, and junior Petyon Hidalgo.
