JERSEY - Jersey's High School bowling team was extremely excited to be back in action with a home match at Tri-County Bowl on Wednesday and another one at Taylorville on Monday. The bowling season had been delayed because of the COVID-19 Pandemic and Governor Pritzker/IDPH Stipulations for Region III, Jersey's region in the Restore Illinois Plan.

Jersey Bowling Coach Chris Skinner said the jubilation the bowlers felt was almost indescribable.

"It was good to see the excitement in the kids' faces bowling the last two matches," he said. "They also develop friendships with other bowlers from other communities in the matches. It is great for them to be able to see each other again."

These are the results from Wednesday against Taylorville:

Varsity boys fell to Taylorville last night - 2265 pins to 2048 pins.

The Panthers were led by Danny Towell - 576 series and Tyler Ayres - 525 series.
