New format highlights CVAC bowling season

Editor’s note: Coaching forms were not received from AuSable Valley and Willsboro in time for the preview.

Champlain Valley Athletic Conference bowling will take on a new look this season.

In the old format, handicap scores were used during the regular season and scratch scores in the Section VII Championships.

The new format will have scratch scores used in both regular season and sectional play, giving the obvious advantage to teams with the better average bowlers.

The Beekmantown boys return as both league and sectional champions, while the Northeastern Clinton girls won the CVAC title and the Beekmantown girls the sectional crown a year ago.

Beekmantown

Boys

The Eagles, after cleaning up on league and sectional honors a season ago, are poised for another title run.

Experience won’t be a problem as Beekmantown brings back nine starters off last year’s squad, including Matt Corrow, Austin Delisle, Ryan Douglas, Matt Dwyer, Ryan Munson, Andrew Roberts, James St. Denis, Dennon Walantus and Cody Watts. Returner Andrew Baker is a projected starter.

Girls

The Eagles lost out to Northeastern Clinton in the CVAC standings before winning the sectional crown.

Beekmantown returns three of its five starters in Taylor Lavalley, Paedyn Mattioli and Harley Wells. Alyza Agoney and Sabrina Manning are projected starters.
