About the season,

Minster Coach Austen Vanderhors­t stated, “It was a fantastic season overall. Finishing second in the MAC is a great accomplish­ment and making it to districts as a team for the second year in a row is a great way to lead into next year. You always want to make it to state as a team but to have Xavier go is amazing as well. We’re excited to get into practice this upcoming week and work on a few things going into state. We look forward to building off the success from this year into next.”

Xavier Kitzmiller will bowl on Friday, March 1 at H.P. Lanes in Columbus going for an individual state title.
