McGuire elevates Pickerington Central boys squad

Pickerington Central bowling coaches are thrilled with the contributions of first-year competitor Nick McGuire, whose addition helped the boys team clinch the program’s first league championship.

The sport itself has brought McGuire something more intangible.

Seeking a release from what he described as school-related depression and anxiety, McGuire, a junior, was convinced by friends at Grace Fellowship Church — including Central bowler Alex Bookman — to give bowling a try. Having competed only occasionally and on a recreational basis, McGuire became a key in the Tigers’ successful regular season.

His average of 189.2 pins per game – including a high game of 244 and team-best series of 458 – was second on the team through 10 matches to Myles Etherington’s 190.2. Central finished 11-0 overall, 10-0 in the COHSBC-C Division and 6-0 in the OCC-Central with a 2,207-1,880 win over Reynoldsburg on Feb. 15.
