The Section V Champion Penn Yan Mustangs

The Penn Yan Mustang boy's bowling squad has been one of the most dominant bowling teams in the area this season and has earned the respect of their opponents this season. They easily won the Finger Lakes East League title a couple of weeks back, outscoring every team they played. The Orange and Blue keglers featured a well balanced team of excellent bowlers.  

After capturing the league crown, the Penn Yan lanesmen set their sights on their next goa — another Section V championship.

Last Friday they realized this goal too.  The Penn Yan boy's team traveled to Gates ATF Lanes in Rochester to compete in this year's Section V tournament.  The Mustangs captured their second straight Section V Class C Crown.  The Penn Yan bowlers registered a team aggregate score of 6,226 total pins, 140 pins better than second place Newark.

The Mustangs were led by junior Dan Fox.  He registered a score of 1,389 pins in his six games.  This was the fourth highest total in all of the Section V classes. This superb effort earned Dan Fox a spot on the All-Sectional team and a chance to compete in the State Bowling tournament in Albany.

Penn Yan sophomore Anthony Ottaviano recorded 1,295 total pinson the day, second highest in class C.  Penn Yan freshman Pete Fox and junior Derrick Fleischman also bowled well to help propel Penn Yan to the coveted Sectional title.
