Troy senior Jordan Adams finishes 13th at D-I boys state bowling tournament

COLUMBUS — Troy senior Jordan Adams finished 13th in the D-I boys state bowling tournament at Wayne Webb Lanes in Columbus, earning honorable mention All-Ohio honors.

Adams rolled games of 241-181-226 for a 648 series.

“To finish my career at the state bowling tournament and finish in the top 15 is pretty amazing,” Adams said. “I am really happy about that.”

He got off to a great start in the opening game.

He struck in six of his first seven frames, then finished with four in a row in the ninth and tenth frames for a 241.

“I was using pretty much the same shot I used in practice Thursday,” Adams said. “I was dialed in from the start, but then in the second game, I started to catch some transition.”

Adams had one double in the second game and four strikes, but two open frames led to a 181.

“I had a little speed bump in the second game,” Adams said. “But, I was able to bring it back in the third game.

He came back strong in the third game.

“I knew I had to bowl well in the third game (to get in the top 15),” he said. “It was (a good way to finish). I knew it was going to be close whether I made the top 15. I am really happy that I did.”

Adams had a clean game with six strikes for a 226.

He finished the day with 20 strikes and just three opens.
