Perry Leads Trailblazers at Boilermaker Classic

West Lafayette, IN – Tyler Perry finished 2nd overall on the All-Tournament team to lead the Trailblazers to a 5th place finish out of 20 teams at the Boilermaker Classic hosted by Purdue University this weekend.

Head Bowling Coach Gary Sparks said after the tournament, “Overall I was pleased with our start, especially the 2nd day.  We started out the first day much like we have in the past, struggling on our ‘fresh’ lane conditions.  After the lanes transition we got more into our comfort zone and did better.  The players did a better job of that on Sunday and we pulled up from our 9th position after Saturday into the top 5 for the tournament. “ 

Perry knocked down an impressive 1,119 pins over 5 matches, for an average of 223 pins per frame. Perry also captured the high game for the Blazers with a score of 290, and the high series with a score of 715.

The rest of the Trailblazers scores were as follows:




Player                                                   Games                  Average               Total Pins

Shawn Gibson                                         5                            187                         936

Tommy Tkacz                                          5                            185                         926

Ryan Benslay                                         3                            164                          493

Tyler Lewis                                             2                            149                          299

Christian Francis (JV)                            4                             212                         848

Zach Kendrick (JV)                                4                            163                          652

Kory Harris (JV)                                     4                            150                          602

Hunter Stevens (JV)                              3                            147                          442


Coach Sparks said on the outlook of the team moving forward, “If our veteran players can improve on that, and better utilize the experience we are gaining, this team can certainly compete at the highest level.  Our ultimate goal is to get prepared through the regular season for our Intercollegiate Sectional to qualify for Collegiate Nationals.  We have a lot of learning to do but certainly have the capabilities of making it happen.  Tyler Perry started off his season with a very solid performance, finishing second on the All Tournament team, which he is very capable of doing at every tournament if he maintains his work ethic and focus from here on.”

The Vincennes University Bowling team will return to action this Saturday and Sunday at the Midwest Collegiate Bowling Tournament in Milwaukee, Wisconsin! Go VU!
