The French Settlement Lions took a 27-0 victory in their first scrimmage against the Donaldsonville High School Tigers on Wednesday the 4th. This was a big step for the Lions bowling program since it was their first match in school history.

Byron Baxter was able to keep a comfortable 20+ pin lead over his opponent for the 3 game series.


Paige Fennell improved 10 pins in the second game and was substituted by Bradley Boeneke to finish out the 3rd game with a 93. 


Ronald Williams of the Tigers narrowed the gap against Bradley Bergeron in game 2 and missed the game point by only 3 pins. 


Overall pinfall for the Lions was 2261 against the Tiger's 1085 giving the Lions the bonus 3 points at the end of the series. 

Lions Head Coach, Erik Willie was extremely proud of his teams performance. 

"We've been practicing since the start of school and today showcased the work they've been putting in. This is just the start, and there is still room for improvement, but I'm so excited for these kids to be the pioneers of something new here at French Settlement."


The next match-up for FSHS will be their first regular season game against Madison Prep at Premier Lanes in Gonzales on Wednesday, January 17th at 3pm. Spectators are welcome at $5 each, or contact Erik Willie for information on discounted season passes for all matches at
