WATERFORD — Two brothers from Owosso High School will be competing together at the state bowling individual finals Saturday as well as the state bowling team finals today.

Seniors Braden Triggs and Alex Triggs placed fifth and eighth, respectively, at last weekend’s Division 2 regionals at Capitol Bowl in Owosso. Braden totaled 1,157 pins while Alex registered 1,128 pins.

“Braden and Alex have led in average, Braden is averaging a 215 and he was a first-team All-Flint Metro League bowler and Alex is averaging a 204 and was a second team All-Flint Metro bowler,” said Owosso boys bowling coach Tom Trecha.

Owosso, which reached the Division 2 state semifinals last season, is again competing in the Division 2 team state finals today after finishing third last week at Capitol Bowl in the regionals. Besides the two Triggs brothers, Owosso will also be featuring senior Brendan Coffman (195 average), senior Reed Scripter (195 average), senior Matt Vandermolen and sophomore Brett Czarnopys.
