"I am very proud of this team," Lewis coach Scott Taylor said. "We bowled very well this weekend and it showed by having the second-highest average in the field, we just bowled the wrong teams at the wrong times. It was unfortunate that we had nothing to show for how well we did bowl. This group made tremendous progress throughout the year. We were nine games under .500 at the semester and to finish above .500 with the schedule we face is a testament to the hard work they put in."
