Hresko captures L-L girls bowling crown

Thursday, it was Kolby Bennett's time to shine. Friday, it was Allison Hresko's turn in the spotlight.

Safe to say, it was a good couple of days for Cedar Crest bowlers.

Bennett, a freshman, captured the Lancaster-Lebanon League boys bowling title on Thursday, a day before Hresko, a senior, brought home the L-L girls championship.

After qualifying as the second seed following Friday morning's first nine rounds at Dutch Lanes with an average of 219, Hresko advanced to the title match with a convincing 227-172 win over Ashley Sham of Warwick, setting up a meeting with defending champion Olivia Farwell of Elizabethtown for the championship.

There, Hresko pulled out a narrow 186-178 victory to claim the league title.

"This was my one goal this year, to finish on top in the L-L,” Hresko told Lancaster Online. “It’s amazing."

Hresko's Cedar Crest teammate, Paige Boyd, finished fourth.
