Gill finished his six-game qualifying block with a 1,221 output, leaving him eighth out of the 59-bowler field assembled. His effort featured a 165, a 192, a 216,

a 233, a 237 and a 178.

That landed him a spot in the match play portion of the event, reserved for those bowlers with the 16 best totals.

It was there Gill faced Hemlock's Anthony Rios. Their two-game clash drew to a close with the Imlay City bowler prevailing via a 413-339 count.

Their battle drew to a close with Eckler, the eventual state champion, posting a 362-339 victory.

Miles Stanis, of Capac, also competed at the state finals. Stanis rolled a 1,039 output (consisting of games of 171, 166, 149, 210, 156 and 187) en route to a 46th.
