OAK FOREST | After leading by 84 pins heading into the final game, T.F. South just couldn't hold on.

The Rebels bowled their lowest game of the day, a 759, in their sixth and final game to allow Andrew to leap frog them for the team championship at the 9th annual Bengal Bowling Invite at Oak Forest Bowl. T.F. South was second.

T.F. South's Amber Montejano (1,205) finished third in the individual standings. T.F. South sophomore Madalin Tiltges (1,104) finished seventh overall.

"We have to learn to deal with oil conditions and changing conditions," Montejano said. "I just want to do better as the season goes along, and as a senior, I think I'm doing that. We've definitely come a long way even from where we were at the beginning of the season."

Tiltges felt the team had a strong day despite some lower scores over the past few weeks.

"Today was pretty good overall," Tiltges said. "Lately, we haven't been doing so great. But today we just gelled together. We just started getting pumped up and bowling strikes. The last game was tough. We couldn't really figure out the oil patterns. It was just all over the place."

Kayla Garcia (1,042) placed 18th overall for the Rebels, and coach Bob Quayle said he was happy with the team's performance despite the last game letdown.

"All year in tournaments we've been hanging around in the middle of the field," Quayle said. "It just wasn't meant to be in the last game. It was uncharted territory for these girls, being out front like that. We'll learn from this. We'll finish better next time."

T.F. North (4,751) continued an up-and-down season and finished in 10th place in the team standings. Crete-Monee (3,789) finished 16th. T.F. North's Brianna Montgomery (1,030) placed 22nd and is seeing improvement in her game as the season progresses.

"I did better than any of my other tournaments," Montgomery said. "I think I did pretty good, but I could have done better. I'm really happy with my scores and there's a lot of improvement, especially at practice."

T.F. North freshman Capri Howard (995) placed 30th overall and also had trouble with the changing surface of the lanes.

"This morning I did pretty well then I fell off in the afternoon," Howard said. "I think I lost my shot. The lanes changed and I didn't adjust right."
