Fairport Harding falls to Coldwater, earns runner-up in Division II boys state bowling championship

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Six years ago, the Fairport Harding boys bowling team lost to the Coldwater Cavaliers in the first round of the Division II OHSAA state championship.

Six years later the Skippers faced the Cavaliers again, but this time for the title. The Skippers didn’t snag their first state championship Friday, losing to the Cavaliers in a 3-0 series. With the win, Coldwater achieved its fourth state championship in program history.
