Lincoln-Way Central senior Alex Nolan picked a good time for his best performance of the season.

Nolan totaled 1,430 pins over six games (238 average) to win his first SouthWest Suburban Conference title Saturday, Jan. 11, at Orland Bowl.

Nolan topped Bradley-Bourbonnais junior Eli Smith by 87 pins for the crown.

"It's the first tournament I've actually won this year, and it's good going into the postseason," Nolan said. "This is the best finish I've ever had at the conference. I had never taken first but got third two years ago. It feels much better to take first.
