Alex’s Young, Tigers’ boys big winners at bowling regional

MUNCIE, Ind. — The Muncie High School Bowling Regional started off Saturday with the singles event. The boys side produced five local bowlers out of the 14 to advance to semistate. Pendleton Heights’ Matt Robey qualified 10th with a 620, and Lapel’s Connor Hickey finished sixth with a 638 series.

The step-ladder one game roll off started with No. 4-seed Dylan Holford of Pendleton Heights against No. 3-seed Craig Monroe (655) of Muncie South. Holford couldn’t get anything going as Monroe was consistently finding the pocket. Holford fell 257-154. Monroe then faced off with another Pendleton bowler, Steven Pursley (657), the No. 2 seed. Pursley bowled well with a 198, but Monroe was in the zone, bowling a 247.

Alexandria’s Mason Ward qualified as the top seed with a 703 and faced off with Monroe. The game seemed to be anyone’s as they both matched each other throughout. Ward finished first with a 202, forcing Monroe to mark in the 10th frame. Monroe answered with a spare, giving him a fill ball that produced a nine count to finish with a 205.

The girls’ side produced one local to advance, and she did it with a bang. Not only did Emily Young of Alexandria qualify, she was the top seed with a 652 series, 99 pins over the No. 2 seed. Waiting through the first two matches for her chance to claim the title, she came out strong, easily defeating her opponent, No. 2-seed Emily Cain of Knightstown, 180-153. This gave Young the title of regional champion.   

The team event was just as successful for Alexandria as the Tiger boys claimed the crown in the Muncie Regional, just as they did the sectional crown. Alexandria qualified on top with a 2,883 series after two team games and five baker games. Pendleton finished in the No. 4 spot with a 2,813. The top five teams advance to the semistate to be held at Southern Bowl in Greenwood.

The top-four team step-ladder finals pitted Pendleton Heights against No. 3 qualifier Richmond. After two baker games, Pendleton came out on top, winning 392-333. Pendleton then faced No. 2-seed Muncie South. The Arabians couldn’t put it all together, and they fell 393-332. Muncie South then faced No. 1-seed Alexandria. The wait didn’t seem to hinder the Tigers as they won both baker games to claim victory with a final of 372-325.

The Alexandria girls came away with the No. 1 seed also, shooting a 2,529 series. The Tiger girls did not fair as well as the boys and fell to No. 2-seed Wapahani, 407-337 in the finals. The top-four teams on the girls side advance.  

Those advancing will travel to Greenwood’s Southern Bowl next Saturday to do this all over again. The singles will begin at 9 a.m., with the team event scheduled for a 1 p.m. start.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Werner - 319 Werner's progress evident at Colts Camp

    Bjoern Werner's rookie training camp was rather quiet. The German-born outside linebacker went through individual drills and worked hard in full-team sessions, but he was overwhelmed by all the new information he was processing. And it was holding him back. When the season started, Werner was further set back by a foot injury that cost him three games, and he finished the year with just 2.5 sacks. Then the former Florida State star went to work.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Fleener - 206 Colts focusing on situational improvement One year ago, the focus in Indianapolis Colts training camp was on turnovers. The team had committed far too many in 2012 and was determined not to repeat its mistakes. The theme at Anderson University carried over to the field, and the Colts' 14 turnovers were the fewest in the NFL last year.
