PH’s Robey bowls way to title

ELWOOD, Ind. — Pendleton Heights senior Matt Robey took home the top honor at the high school bowling individual sectional by climbing from fourth place in the stepladder finals to claim the championship. Robey shot a 644 series in the three-game qualifier to give him the fourth and final spot in the finals.

As the stepladder finals began, Robey defeated third seed John Stevens (662) of Anderson High 204-168. Robey won over No. 2 seed Devin Tabada (666) of Fishers 204-159, as Tabada struggled to find the pocket. Robey then faced off with the No. 1 seed, Noblesville freshman Travis Holpuch (674). Keeping the match close, Robey finished first with a 216 game forcing Holpuch to double in the 10th. Holpuch blew the rack his first ball, and faltered on the second leaving the big four to shoot a 210 and concede defeat to Robey.

Local bowlers rounding out the top 14 to advance to the Muncie regional are Mason Ward of Alexandria, Pendleton Heights’ Dylan Holford and Steven Pursley, Lapel’s Connor Hickey and Lucas Brown of Madison-Grant.

Over at Lucky Strike, the girls’ local qualifiers to advance in the top eight were Lapel’s Abby Boyer, Alexandria’s Emily Young and Savannah Pitts of Anderson High. Alexandria’s Alexus Thompson placed ninth giving her the alternate spot.

Making the stepladder finals in fourth place was Anderson Preparatory Academy’s Layna Chapman (584) along with third-place qualifier Jessy Brown (590) of Elwood. Brown defeated Chapman 148-136 in the first match. Brown then lost to No. 2 seed Olivia DeSalvo of Noblesville 187-167. DeSalvo then lost 184-167 in the championship match to No. 1 seed Aubree Trexler of Hamilton Heights.

Jessy Brown of Elwood was the mover of the day jumping from 23rd place after two games to finish in the No. 3 spot. Brown had the high game of the tournament, for both boys and girls, with a score of 299 for her third and final qualifying game.

The regional will be hosted by Clancy’s Village Bowl in Muncie on Saturday, Feb. 2. The singles event begins at 9 a.m. with the team to follow at 1 p.m.
