Area bowlers place well in state finals

LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Local high school bowling was well represented from the area in the state finals at Lafayette on Saturday.

After a very long month with weekend after weekend of frayed nerves and queasy stomachs with some very talented completion, everything came to a head at the state finals this weekend.

The White River Valley I conference produced 2 teams and 3 individual bowlers.

The Alexandria girls team qualified fourth in the tourney with a 2,580 series. Alexandria was in eighth position after two team games and battled back throughout the five baker games to jump into the final spot for the stepladder finals.

In the first head-to-head match, Alexandria beat No. 3 seed Portage.

The Tigers wavered in the second match to fall against No. 2 seed Boone Grove for a third place finish. The Lady Tigers are Emily Young, Alexus Thompson, Ashley Willey, Mikaela Hiatt, Cheryl Redding, McKenzie Starr and Kasey Carney.

In the individual section of the tournament, senior Matt Robey of Pendleton finished 24th in the state, a solid ending to his high school bowling career.

Alexandria junior Mason Ward had a seventh place finish with hopes of returning next year. This was Ward’s second appearance in as many years at the state level.

Emily Young, a freshman from Alexandria, was the only local female competitor to make it to the state level. Young finished in the 13th position as a rookie in the state finals. Experience definitely comes into play at this stage and that was the one thing Young couldn’t practice.

The Pendleton boys team ended its season 11th in the state. Team members are Matt Robey, Steven Pursley, Cody Flatford, Nathaniel Cardwell, Dylan Holford, Levi Bennett and Johnny Ginder.
