Terre Haute South boys take hotly-contested sectional

TERRE HAUTE — The Terre Haute South boys team waited until its seventh and final game to overcome Terre Haute North’s boys 3,012 to 2,977 to win their Indiana high school team sectional championship Monday at the Terre Haute Bowling Center.

In fact, the competition was hotly-contested for all four teams involved, including South Vermillion (third place with 2,912) and Sullivan (fourth place with 2,797).

After two games, North actually led South by 112 pins. But South gradually crept closer and emerged victorious when it counted most.

The girls team sectional was not nearly as tight, with Terre Haute North (2,483) leading from the get-go to easily top Terre Haute South (2,221) for the championship, followed by South Vermillion (2,169) and Sullivan (1,027).

The South boys and the North girls are the lone teams advancing on to Saturday’s 9 a.m. (CST) team regional at Eastown Recreation Center in Jasper.


On Wednesday, the same four teams competed as individuals in the Individual sectional at Imperial Lanes. Both the boys and girls events played similarly, with the second-high qualifier emerging as sectional champion.

Scott Higginbotham of Terre Haute North was boys sectional champion, while Chelsea Maloney of South Vermillion was girls sectional champion.

All the top five boys and girls advanced to this Saturday’s regional, at 2 p.m. (CST) also at Jasper. The top four boys and girls determined the sectional champion in a stepladder finals.

The top five finalists in the boys competition were Billy Horning (THN, 781 three-game series), Higginbotham (THN, 635), Ian Huffington (THS, 626), Jordan Stone (THS, 622) and Trevor Monroney (THN, 601).

In their stepladder finals, Stone eliminated Huffington 167-156, before Higginbotham sidelined Stone 191-188, before topping Horning 233-204 in a high-scoring title game.

The top five girls finalists were Kristin Zellars (THN, 523), Maloney (SV, 520), Heather Breshears (THN, 511), Tabitha Dixon (THN, 496) and Heather Houston (SV, 493).

In their stepladder finals, Dixon topped Breshears 202-130, prior to Maloney defeating Dixon 172-168 then Zellars 184-154 for the championship.
