Kegler's Korner: North’s Higginbotham qualifies for state finals

TERRE HAUTE — Scott Higginbotham made the most of a rare opportunity.

To set the scene, Terre Haute North’s Higginbotham was a second alternate for Saturday’s Richmond semistate because of his performance in last weekend’s Jasper regional in the Indiana High School Bowling state tournament.

But a qualified bowler from Evansville was unable to participate due to illness. So when Higginbotham’s name was called to fill his spot, he hit the lanes rolling.

Higginbotham parlayed his unlikely participation into a second-place semistate individual finish. That effort sends him to the IHSB state finals in Anderson this Saturday.

Higginbotham qualified fourth with a 671 three-game series. He proceeded to win a pair of matches in the stepladder finals, 225-205 and 268-214, before falling 268-225 in the championship match.

Meanwhile, Terre Haute South’s boys bowling team missed advancing to next weekend’s state finals by one spot despite a strong semistate performance.

South, after placing third in the regional with a score of 2,791, shot a much-better 3,009 to finish fifth in a 12-team field. However, the top four teams advanced to the state finals.

Meanwhile, Terre Haute North’s girls team finished 11th in their 12-team field with a score of 2,393 at the semistate. The Patriots placed fourth in last weekend’s Jasper regional with a score of 2,437.

Back to the individual semistate competition, both North’s Kristen Zellars (21st place) and South’s Jordan Stone (29th place) failed to advance to the state finals.

Stone and Zellars finished fifth in their respective divisions at the Jasper regional. Stone shot a three-game series of 657, while Zellars had 552.
