Kegler's Korner: Unlike NFL, no ties on lanes

TERRE HAUTE — Take note Philadelphia Eagles quarterback — there ARE ties in regular season National Football League games, but there are NO ties in bowling.

Ryan Nichols emerged victorious and claimed the $500 first prize in the 3rd New Year’s Day Sweeper at the Terre Haute Bowling Center. But not after settling a championship match deadlock against long-time bowler Dave Paulin.

Nichols and Paulin both shot a 218 in the title tilt, forcing a 9th and 10th frame roll-off eventually won by Nichols.

Approximately 35 bowlers competed in this tournament, with the top five finals qualifiers being Paulin (1), Nichols (2), Chris Drake (3), Kyle Johnson (4) and Jason Downs (5).

In the stepladder finals, Johnson defeated Downs and Drake, before falling to Nichols in the semifinals, setting up the close championship match.

Sycamore Chevrolet was the main sponsor of this popular annual event.

It was the Terre Haute Bowling Center’s turn to host the quite-large Wabash Valley High School Traveling League’s monthly singles tournament. Boys and girls teams were competing in the fifth of six tournaments this season. A scholarship tournament will conclude the season.

Schools represented included Terre Haute North, Terre Haute South, West Vigo, Northview, North Vermillion, Riverton Parke, Rockville, Turkey Run, Sullivan and North Central.

Bowlers are placed in four divisions, with the top five in each division competing in a stepladder finals.

Earlier this season, a pair of these bowlers rolled near-perfect 299 games, Cameron Bolinger (Terre Haute South) and Caleb Bruce (Terre Haute North).

Thanks to tournament director Ronda Smith for supplying the information. Results of this tournament will be in an upcoming column.
