Kegler's Korner: TH bowlers hold their own with best in Indiana at Women’s State

The Greater Terre Haute USBC Women’s Bowling Association doesn’t have many names on the leaderboard among the top 5 in various categories of this year’s 82nd Women’s State Championship Tournament.

But they certainly do have quality in the event being contested this year in Indianapolis.

Jacinda Tucker leads both the Singles and All Events in Division 2 (150-and-under average, handicap) through the weekend of April 5. Tucker has a score of 763 in Singles and 2,240 in All-Events.

Three other bowlers were among the top five through the weekend of March 29. But all three dropped out of the top five the weekend ending April 5.

Samantha Nichols-Christa Pierce was fifth in Doubles Division 2 (300-and-under average, handicap) with a score of 1,405. Cindy Schmitz was fifth in Singles Division 1 (151 to 190 average, handicap) with a score of 722.

By the way, entries continue to decline in the state tournament with just 677 entries this year, down from 765 in 2009.

Next year’s state women’s tournament is in Muncie, then will return to Terre Haute in 2011.
