Kegler's Korner: A little snow can’t stop bowlers from getting in their rounds

TERRE HAUTE — While a little snow has slowed down the process of playing boys and girls high school basketball games around the Wabash Valley recently, the white stuff rarely keeps bowlers from their appointed rounds.

That goes for high school bowlers as well.

The South Vermillion boys team and three area individuals advanced to yesterday’s Indiana High School Bowling semistate tournament in Richmond based on their performances at the IHSB regional at the Terre Haute Bowling Center on Feb. 6.

South Vermilion qualified for the semistate by placing fourth in the team regional with a score of 2,710. SV was nipped 335-331 by Mount Vernon in the first round of the stepladder finals.

In the individual regional, semistate qualifiers were Adam Smith of Terre Haute South, J.D. Pizzola of Terre Haute North and D.J. Wood of South Vermillion, placing third, fourth and fifth respectively. Smith had a three-game series of 621, Pizzola 616 and Wood 600.

In the stepladder finals, Smith defeated Pizzola 225-193, then eventual regional champion Dennis Lentz Jr. of Southport sidelined Smith 193-114.
