Kegler's Korner: North, South also sports rivals on oiled wood

The sports rivalry between Terre Haute North and South rages each year on “land” (football, basketball, soccer, tennis, volleyball, wrestling, baseball, softball, cross country, golf, track) and even by “sea” (swimming).

In the “land” category, you have to add bowling as yet another fierce, yet at the same time, friendly rivalry.

The Patriots and Braves are joined by Sullivan and South Vermillion to form the Blue Chip North Conference (boys and girls divisions) which been competing from November through January. “Home” venues include Imperial Lanes (North), Terre Haute Bowling Center (South), Sullivan Lanes (Sullivan) and Paradise Bowl (South Vermillion).

This season, the North boys (followed by South) and South girls (followed by North) have been the leading teams.

The BCNC champions will be determined in a position round — featuring a pair of North-South clashes — on Monday at the Bowling Center.

All eight teams will compete in Indiana High School sectional play on Jan. 31 (individual competition at Paradise Bowl) and Feb. 1 (team competition at Sullivan). The top boys and girls team, plus the top five boys and girls individuals will move on to the regional round at the Bowling Center on Sat., Feb. 11.

North’s boys — coached by Phil Cooper — are deep in talent and numbers, both in scores and bowlers with seven bowlers competing quite well in Thursday’s final regular season match on Thursday.

To wit, Allen Breshears raised his season average to 225 with games of 280-258 (538 series), while Matt Fields improved to 221 with lines of 289-256 (545 series). With those series, Breshears is now second and Fields third in state rankings. Fields is tied for fourth in the state with his high game of 289.

Team-wise on Thursday, North produced the top-ranked team series (2,349) — using two different lineup combinations, plus the fifth (1,180) and sixth (1,169) best team single-game scores in the state. Their team average (1,003) is fifth best in the state.
