Kegler's Korner: High school rollers already in postseason tournament

The postseason for Indiana high school bowlers is already underway.

Terre Haute North, Terre Haute South, South Vermillion and Sullivan boys and girls teams — comprising the Blue Chip North Conference — had sectional competition on Tuesday (individual) at Clinton’s Paradise Bowl and Wednesday (team) at Sullivan Bowl.

With the individual competition staged at the “smaller” schools home venues, the individual competition was up for grabs, including an upset in the girls final.

In the sectional, the four teams bowled two regular games and five Baker games, while individuals bowled three regular games across three different pairs of lanes, to determine who advanced to Southwest Regional competition at the Terre Haute Bowling Center on Saturday.

One boys team, one girls team, plus five male individuals and five female individuals advanced.

With the same result as last year, the North boys and South girls teams earned the titles of sectional champion.

For the boys, North edged South by just 53 pins (2,913-2,860) followed by Sullivan (2,506) and South Vermillion (2,103). For the girls, South easily topped North (2,722-2,452), trailed by South Vermillion (2,373) and Sullivan (1259).

In the individual girls competition, advancing to the regional were Kara Bunting of South (638), Chelsea Maloney (611) and Tara VanBuskirk (570) of South Vermillion, Heather Breshears of North (549) and Brittany Gambill of South (541).

In the individual boys competition, advancing to the regional were Jared Norris of South (637), Allen Breshears of North (628), Jordan Stone of South (617), Caleb Unger of Sullivan (582) and Trevor Monroney of North (570).

Being the top seed, whether boy or girl, was not the position of preference in the stepladder finals utilized to determine the sectional champions.

For the girls, Breshears eliminated VanBuskirk 163-131, Maloney ousted Breshears 176-170, before Maloney topped Bunting, top seed and state singles champion in 2004, 208-202.

In the boys stepladder finals, Unger sidelined Stone 195-185, Breshears eliminated Unger in a high-scoring semifinal match, 256-233, before Breshears easily defeated top seed Norris 198-151 in the championship match.
