Kegler’s Korner: Bunting, Breshears excelling in collegiate ranks

TERRE HAUTE — A pair of talented products of junior bowling programs in Terre Haute are taking their abundant bowling skills to major universities this season.

Kara Bunting, a graduate of Terre Haute South, is currently one of four freshmen on the Purdue University women’s bowling team. Bunting competed in both the Terre Haute Bowling Center and Vigo Bowl junior programs.

Meanwhile, Allen Breshears, a graduate of Terre Haute North, is a freshman on the men’s bowling team at Vincennes University. Breshears still competes in the Imperial Lanes junior program.

The Purdue women’s team started its season with a second-place performance in the Hammer Midwest Collegiate Bowling Tournament at Wauwatosa, Wis. on Oct. 7-8. In a field of 21 teams, the Boilers finished behind only last year’s national champion Lindenwood University.

According to Bunting, the Boilers were strongest in the Baker-scoring rounds. Purdue began the Baker round 365 pins behind the leader, and by the end of the round were within 80 pins.

Bunting had earlier contemplated going to Central Missouri State University — an NCAA finalist the past three seasons — but more recently opted for Purdue.

“I didn’t want to bowl at an NCAA [bowling] school … they have too many restrictions to how I can bowl,” Bunting said on Thursday. Another plus for Bunting was that CMSU was six hours away from Terre Haute, while Purdue is much, much closer.

As for being at Purdue, Bunting — who is planning to major in Law and Society with a minor in Sociology — quickly added, “I love it here.”

If Bunting wasn’t busy enough, she has also just been elected to a two-year term as President of the United States Bowling Congress Youth Association for the state of Indiana.

The next competition for Purdue will be at the Orange and Black Classic in Beavercreek, Ohio. on Oct. 21-22.
