The girls finished up the regular season today against St. Jospeh’s at Circle Bowl.
Game one saw the Jackets jump out to an early 7.5-0.5 lead despite an average performance across the board. Layla Legendre led the team with a 187. Game two saw a little fire come out as Lakin Fletcher picked up the pace with a 188 and Ann Savignol bowled her highest game ever with a 174. The lead swelled to 13.5-2.5 after the second game. The third game saw the low lane really take off with Briana Daigle posting a 143, Angel Beadle posting a 123 and Ann Savignol continuing her streak with a 147. The girls took 4 games in the head to head matchups for game 3 and total pins.
The final score was 22.5-4.5
The win likely solidified a post season berth for the Jackets as they are nearly a full point ahead of teams below the 16 mark (as of 2/25). They were ranked #13 prior to closing out the season with two wins. The girls team will await the post-season brackets to see where they will end up. The Top 16 teams make the playoffs.
Layla Legendre led the girls with a 503 (187)
The boys team was playing in their second to last match of the regular season. Game one saw the Jackets start their top 6 and easily cover the 8 points by an average of over 50 pins per matchup. Mason Brock started off his quest for 600 on the right foot with a 212. The team led total pins by 318 allowing for liberal substitutions throughout the match. Game two saw Cade Fletcher get off to a hot start with eight strikes in a row to finish with a 253. The team lost a point in the second game to end the game up 13-1. Game three saw Quincy Brown finish off one of his strongest sets of the season with a 183 and a 532 series. Gabe Eunice collected the lone 200 in game 3 with a 210. The match final score was 26-1.
Cade Fletcher led the boys team with a 611 (253).
The boys will finish the season at Zachary (Circle Bowl) and await their playoff fate as well.
There was some interest yesterday in what it will take to make the state singles finals for boys and girls.
Last season a 153 average made the state singles tournament for the girls.
Last season a 179 average made the state singles tournament for the boys.
We have two boys and two girls that are near locks to make the singles tournament. We have a boy within a few pins of last years cut and a girl that is sitting about six back. Obviously the cut mark can change from year to year. Good luck to everyone in play here and heres hoping to getting six Jackets in and bringing home a couple of singles state titles.
