Tourney time for high school bowlers

Hello bowling fans! This is Jim Ephlin, at the Rushville Bowl, where all the action is.

The 2013-14 high school bowling season has finished conference play. Both teams finished in the upper half of the standings in Mid Indiana Conference. The girls team finished fourth with a 5-4 record while the boys finished up third with a record of 10-3.

On the boys side, Patrick Duffy had high game of 289 which was third best in the state and J.T. Ephlin had a 530 series which was sixth best in the state. J.T. made the all-conference team with a 201.5 average for 26 games in five different centers. Both teams now start their journey into the state tournament.

The sectional is to be held at Plaza Lanes in Connersville today and Saturday. Today, all our bowlers will be in singles competition bowling three games trying to qualify for the regional. Girls will have to finish in the top 11 to make the regional while the top 15 boys scores will qualify. Saturday, both teams will head back to Connersville for the team portion of the sectional. Teams will bowl two traditional games and then five Baker games to get their final score. The top three girls teams and top four boys teams will advance to regional competition in Richmond the following weekend.

Boys team coached by Robert Jacobs includes Dylan Beard, Mitchell Wagoner, Patrick Duffy, Dylan Kennedy, Nick Hutchinson, Michael Dodge and J.T. Ephlin. The girls are coached by Jay Fields and Greg Gilbert assisted by Lisa Rains. Haylee Rains, Brandi Graham, Lexie Jones, Kiersten Fowler, Megyn Kirchoff and Morgan Hatten make up the girls squad.

The Rushville USBC BA is currently planning its annual championships. Entry blanks are available at the center and there is a Feb. 1 deadline for entry at regular price. Bowlers who are late can still enter until Saturday, Feb. 8, but will be charged a $3 per person per event late fee. There will be two new exciting side pots this year with the introduction of 30 clean and 3 - 6 - 9. In the 30 clean pot, a bowler would have to have no open frames in a three game event to claim his share of the pot. In 3 - 6 - 9, bowlers would be required to record a strike in the third, sixth and ninth frames in all three games of the event.

Last call for any youth bowlers to join our 8 for 8 program that bowl on Sundays at 2 p.m. It is self descriptive as it is eight weeks of bowling for only $8 per week and upon completion the kids get a brand new bowling ball. You can call the center, sign up at www.RushvilleBowl.com or just show up on Sunday.

See you soon!
