The Jasper’s girls bowling team advanced to state for the 3rd year in a row, proving to everyone that they were competitors, and were making a name for themselves in the bowling world. This year, at state on February 11, they exceeded everyone’s expectations, placing 5th with an average of 169. In order to make it to state, the team had to advance past sectionals, regionals, and semi-state, which they did with ease. The girls breezed through these competitions, coming out with both sectional and regional champion titles, and a semi-state runner-up title.
On the individual side of things, bowler Karleigh LeMond, senior, also made it to state, ending up with a 3rd place finish. LeMond was the sectional and regional individual champion, and placed second at semi-state. She has been bowling as long as she can remember, and has made it to state 4 times. “It was sentimental since it was my fourth and final time competing for an individual state championship,” expressed LeMond. Overall, it was a very successful season for the Jasper girl’s bowling team, and the day of the state competition was eventful and successful.
