Coaches Glenn Schmidt and Michael Schneider pose with the three finalists senior Emrel Woody, sophomore Abby Bach, and seventh grader Alex Bach.

On January 23rd, the Bowling Birds participated in the Singles Regional Tournament at Super Bowl Bellewood.

In the tournament, every team in the region brought their top four representatives and every representative bowls three seedling games. The eight representatives with the highest pin count move on to the next round.

Sophomore Abby Bach and seniors Erin Parrot and Emrel Woody from the girls team, as well as seventh-grader Alex Bach and junior Jordan Cole from the boys team placed in the top eight.

Next, the top eight players play two more games and the top four move onto the next round. Those four also get to go to state to represent the region.

Woody and Parrot had tied for fourth place with an overall score of 842 pins. They competed in a bowl off for fourth place, and the last spot to go to the State tournament.

Emrel Woody, Alex Bach, and Abby Bach each got into the top four.  

At the end of the tournament, Abby Bach placed fourth and Emrel Woody placed third in the girls division, while Alex Bach placed second in the boys.

Those three bowling birds will move on to state in February. The date is yet to be determined.
