High school bowlers shine

Two local high school teams fared well in the state tournament last weekend at Super Bowl in Erlanger. The West Jessamine boys finished second to Manuel. West Jessamine fell in the fifth and deciding Baker game 257-255.

The Lexington Catholic girls took third place, losing to eventual champion Pleasure Ridge Park. Brandon Hatton of Winchester, who bowls in the youth program at Eastland, finished second in singles. It was the best showing local high school bowlers have made in the event.
