Seniors Madison Woodmansee and Travis Perry represented the SHS girls and boys bowling team last weekend by qualifying for semi-state after the regional tournament on Jan. 18. Woodmansee bowled a total of 562 while Perry bowled a total of 561 after three games in the singles ladder. 

Going into regionals, Woodmansee had only qualified by three pins. She started off the sectional tournament slowly but got into a groove in her second game. Regionals was a different story.

Woodmansee started the day off strong by knocking down 178 pins in her first game. In nine out of ten frames of the first game, she either scored a spare or a strike. Perry also started off the same way, scoring 179 pins.

The second game only saw improvements from both players. Woodmansee scored a 193 with five strikes and four spares. Perry scored 209 with two strikes in his final frame. 

The third and final game saw consistency. Woodmansee continued scoring high with a 193 and three strikes in the tenth frame. However, Perry dipped a little and scored a 173.

Through their fantastic performance at sectionals, Woodmansee and Perry qualified for the semi-state tournament scheduled for Jan. 25 in Kokomo.
