CHS Girls Bowling Beats Denham for the Third Time this Season at Playoffs

By  | 

    Central High Girls Bowling (10-1) has quickly become one of the best teams in not only the Baton Rouge area, but in the state of Louisiana.  The 2nd Ranked Wildcats have only one senior on this year’s roster, it appears Central will be a contender for District and State titles for years to come.  After Tuesday’s (3-25-14) action in the Regionals of the LHSAA State Playoffs, the 2014 Baton Rouge District Champions showed they’re ready to make a run towards a “Final Four” appearance which would be a first in CHS’s history.  As the 1-Seed in the Baton Rouge Region, Central received a bye in Round 1 and faced 4-Time State Champion Denham Springs (4-5 and 4-Seed) in Round 2 of the LHSAA Bowling State Playoffs.
    After beating Denham twice this season (18-9 and 20-7), the Wildcats quickly wrapped up Round 2 as Central routed the Yellow Jackets 24½-2½ and 2569-2216 and extended their winning streak over the former state powerhouse to 3 matches.  Only needing 14 points to win a match, Central wrapped up the match after 2 games by winning Game 1 7½-½ (871-801) and Game 2 7-1 (869-790) and taking a 14½-1½ lead.  The Wildcats finished the match by winning Game 3 7-1 (829-625). Haley Young (Junior/Co-Captain) led all scorers with a 202 game and 517 series, followed by Sarah LeDuff (Sophomore/Co-Captain) with a 187/490 and Brittnee Robinson (Freshman) with a 431.
    Central’s winning streak is now up to 6 matches and Central now moves onto Round 3 of the Bi-Regionals next Thursday (4-3-14) at AMF All Star Lanes in Kenner, LA.
