One Columbus High bowler and two from Lakeview, along with three area teams, have qualified for the state tournament.
Discoverers sophomore Gavin Unger finished in fifth place in yesterday’s A-6 district in Grand Island. He rolled a 540 series to secure the final state qualifying spot from that district. As a team, the CHS boys placed second behind Grand Island. The Columbus girls finished fifth as a team with no state qualifiers.
Lakeview freshman Daniel Borgman was the B-4 district champion with a 549 series at Westbrook Lanes. His senior teammate Trenton Ditter took fourth place with a 489 series to make state for the second straight year. The Vikings girls finished in fourth place with no Lakeview bowlers in the top five needed to earn a trip to the state.
The state singles bowling tournament is next Wednesday at Sun Valley Lanes in Lincoln.
Also yesterday, the Humphrey/Lindsay Holy Family boys and girls, as well as the Howells-Dodge girls, qualified for the Class B state team championships next Tuesday. The Bulldogs boys and girls both topped the B-4 district team standings and the Jaguars girls took second.
