High school bowling season is winding down. Here is a look at where teams stand.

Less than two weeks of the high school bowling regular season remain and it’s really intriguing how these new 16-team only boys/coed brackets are finally going to shakeout.

Then, after that question comes how will coaches manage their rosters down the stretch to make sure the bowlers they want or better yet, how many of their bowlers they can get, to make the cut for singles. It was confirmed on Monday that 21 games will be needed to be eligible for the singles competition.

It appears the boys average cut number will be above last year, maybe by a significant amount, while the girls cut number may be much lower this season.

The power rankings are still making it a little difficult to handicap with Captain Shreve (10-1, 13.82) and Airline (13.56, 8-1) from Northwest Louisiana in the first two spots in the Division I, Class 5A division. The pair have split their two matches giving each team their won lost. Again though, with a comparison of averages, it is difficult on paper to see either team making a four-match run against some of these teams. I reiterate on paper is a little different than actually throwing the ball down the lane.

Jesuit and Rummel have big matches to finish as the week begins with Jesuit at 8-0 and 13.50 in third and Rummel in fourth at 7-1 and the other team over 13 on the power rankings at 13.31. Alexandria Senior Ash is fifth and undefeated at 9-0 and 12.78.

Denham Springs is sixth with multiple defending champion Brother Martin, with some key NOLA matches to bowl, in ninth and East Ascension 10th.

As long as Brother Martin makes the top 16 which they will, they are the team that must be reckoned with as the playoffs begin later in the month.

In Division II, Class 4A and below, Archbishop Shaw may be the class of both boys’ divisions with a 13.89 ranking and a perfect 9-0 season to date. University High is second, but at 6-0 still has matches to go. South Terrebonne is third at 10-0 with David Thibodaux and Patrick Taylor both at 8-0. Belaire is hanging in the top 16 in eighth with Albany in tenth.

Notably in the top division, Catholic High (17th) and Dutchtown (23rd) are outside that 16th place cut in the 5A Division.

The girls power rankings feature five undefeated teams with H. L. Bourgeois (8-0) followed by defending champion Dutchtown (8-0), Albany (9-0), Archbishop Chapelle (8-0) and Central Lafourche (7-0). Again, on paper it may be a difficult run to a title for HLB and Central Lafourche against teams for example, like Dutchtown and Chapelle.

Five Baton Rouge boys have 200 averages entering play on Monday but the top two, both from Dutchtown, have only bowled a combined 19 games. Preston West is averaging 242.89 while Braiden Torres is at 220.60. John Cador of Woodlawn has bowled 19 games himself and is at 217.05. Chase Cagnolatti of St. Amant) is at 212.71 (21 games) and Brady Null of Denham Springs 206.67 for 15 games.

In the girls division, Sydney Lee of Dutchtown is at 214.67 with Jordan Wingerter of St. Joseph’s Academy at 200.54. Caroline Engeron of Albany in the Hammond region is at 207.30.

Can’t make anything official just yet, but these last two weeks are going to answer a lot of questions that will make for some interesting conversation as we go forward.

Bayou Senate Event

The Bayou Senate of The National Bowling Association (TNBA) recently had their Winter Rumble Handicap event with a $1,000 top prize and Kolby Lemon posted a strong five-game total of 1,300 to win by 80 pins. Lemon, a 150 average entrant, has a 215 game two and a 218 game five to help his score.

Justin Stewart took second at 1,220 with Sarah Broussard third (1,213) and Bailee Chapman fourth (1,209). Darren Broussard wrapped up the top five at 1,193.

Youth State

The Youth State tournament is going on in Kenner and in the scratch all-events in a tournament with so many divisions to keep up with, Beau Senior of Slidell is the top in the scratch all-events Division I at 1,990. River Ridge’s Carter Santangelo is the leader in Division II at 2,069.

Jordan Wingerter in the top girl’s division is the scratch leader at 1,967, just ahead of Sydney Lee 1,957 with Caroline Engeron third (1,876) in the race to the top among the area’s top bowlers.

We’ll have the playoff pairings and final seedings when we join you again on March 19. Until then, good luck and good bowling.
