Avon bowling team sees success

The 2013-14 season was a successful one for the Avon boys’ and girls’ bowling teams.

The boys’ team finished ninth at the state competition and junior Devin Elmlinger finished 10th in the girls’ state singles.

“I was really impressed with our team,” Avon bowling coach Eric Corbin said. “We had three or four seniors on our team, but we had a couple of freshmen and juniors who really helped out. With the level of competition over four weeks, I was proud of them and they did well. To finish ninth of all of the teams who participated was a very good accomplishment for them.”

In its sectional, Avon’s Nick Corbin bowled a 620 and Jon Elles threw a 588 to finish third and fourth in singles, respectively. Elles was the sectional champion with a score of 236.

Elmlinger won the girls’ event with a 650, and was followed by Alexis McBride (575).

The Avon boys’ team finished second in the regional to Lafayette Jefferson, with a score of 2,858. Elles finished sixth at the event with a 602.

Elmlinger won the girls’ regional, rolling a 684.

At the semi-state, the Avon boys’ team finished fourth with a team score of 3,070 — less than 100 behind winner New Castle.

Elmlinger finished second at the semi-state event with a 668. She went on to finish the state competition with a 560, in addition to carrying a 210 average.

Along with their tournament accolades, the Orioles also saw a great deal of success during the conference season.

“We were 10-0 in conference matches,” Corbin said. “This was actually the second year in a row that we went undefeated. To me, that was a big accomplishment for the kids.”

Corbin said the team’s success shows a lot about the players.

“I’ve had some kids that were struggling at first, but from one year to the next they improved because they bowled a lot over the summer and practiced quite a bit,” Corbin said. “If you look at their two game averages, most of them had improved quite a bit. That says a lot about their dedication and getting after it and practicing on their own.”

He said he’s excited about the future of the program, especially with a young core returning.

“I have four of my younger bowlers coming back next year,” Corbin said. “I’ll have to recruit a couple of bowlers to fill the team back up, but I don’t think that will be much if an issue.”
