Avon bowling team rises to quick heights

AVON — In only its first year as a gender separated sport, the Avon bowling teams enjoyed great success.

The girls’ team made it to the state finals, while the boys went to regionals.

“This was the first year that we had the two teams that are separated,” Avon bowling coach Eric Corbin said. “We used to have a co-ed team, but this year was the first time that we had a girls’ team put together.

The Avon girls finished seventh at the state final competition with a combined score of 2,520.

Devin Elmlinger won the sectional championship with a score of 587. Tierra Tucker, Anna Elrod, and Alexis McBride finished fourth, fifth, and sixth respectively.

“It was a great experience (to go to the state finals),” Corbin said. “Two of girls (Elmlinger and Elrod) have bowled with me the last year or two on the coed team. The other four girls are brand new bowlers, new girls to the team. It was pretty exciting from the aspect of doing as well as they did.”

Avon’s Nick Corbin made it all the way to the single state finals, where he finished 13th and tallied a 577.

Corbin also won his regional, rolling a 686 and finished third at sectionals (614).

The Avon boys’ team finished second in its regional with a combined score of 2728.

The girls’ team consisted of three seniors, two sophomores, and a freshman. For Corbin, the excitement around the program will hopefully provide some new faces next season.

“With the two or three girls who left as seniors, we’re trying to recruit some more girls throughout the high school to keep that team going into next year,” Corbin said. “It worked out really well, because the boys’ team is growing too. We have more and more bowlers wanting to come and try out. Next year will be interesting because of the number of bowlers who are interested in the sport now.”
