Seymour continuing postseason push

The Seymour High School bowling team has found success in the 2017 postseason.

At the sectional, the Owls’ Colton Hayes was the boys’ singles champion.

“Colton was the only boy to move on to the regional,” Seymour coach Shannon Kelly said. “He had an exceptional day placing first after the preliminary round and then defeated Madison’s Kollier Pavey in the step-ladder round for the championship.

The top-10 boys advanced to the regional, and Seymour had bowlers in 11th, 12th and 13th positions.

In the girls’ singles competition, Seymour’s Rachel Kaufman was champion while sister Hannah Kaufman — the defending state champion — placed sixth.

“Rachel and Hannah were the only girls to advance to regional,” Kelly said. “Rachel had an exceptional day placing first after the preliminary round and then defeated Bedford’s Hailee Gabhart in the step-ladder round for the championship.

In the team competition, the Seymour boys finished in fifth with the top-3 teams moving on to the regional.

The Seymour girls finished in second place after the preliminary round. In the step ladder round they were defeated by Bedford by just four pins to finish as runner-up and advance to the regional.

At last weekend’s regional, the girls continued to impress while Hayes fell just short of advancement.

“Hayes had a rough start on Saturday’s first game, but came back with very respectable scores in his second and third games to finish 22nd out of 85 for the day,” Kelly said.
The top-15 boys advanced to semi-state.

In the team competition the Seymour girls fought their way into the semistate by finishing in third place in the preliminary round.

In the step-ladder they were defeated by Bedford who would also defeat Jasper making Bedford sectional and regional champs.

The top-10 girls advanced to the regional. Hannah Kaufman finished in seventh while Rachel just missed the cut finishing in 12th.

This Saturday, Hannah Kaufman will continue her push to defend her state title as the bowlers travel to Championship Lanes in Anderson for semi-state competition. The singles begin bowling at 9 a.m. and the team will compete at approximately 1 p.m.
