Lynchburg-Clay Girls Bowling Team Finishes 3rd at Sectionals

Lynchburg-Clay girls bowling team finish 3rd at sectionals to qualify for district tournament


The Lynchburg-Clay girls bowling team made a strong comeback after a very rough start at the 20 team sectional tournament on Friday at Shawnee Lanes in Chillicothe. The LC girls’ team started their state tournament run with their worst performance of the year. Lynchburg-Clay came into the sectional tournament bowling some of their best games of the year posting scores in the mid 700’s to low 800’s but started the sectional tournament with a disappointing 651 score and placing them in 6th place after the first regular game. The girls were able to shake off the rough start and come back with a 725 game followed by a 762 team score to place them in 3rd place after three regular games. The 762 in the third and final regular game was the 4th highest team score posted on the day and helped propel the girls’ team into one of the coveted transfer positions for next week District tournament. Lynchburg-Clay was led by Senior Taylor Mclaughlin who finished 11th overall out of over 100 girls in the tournament. Taylor posted a 133, 160, and 182 for a series total of 475. Senior Tia McConnaughey finished 18th with a 449, Senior Hannah Morgan 28th bowled a 425, Sophomore Morghan Sellman 31st 414, Sophomore Mikaela Tipton and Senior Carly Bingaman also bowled 2 games a 1 game respectively. The Lynchburg-Clay girls’ team bowled the 2nd highest 6 game baker total with a 212 in the 2nd game to highlight the day. The 6 game baker total was not quite enough to catch the 2nd place team but kept Lynchburg-Clay in the third place position giving them a chance to come back next week and try and improve on their placing.

The Lynchburg-Clay boys’ and girls’ teams are co-coached by Shawn Mclaughlin and James O’Connor, both coaches are very proud of their players and everything that the teams have accomplished this season. The teams will compete in the first ever Southern Hills Athletic Conference tournament on Monday and both coaches are hoping their teams walk away with SHAC titles. The District tournament will be held on Saturday at Shawnee Lanes in Chillicothe.
