High school bowling is coming to a close and it has been an exciting season.
Philadelphia High School began their bowling program this year with great interest from the students. With the help of Todd Loper, Coach Zach Jones and the players have been working hard to learn the rules and techniques of bowling. Tuesday they participated in the Class I Central Regionals in Tupelo at Rebelanes against East Webster, East Side, Pontotoc, Ruleville, and McLaurin. Hope they did well and are moving on to the State Championships.
The Neshoba Central Rockets will be hosting the Class II North Regionals at Depot Bowling Saturday.
The center will open at 9 a.m. with practice for the match beginning at 10:30 a.m. The NJROTC will be presenting the colors and NC's chorus will be singing the National Anthem at 10:45 a.m. followed by the competition at 11 a.m. Along with Neshoba Central, schools competing in the Regionals are DeSoto Central, Lewisburg, Meridian, NW Rankin, Olive Branch, Starkville, and Tupelo.
All schools have a boys team competing and all but Meridian and Olive Branch have a girls team. Competition will consist of bowling 4 games with the two teams with the highest total series moving on to the Baker round to determine 1st and 2nd place. Those top two teams will continue on to the State Championships.
Please come out to show your support for the great group of young men and women of Neshoba Central and the great sport of bowling. Good Luck and Good Bowling! Go Rockets!
