SHS bowlers capture North Regional title

February 10, 2013

TUPELO – The Starkville High School boys bowling team qualified for the State Tournament for the second-straight year by defeating Tupelo to claim the North Regional championship on Saturday.

SHS and Tupelo were locked in a 2-2 encounter until the Yellowjackets won the last game and the title.

"The boys got tremendous experience," SHS bowling coach Jim Philamlee said. "I was real pleased. They really earned it by winning three out of five (games)."

The Jackets also had to go through Neshoba Central, Northwest Rankin and Olive Branch on the way to the championship. The state is broken down into three regions (North, Central and South).

The SHS bowlers are Tyler Dawkins, Daniel Montgomery, Alex Newman, Cody Prewitt, Seth Prewitt, Nathan Smith and Hugh Stone.

Next for the Jackets will be the State Tournament at Fannin Lanes in Jackson on Feb. 22.

The SHS girls also competed in the North Regional and finished in third place. It was not good enough to advance to State.
