East Webster

From Press Reports

East Webster’s bowling team has definitely found its place in the
championship city.

After sweeping the regional tournament in Tupelo at Rebel Lanes, the
Wolverines were ready to take care of business in Jackson on Feb. 22
at the Class I State Bowling Tournament at Paradise Lanes.

Starting the day with the best two games of the tournament, the
Wolverines took an early lead with Brett Brock shooting the best game
at 265. The rest of the Wolverines shot above their average and that
is exactly what Coach Christian “Boo” Jones said would need to happen
to be able to defend their state championship from last year.

A year ago the Wolverines had to come back from a 2-0 deficit with
Kossuth to claim the 2012 state championship.

“We have a great bunch of kids that can focus on the task at hand and
come up with a way to conquer any obstacle that comes their way”,
said Jones.
East Webster faced East Union in the championship round and took it
all the way to the fifth game, winning 3-2. Graduating two starters,
Jones says he looks for a couple of the younger guys to fill those
shoes over the summer and come back with a strong team next year.

The Lady Wolverines barely missed the championship round, finishing
third. Jones said he is proud of the progress they have made and
looks forward to next year.
