Norwin's girls bowling team made its first trip to the WPIBL championships a good one.
The Knights finished third out of 16 teams in the finals and were only outdone by champion Hempfield and runner-up Plum in the competition at West Pike Lanes in Canonsburg last Thursday.
Norwin led all teams after bowling a first game of 981, but the girls were unable to keep up that pace by finishing with 2,594 total pins. Hempfield finished with a winning score of 2,809, and Plum finished with 2,675.
Taylor Trump bowled a 577 series, including a high third game of 216, to lead the Knights. Dori Miller had the high game for any Norwin bowler, as her opening score of 222 was a key part of the Knights' early lead.
Miller finished with a series of 481, while Brianna Lundy bowled 497, Jules Goehring rolled 498, and Brooke Lundy posted the team's second-best series of 541.
Hempfield's Justyne Falbo, the WPIBL's leader in per-game average during the regular season, posted the highest series of the team championship with 634.
The Knights season continues on next month, as both the girls team and individuals from the boys and girls teams will compete in the western Pennsylvania regional competitions.
The individual regional competition is March 8 at 9 a.m., and eight Norwin bowlers will participate.
For the boys team, Reno Rainey, Jake Bobak, Christian Kolesha, Tyler Roberts and Michael Curcio have advanced to regionals, while for the girls, Trump, Brianna Lundy and Brooke Lundy will compete.
On March 9 at 9 a.m. is the team regional competition, where Norwin's girls will compete. Both regional events will be held at the North Versailles Bowl.
Teams and individuals that advance from regionals will compete in the state championships at 222 Dutch Lanes in Ephrata on March 15 and 16.
