Bowlers from Norwin, Penn-Trafford and Franklin Regional all bowled well but came up short of a title at the 2013 Pennsylvania State High School Bowling Championships at the 222 Dutch Lanes in Ephrata last Thursday and Friday.

Norwin's girls team missed out on the stepladder knockout rounds in the team competition by 16 pins, as they placed fifth out of 12 teams with a total of 3,870.

Taylor Trump led the Knights with a 667 series, and she was followed by Brianna Lundy (596), Brooke Lundy (534), Jules Goehring (533) and Dori Miller (440). The team combined for two Baker sets of 506 and 594 to complete their team score.

Reaching the stepladder were Hempfield, Wilson-West Lawn, Butler and Penn Manor, and Butler triumphed in the three-game final match over Hempfield, 2-1.

Trump would make her way into a stepladder tournament in the second day's singles competition, as her six-game total of 1,262 placed her third out of 24 girls. Her score placed her directly into the quarterfinals, but she was knocked off there by Aerika High of Manheim Central, 229-197.

Also in the girls singles competition was Penn-Trafford's Amanda Balas. She placed 12th with a six-game total of 1,111, which left her 77 pins out of the stepladder playoff.

In the boys competition, Franklin Regional's Harrison Thatcher placed 17th with his score of 1,149, which left him 123 pins away from the stepladder.

The individual state titles both went to western Pennsylvania bowlers, as Hempfield's Justyne Falbo took the girls title and Wilson Christian Academy's Brendan Schink won the boys crown.
