Armstrong's first high school bowling season concluded with a pair of top-10 finishes.

Jared Shaner placed sixth in the singles event, and Armstrong's boys team was seventh in the team event at the Pennsylvania state championships, which were held Friday and Saturday at North Versailles Bowling Center.

Shaner, a junior from Ford City, missed the cut for the five-man stepladder final by just seven pins. He finished the qualifying round with a six-game total of 1,191. Hempfield's Javon Trout finished atop the qualifying list and won the championship match of the stepladder to earn the state title.
