Saturday, May 9, three student bowlers from Saegertown High School will travel to Hanover, Pennsylvania to compete in the Pepsi State Finals, sponsored by Pennsylvania State USBC Youth Bowling. Nick Archacki, Michael Costello, and Kylee Higby will be competing against youth bowlers from across the state to determine a winner. The bowlers are split into categories determined by their age and gender. Nick and Michael will bowl in the Under 15 boys group, and Kylee will bowl in the Under 15 girls group. Each bowler will bowl a 3-game set with handicap added to finalize their score. After every bowler has bowled, results will be posted to decide a winner.
“I’m pretty confident heading into this weekend. I feel like my game is strong, and I am going to score well,” said Archacki.
To make it to the state finals, the bowlers must qualify at their home bowling house. All three participants from Saegertown bowled at Plaza Lanes in Meadville to qualify. Archacki said, “I can’t wait to get down there and start bowling.” For more information about the tournament and results, visit bowlpa.org.
