Last Saturday, the Adamsville Lady Cardinal bowling team was defeated by Collierville High School at Sub-State held in Memphis.

“Congratulations go to the AHS Girls Bowling Team for progressing to Sub-State play against Collierville in Memphis,” said head coach Ron Christopher. “It was a very good game and as their coach I was proud of each and everyone for how they represented our school and the bowling program.”

The Lady Cardinals had strong individual performances by Amron Forsythe, Nicole Ross, and Emily Surratt, but were outmatched, 21-6, by the Lady Dragons.

Ross had a team-high single game with a 221 in AHS’s second game. Forsythe rolled a 212 and Surratt had a 209 in the Lady Cards’ final game. Forsythe led Adamsville with a team-high 544 series, and Surratt was right behind her with a 540.

Breanna Taylor, Julia Hall, Katilyn Blattler, Tiranny Petersen, Janet Beltran, and Kanesha Wright competed in the Sub-State action for Adamsville as well. Wright picked up a win with a 193 in the second game against CHS.

Adamsville was victorious in the first round of the Region 7 tournament against Brighton, but fell to Hardin County in the championship. The loss to Collierville at Sub-State finalized the Lady Cardinals’ record in the 2011-2012 season at 8-5 overall.

Forsythe’s continued success and the youth of the Lady Cardinals leads many to believe their future is bright.

“Although our dream of going to state has been stopped for the present, the door is now open for next season, losing only one player as a senior,” said Christopher. “Amron Forsythe will move on to state competition this week as an individual with the second highest average in Region 7.”
