Corbin falls to East Jessamine in semis

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

CORBIN — The KHSAA 13th Region Bowling tournament was held at Corbin’s Forest Bowling Lanes this past weekend with local teams faring well, but unable to bring home the big prize in the event.

As for the team competition, the Corbin boys’ teams advanced to the semifinals of the 12-team tournament before being eliminated by the eventual winner, Montgomery County.

The Redhounds got past local rival Lynn Camp in the first round with a 3-0 sweep. Corbin moved on to face East Jessamine in the second round and was pushed to the limit before coming away with a 3-2 victory, but that’s when the Redhounds ran into trouble.

Montgomery County, the team that went on to win the region title, used a 3-1 effort to eliminate the host Redhounds.

On the girls’ side of things, Corbin was knocked out of contention early after a 3-1 first-round loss to George Rogers Clark.

Lynn Camp’s girls team got past Madison Central (3-1) in the opening round of play, but fell to eventual champion Fleming County by a score of 3-2.

As for individual competition, Corbin’s Zack Waltz brought home a fifth place finish in the overall scores, while Lynn Camp’s Austin Withrow finished seventh.

Corbin’s Josh Giles (10th), Brian Nantz (19th) and Matthew Brown (24th) all finished in the top 25 in the individual scores.

The local girls didn’t fare quite as well in the individual scoring, though Lynn Camp’s Carlee Cornett was good enough for a 7th place finish.

Corbin’s Margi Patel finished 31st, Whitney Hopper was 32nd, Amber Bodary was 41st and Savannah Sullivan came in 43rd.
