Senior Ameer Lawrence placed 10th at the Indiana High School Bowling state championship on Saturday, Feb. 2, in Anderson with a score of 585.  This is Lawrence’s second consecutive trip to the state finals, following last year’s 4th place finish.

     After scoring well in semi-state with scores of 205, 266, and 166, he punched his ticket to be able to compete in state. “Thankfully I was able to move on to state,” said Ameer.

    Ameer placed 10th in the state tournament, giving him his second state title in back to back years. Even though he did not get as much practice as he would have liked, he is still proud he made it to state, showing him he is still doing great.

   Although this marked, Lawrence’s last state competition bowling event,  

his high school bowling career is not yet over. He has yet to participate in the all conference team.

   As for his future in bowling, Ameer may keep up with bowling recreationally, but he is still uncertain of how it will fit into his college career.

  “High school bowling was fun, but now it is time for bigger and better dreams and goals,” he said.
