— Senior Chase Taylor medaled with a fifth-place finish, and the Free State High boys bowling team advanced to the Class 6A state competition by placing third on Wednesday at Little Apple Lanes.

The Firebirds girls placed seventh.

Congrats Free State boys. That's the way to throw when it counts. Good luck in Wichita next week.

The Taylor kid has shot big a couple of times already this year. It will be interesting to see if he can focus at state. Too bad that Austin couldn't keep his hot streak going. Good luck to all of the bowlers next week.

Sounds like a couple of spares here or there and it could have been LHS instead of Free State moving forward. You've got to wonder if it isn't a matter of kids being able to throw great at Royal Crest but struggle away from home. The LHS girls had been on a hot streak too, but only two of them qualified also. It's just one of those games, some days they are falling and some days they aren't You have to know how to adjust and get through on those days when what normally works isn't.
