Three RPS bowlers advance to IHSA tournament

ROCKFORD – Bowlers from Auburn, East and Guilford advanced to next week’s IHSA bowling tournament at Cherry Bowl in Cherry Valley.

Saturday’s sectional was at Don Carter Lanes in Rockford, a favorite stop for all Rockford bowlers.

Guilford senior Carrie Minnier recorded a score of 1,317 over six games – a 219.5 average – to qualify for state. Her score was just 45 pins behind Rebecca Hagerman of Harlem, who won the sectional title with a 1,362.

Minnier will be joined next week by East senior Tegan Peterson, who bowled a 1,289 Saturday, and Auburn sophomore Caitlyn Bannister, who advanced with a 1,266.
