On the girls side, Chesterton finished third but did qualify for Saturday’s Regional at Heritage Lanes in Kokomo.

In the singles event, Chesterton’s Jimmy Hampton entered as the fourth seed and picked up wins over Michigan City’s Chris Wilson (198-195) and LaPorte’s Cordell Moyer to reach the Finals.

In the finals, after a slow start, Hampton ran off five consecutive strikes to beat top-seeded Adam Armstrong of Michigan City and win the individual Sectional title.

On the girls side of singles competition, Alyssa McCall entered as the second seed, but dropped a 226-189 decision to LaPorte’s Alyssa Foster. McCall did earn a berth in the Kokomo Regional.
