Chase County senior Cody Cochran tied for seventh place in individual standings at last week’s Class C high school state bowling in Lincoln.
Competing with five of his Chase County teammates, Cochran rolled a 492 series (114, 213, 165) to tie for seventh with Boone Central’s Spencer Noble.
That’s a move up three places for Cochran, who was 10th last year in individual standings.
Games used for individual standings were the first three of the four bowled in the state competition. Those regular games were followed by Baker’s format bowling to determine team winners.
Overall in team standings, the Chase County boys placed sixth with a pin count of 2309 (509, 626, 528, 646).
Others on the Chase County team were Indy Smith, Sam Cahow and Will Lewis. Also at the state competition as subs were Cade Francis and Allan Smith, who also bowled in the Baker’s format games.
Wayne had the top pin total in Class C with 2704, followed by North Bend with 2697. Those two teams competed Sunday to determine the state Class C winner.
North Bend was the district winner at the same district Chase County competed in at Norfolk two weeks earlier.
High school bowling teams compete in the Nebraska High School Bowling Federation established in 2002. Bowling is not an NSAA-sponsored activity.
