BOWLING SEASON ENDS AT AHSSA REGIONAL
Hewitt-Trussville Bowling had a successful 2017-2018 season, but it came to an end on
Friday at the AHSAA North Regional Tournament. Both Hewitt teams advanced to
regionals as only 32 teams across all classifications qualified. The North Regional was
held at Leland Lanes in Tuscaloosa.
The Boys team finished qualifying as the #9 seed in the event. In the opening round, the
Huskies faced off with Hillcrest-Tuscaloosa. The Patriots picked up the win by a score of
1,311-1,271. It marked the end of a fantastic season for the Boys. The team put together
a 9-1 record to win the area.
The Girls team finished qualifying as the #12 seed in the event. In the first round the
Huskies matched up against the #5 seed Hartselle. Hewitt dropped the match by a score
of 1,147-847. The Girls team also had a great year as they finished second in the area
with a record of 8-2.
Head Bowling Coach Tommy Abney said, "We had a fantastic season. With only one
returning player from the Boys and no returning players on the Girls side, the Boys won
the area and the Girls finished second. Our Senior leadership played a large role in our
success. The players were an absolute joy to work with and we had great parental
support. Unfortunately, we fell short in regional play. I am looking forward to next season.
