JACKSON – East Webster’s bowling team has definitely found its place in the championship city.

After sweeping the regional tournament in Tupelo at Rebel Lanes, the Wolverines were ready to take care of business in Jackson. Starting the day with the best two games of the tournament, the Wolverines took an early lead with Brett Brock shooting the best game at 265. The rest of the Wolverines shot above their average and that is exactly what Coach Christian “Boo” Jones said would need to happen to be able to defend their state championship from last year.

A year ago the Wolverines had to come back from a 2-0 deficit with Kossuth to claim the 2012 state championship.

“We have a great bunch of kids that can focus on the task at hand and come up with a way to conquer any obstacle that comes their way,” Jones said.

East Webster faced East Union in the championship round and took it all the way to the fifth game winning 3-2. Graduating two starters, Jones says he looks for a couple of the younger guys to fill those shoes over the summer and come back with a strong team next year.

The Lady Wolverines barely missed the championship round finishing third. Jones said he is very proud of the progress they have made and looks forward to next year.
