LIMA — While Napoleon was dominating the Division II girls bowling district tournament on Thursday, Wauseon was working its way up through the field.
Tied after the six Baker games, it took a two-frame roll-off, one that Sandusky Perkins won 46-38 over Wauseon, to decide the final spot at state at the meet held at Westgate Lanes in Lima.
Napoleon opened with a 1,007 — the only 1,000-plus game rolled at the district — and cruised to a 4,122-3,901 decision over Coldwater to win the district title.
Already ahead 2,979-2,842, Napoleon led the meet with a Baker total of 1,143 to cruise to the victory.
Carlee Hohenbrink had games of 204-215-216 to finish with the second-highest total of 635. Jalin Ruple added games of 235-191-204 to finish with a 630 for third overall.
Spencer Schwaiger had a 582 series, Ella Fox rolled a 568 and Heather McMahan added a 564.
The battle for the third spot — and the final spot in the state tournament field — came down to the end. Wauseon finished with a Baker total of 1,035, but were outscored 234-196 in the final game by Perkins to finish in a tie. Playing a tiebreaker of a ninth and tenth frame, the Pirates were able to edge out the Indians for the final spot.
Wauseon was led by Quinlynn Rohda, who had games of 183-173-219 for a 575 series. She missed qualifying for state as an individual by four pins.
