LAKEVILLE, Ind. (WNDU) - The LaVille Lancers bowling team is moving on to Semi-State, after a top 3 finish at the Michigan City regional over the weekend.

They were at the lanes on Monday night practicing for the farthest round the program has ever gone. The run is also quite remarkable because LaVille hasn’t fielded a bowling team in nearly a decade.

“It’s a lot”, said Paul Clayton. “I don’t think I’ve ever made it to Semi-State or State at all. This is a first for a lot of people on the team including me.”

His teammate, Ryan Riddle added “I’m excited and a little nervous. Excited because we get to to and meet new teams and try your best to advance and nervous because you have a chance to be eliminated, but even if we lose we’re all going home happy because we made it this far.”

Locally, Penn and Rochester also made it out of the Michigan City Regional. Warsaw and Jimtown also made it to Semi-State after advancing out of the Fort Wayne Regional.

The Semi-State round will be at Pro Bowl West in Fort Wayne on Saturday, Jan. 28.
