Brother Martin, Academy of Our Lady earn top seeds in New Orleans bowling regionals
Unbeaten Brother Martin and Academy of Our Lady will carry No. 1 seeds into the New Orleans bowling regional next Monday at AMF All Star Lanes in Kenner.
The Crusaders are one of five teams in the boys bracket who need just one win next week to advance to the bi-regional March 27.
Holy Cross is seeded second, Archbishop Shaw third, Jesuit fourth and Archbishop Rummel fifth on the boys side.
In 1 p.m. matches next Monday, No. 6 seed Pearl River faces No. 11 seed St. Augustine, seventh-seeded Chalmette meets No. 10 seed Holy Rosary and eighth-seeded Bonnabel matches up against No. 9 seed Salmen.
The 1 p.m. winners join the top five seeds at 3 p.m. to battle for four spots in the bi-regional, with the Bonnabel-Salmen winner facing Brother Martin, the Chalmette-Holy Rosary winner facing Holy Cross, the Pearl River-Chalmette victor taking on Shaw. Jesuit meets Rummel in the other advancing match.
Academy of Our Lady and No. 2 seed Archbishop Chapelle need just one win to advance to the bi-regional. They each bowl at 1 p.m.
At 11 a.m., No. 4 seed Chalmette meets fifth-seeded Mount Carmel for the right to advance to meet AOL, while No. 3 seed Cabrini takes on sixth-seeded Holy Rosary with the winner advancing to face Chapelle.
The losers of the 1 p.m. matches must come back at 3 p.m. to bowl for the third and final spot in the bi-regional.
Despite feedback from area coaches last year, the LHSAA’s format for the girls regional went unchanged, when a much simpler method of having six teams facing each other in one round to advance three teams could have been put in place. Instead, if seeds hold, two schools will have to bowl nine games in one day.
