KENNER – Archbishop Chapelle started fast and went on to a 21-6 victory over Cabrini on Monday at AMF All Star Lanes.

The Chipmunks, the New Orleans region’s only remaining unbeaten at 5-0, won seven of eight points in the opening game and used nine bowlers for two games each.

Olivia Bares had a 188 opening game and Elizabeth Hamilton had games of 182 and 184 to lead Chapelle, which was third in Monday’s release of the LHSAA unofficial power rankings.

Jennifer Luna’s middle-game 197 was the best of the day for the Crescents (1-2).

The teams meet again Thursday at AMF.

Albany 14, Academy of Our Lady 13: In a match as tight as the final suggested, the Hornets made the trip down from the Hammond region to defeat the Penguins at AMF.

The teams split six individual matches in each of the three games, but Albany took a 78-pin lead in total pins and was able to maintain it throughout, capturing the three-point “super total” that decided the match 2,487-2,463.

No. 6 bowler McKinzie Novak had an opening game 188 to pace Albany, but AOL anchor Laney Sasso got some revenge by winning the final two games in Monday’s head-to-head matchup. Novak eliminated Sasso from Sunday’s under-18 girls bracket in the Louisiana Grand Prix tournament.

Sasso had a 191 final game and a 509 series to lead AOL (3-2).

Albany (4-0) entered Monday as the top-ranked team in the unofficial LHSAA power rankings.
