No. 2 seed Archbishop Chapelle won a pair of matches Wednesday at All Star Lanes in Baton Rouge to advance to the LHSAA girls bowling semifinals.

The Chipmunks (14-0) defeated a pair of teams from the Bayou region, Ellender 23½-3½ and South Terrebonne 25-2, to reach the semis for the first time in school history. The final two rounds are Monday at Premier Lanes in Gonzales.

Chapelle is the highest-seeded team to reach the semifinals after top-seeded Central Lafourche was eliminated by ninth-seeded Central 19-8 in the quarterfinals.

In the opening-round win over Ellender, Chapelle had a 2,984 team series led by senior Sarah Rubi’s 612 on games of 194-204-214. Madalyn Haas had a 201 middle game as part of a 582 series, while Olivia Bares had a 525 set.

Against South Terrebonne, Haas led the way with a 599 series, including games of 203 and 201. Rubi closed with a 223 as the Chips fired a 2,945 team series.

Chapelle’s toughest test yet this year will come in the semifinals against No. 3 seed and fellow unbeaten St. Amant. The Gators had a 2,907 team series in a 24-3 quarterfinal victory over Albany.

The only other New Orleans region team in the field, 2018 and 2019 champion Academy of Our Lady, lost 22-5 to Dutchtown in the first round.

Laney Sasso led 12th-seeded AOL (7-6) with a 500 series. The Penguins return their entire team for 2022.
