The Lady Cougar Bowling team nailed down the first ever Regional championship, earning a berth in the state finals at the end of March after a come-from behind win Sunday, March 1, at Max Bowl North in Humble. 

The girls were 6-3 and ranked second before the final round where they played #1 Santa Fe.  Santa Fe jumped out to an early lead, but they left open frames in the 8th and 9th and Samara Simpson and Lauren Lockard nailed down strikes in Cinco’s 8th and 9th frames while anchor Ameena  Rehman closed out strong for the victory title.

Other team members Alana Simpson, Isabela Robledo and Sofia Arenas contributed to the team regional championship.

The Cougar boys team faced stiff competition finishing fourth out of twelve teams at Regionals to earn a spot at the State Tournament as well.

Key bowlers were Nick Maystrick who led off the game several times with a strike. Also stepping up were Gabriel Tan and Frankie Perez, two bowlers who started the year on JV and ended it in the starting lineup varsity at Regionals.

The boys team anchor Leyton Green competed against 23 other individuals in the singles competition. Leyton’s high scores were 257 and 245, as he finished 4th and will be representing Cinco Ranch at the State Individual Tournament.
