LEADER OF LIONS
Oviedo, Rodgers leads all-area, No. 1 team
After being part of a pair of state championship teams in her first two years of high school, Oviedo senior Shauna Rodgers finished her career in style with a dual trophy hoist.
In addition to being the anchor for a Lions squad that defeated Space Coast in the state championship match, Rodgers was on fire in the state individual competition. She rolled more than 200 in 11 of her 12 games (the only game under was a respectable 194) and defeated Circle Christian’s Grace Bringham for the girls title.
Rodgers didn’t lose a match in bracket play and went to three games only once in the best-2-out-of-3 matches on her way to earning 2019 Orlando Sentinel girls bowler-of-the-year honor. 680 in district and fourth overall at state.
Sierra Poole, Lake Mary, Jr. Buzz:
One of the most consistent area bowlers over the past three years, Poole shot 888 in four games of state qualifying (third seed) with a 246 high game.
Jordan Walker, Apopka, Jr. Buzz:
She rolled 627 in district play before qualifying 12th in the state bracket with a consistent 827 four-game set (226 high game).
Julia Yates, Orange City University, Sr. Buzz:
After averaging 201 during the season, she shot a 637 series and 241 high game in district and then placed 21st at state at 799.
Jevannie Zepada, Winter Park, Jr. Buzz:
She averaged 201 in the regular season, shot 555 in district and rolled 873 in state qualifying with a 266 high game to earn the fourth seed.
FHSAA state titles with little consternation.
Titans won the Five Star Conference easily with 14-0 record and earning 102 of 112 possible points, then claimed the District 3 title.
Orange City University:
Centurions won District 8 tournament and were the sixth seed after state qualifying. They tied for sixth place at FHSAA state tournament.
Circle Christian: Buzz:
Led by Jevannie Zepada, the Wildcats were second in District 8 to Circle Christian and were the 10th seed after state qualifying rounds.
Panthers won District 4 title and then qualified 11th after state qualifying before being eliminated in match play by Circle Christian. Braves may have finished second in District 9, but they stepped it up with 13th in state qualifying competition with Lacey Reid shooting 787.
