The White House girls bowling squad fell to Bartlett in the TSSAA Division I state quarterfinals on Friday afternoon.

The White House Lady Devils’ shot at a state title ended in the final eight on Friday afternoon, as red-hot Bartlett dispatched White House 22-5 in the TSSAA Division I Girls Bowling quarterfinals at the Smyrna Bowling Center.

White House senior Lauren Smith won three of the five matches and finished 3-0 for the state round. She was also an individual competition state semifinalist and finished 16th overall.

The opening game set the tone, as Bartlett won five of six matches over the Lady Devils. Savannah Blair rolled a game-high 185 for White House, but her opponent Chase Rock dropped a 216. Smith won the single match for the Devils, defeating Janna Labuda 173-151. With bonus points, Bartlett took a 7-1 lead.

In the second set, Bartlett won four out of six. State quarterfinalist Miranda Cain had a day-high 212 to win her match over Karissa Adkinson. Smith completed her second win with a 205-187 victory over Rebekah Labuda.

Bartlett led 13-3 after two.

In the final game, Smith again won 193-182 over Rebekah Labuda to finish 3-0 for the day. Individual state runner-up Kyleigh Husted rolled her best game in the team competition at 202 and beat state individual champion Jordan Mundt, 202-178.

However, Husted faced Mundt four times during the day and the champ won three of them. Mundt took two victories in the team competition and had another earlier in the morning in the individual state championship match, which does not count toward team scores.

Bartlett took the head-to-head matches 13-5, and then got three bonus points for the match and two bonus points for each game to finish the 22-5 victory.

White House knocked down 2,895 pins, but Barlett dominated with 3,290.

Bartlett, which lost to White House in a tournament earlier in the year, advanced to the semifinals to face Stewarts Creek. The Panthers beat Stewarts Creek 21.5-5.5 but fell to undefeated Hardin County (21-0) in the state championship match, 22-5.

White House finished its season 13-4. In addition to Cain, Husted and Smith, the Lady Blue Devil roster also included Savannah Blair, Jaycee Whitaker, Ella Husted, Cristin Law and Laura Moore.
