Congratulations to Jackson Stiles & Peyton Hughes - top 8 in overall individual scores at the AHSAA North Alabama Regional Bowling tournament!!!

With a team score of 2651, Buckhorn Boys earned a spot in last week's AHSAA State Bowling Finals, finishing 5th overall for day one.

In individual leaders, Jackson Stiles finished 4th overall in the state.

Friday's championship schedule featured a four-round single-elimination championship match play bracket. Teams competed using the Baker Format (one round of traditional bowling plus three round of Baker Format play) per match. Bowling began at 8 a.m. with Buckhorn paired with Stanhope Elmore for their first match of the day! The Bucks earned the WIN over Stanhope-Elmore to advance to round two and will take on Thompson next!

Buckhorn Bowling had another amazing season....this year just didn't end the way we wanted. The Bucks fell in round 2 of the AHSAA Bowling Championship Finals to the Thompson Warriors, 1449 - 1526. So proud of Coach Brittney Carnell and the Buckhorn High School Bowling teams!!
