Blue Raiders’ Brunner makes bowling state championships

Posted

Cody Brunner, a junior at Middletown Area High School, will compete in the PIAA State High School Bowling Championships on Friday, March 15, at Dutch Lanes in Ephrata.

He advanced to the state finals by placing in the top 12 at the PIAA Eastern Regional Championships on March 1 at Leisure Lanes in Lancaster. His scores of 246-234-236-247-174 put him in the quad matches of the Eastern Regional.

A score of 212 in the quad  bracket was not good enough to advance to the semifinals but did place him ninth out of 195 in the event.

The event was won by Isaac Erickson of Warwick High School.

Cody averaged 198 in the Harrisburg Area Interscholastic Bowling League, which qualified him to compete in the Eastern Regionals and the PIAA District 3 Championships. He placed 12th in the District 3 event held on Feb. 27.

Brunner is the third Middletown bowler to compete in the Pennsylvania State High School Bowling Championships. Cole Kautz (2014) and Eric Belles (2015 and 2016) are the others who have competed in the state championships.
