On Monday the Greeneville boys bowling team traveled to Region 2 champion Sevier County and saw its season come to an end in the state sectionals.

Both teams got off to a good start, splitting the six individual games, but the homestanding Smoky Bears, would grab the early 5-3 advantage (1108-1051).  Kayden Lamon (205) and Patrick Buckner (204) paced the leaders, followed by Leland Metcalf ( 194) and Lukas Raney (188).  

Greeneville’s leaders were Casey Doughty (221), Jayden Key (214), Trey Gudger (169), and Grant Litchfield (163).  The first Baker game saw Sevier County claim a slim 203-196 win and extend their lead to 7-3.  

In the second Baker game, the Smoky Bears would catch fire late and pull away to the 193-162 win and lead 9-3.  Looking to keep the match within striking distance, Greeneville would strike out in the third game to settle for a 171, but unfortunately, Sevier County’s anchor, Kayden Laymon would double and would get a good count to settle for a 172 and an 11-3 advantage.

With the match well in hand, the Smoky Bears would roll off five straight strikes, en route to the 246-181 win.  The final game saw Sevier County complete the Baker sweep 104-95 and win the match 20-3.  Sevier County runs their record to 26-0 heading into the state tournament, where they will face off with Signal Mountain on Thursday morning, while Greeneville sees its season come to an end with a record of 5-11.
