LAFAYETTE—Barbe’s season-long winning streak on the bowling lanes came to an end Friday.
The Bucs lost in the state semifinals 22-5 to defending champ Archbishop Rummel, which later in the day went on to capture its second straight title.
Rummel beat Morgan City in the championship match at Arcadiana Lanes, 18-9.
“It was a very good year for us,” said Barbe head bowling coach James Kelly. “To be able to play for a championship with a young team is great.”
Barbe finished the year 15-1 with five sophomores and one junior.
“We will be back,” said Kelly.
It was not the first time Barbe and Rummel met in the state championship in a sport.
The Bucs beat Rummel to win the 5A baseball championship last spring and lost to the Raiders in the 5A football title game.
