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.
