There’s clutch. And then there’s Urbana High School senior Taylor Bodey.
Bodey came through with a 300 in her third and final game Saturday to win a Division II girls state individual bowling championship at Wayne Webb’s Columbus Bowl.
Bodey’s 658 series (191-167-300) left her eight pins clear of runner-up Alyx Kearney of Kenton Ridge. The Cougars sophomore rolled games of 223, 201 and 226. Bodey was 56 pins behind Kearney entering the final game.
Graham junior Abigail Ogden tied for 13th with a 563 series. Other area bowlers finishing in the top 20 were Mechanicsburg sophomore Katie Bush (17th, 556), Kenton Ridge junior Ashley Wallace (19th, 550) and Urbana junior Ciera Marchal (20th, 546).
The Springfield area made it a clean sweep of state titles when Mechanicsburg beat defending champion Coldwater in the team championship.
Seeded fifth after the team qualifying, the Indians knocked off No. 4 Napoleon and No. 1 Urbana before beating the third-seeded Cavaliers 745-715 in five Baker games in the final.
Joining Bush on the winning team were junior Emily Taylor, sophomores Michaela Edwards and Lauren Mayberry and freshman Ally Hosier.
Urbana finished third and Kenton Ridge was fifth.
