John Jay High School Sophmore, Victoria Pacacha, placed 2nd at the NYSPHSAA State Bowling Finals this past weekend. She shot 1,269 points in 6 games in Rochester, New York at AMF Gates Bowl. She also shot the 3rd highest game in the State for individuals with a score of 278. This is her 3rd year in a row going to States and this is the first time she placed top 3 as the Section One All-Star team. This team consists of Alyssa Rubeo, Lauren Regan, Julia Lynch, Megan Dobronski, and Leah Cole. Their second place finish was dedicated in remembrance of their good friend Brandon Smith, who recently passed away. It was difficult for the team to lose Brandon, but they bowled their best and finished in second place. The Section One All-Star Girls have never placed top 3 until this year.
