TITUSVILLE In earning its school’s first trip to a state finals competition, the Edgewood boys bowling team was dominant in the District 10 tournament on Monday at River Lanes.
Having qualified for the championship bracket in the morning session, the Indians came out and won three matches, all by 3-0 scores, to earn their spot next week in Orlando. The Edgewood boys averaged 209.
Titusville, the defending state champion in girls bowling, won its district title, holding off Merritt Island, last year’s state runner-up.
Mustangs senior Gabby Irwin, as she did last week at the Cape Coast Conference tournament, was the top girl. She bowled 208-175-279 individually for a 662 series.
Danielle Koehler of Rockledge, with a 654, and Lexi Moore of Cocoa, with a 638, qualified as individuals for state. The boys qualifying as individuals were Merritt Island’s Matt Campbell (236-222-256—714), who placed first in the district, and fourth-place Clay Kyle of Titusville (677).

Between those two boys were Theo Cox (685) and Michael Harmon Jr. (680) of Edgewood, whose team later defeated Rockledge in the district final. The Raiders also qualified for state, as did the Merritt Island girls.
Cox and Harmon both credited teamwork with the win.
“You know if you mess up you’ve got a whole team behind you,” Cox said. “That just gives you more confidence that you’ve got someone else to pick you up.”
There will be more high school bowling today at Palm Bay Shore Lanes. Teams in District 11, the southern half of Brevard County, will compete in another all-day event with state qualification on the line.
The state tournament will be Nov. 4-5 at Boardwalk Bowl in Orlando.
