Congrats to IHSA State Qualifier, Mike Stepanovic!
For the fifith straight year, at least one Caravan bowler will be headed to the state finals as senior Mike Stepanovic finished seventh on Saturday at the St. Patrick Sectional to earn the final state individual qualifying spot. He started the day with a 264 game and survived tough lane conditions to make it. The team finished eighth out of 16 teams after a slow start. Regional champ Christian Whitaker posted a nice 670 set in his last three games after a tough morning.
For the first time in program history, the Mount Carmel bowling team brought home an IHSA postseason title. The Caravan trailed by as many as 190 pins on Saturday at the Chicago Lindblom Regional, and still trailed Reavis by 22 pins going into the last game. But they produced their best team game of the season with 1,047 and overtook Reavis for the regional title. Christian Whitaker led the way with an individual first-place effort by rolling 1,363 for six games (227 average), while Mike Stepanovic averaged 195 for the day. The Caravan advance to the Chicago St. Patrick Sectional on Saturday at Habetler Bowl.
