Red Knights, Gators alive in state bowling tournament
The North Fort Myers Red Knights are in today’s semifinals of the FHSAA bowling tournament in Orlando.
North scored victories against Park Vista (3-1), Apopka (3-1) and Jupiter (3-2).
The winner between the Red Knights and William T. Dwyer goes directly into the championship match, while the loser faces the surviving team from the consolation match to determine the other finalist.
Island Coast’s girls bowlers opened with a 3-0 win against Winter Park before losing to Rockledge 3-2. In the consolation bracket, the Gators rebounded to defeat University 3-2 and were to face Circle Christian early Thursday. The winner of that match would turn right around and play Space Coast.
The state tournament wraps up today.
