Youth athletics: Gymnasts, bowler earn medals in SGOA

(Continued)

In the six qualifying round games, Delp broke 200 pins three times to earn the top seed in the step-ladder final.

In a step-ladder final, the lowest seed plays the second-lowest, the winner plays the third-lowest and so far until the top seed faces the remaining, meaning Delp had to wait to bowl.

In the final, Delp was edged out for the gold medal by four pins, 243-239.

Despite the tough loss, Delp did not let the defeat affect her.

"I'm proud of myself for being second," Delp said.

She plans to bowl in high school and try and continue the success she has had at the State Games.

"I think from being in the big tournaments, my nerves will be calm," she said.
