The IAHS bowling teams traveled to Rebelanes in Tupelo Saturday morning to compete for the state title.
There were six teams in the boys and girls divisions but only the top two teams after the four semi final games would advance to the finals.
After two games, IAHS trailed Tupelo, but, in game three, the Indians took a 99-pin lead to take first place.
In the last semi final game, Tupelo had the chance to regain first place but after not picking a single spare in the tenth frame, the Wave fell 3,823-3,794.
The Indians and the Wave earned their way into the finals. Clinton came in third with 3,506, followed by Meridian with 3,485. Northwest Rankin finished in fourth with 3,388, followed by Madison Central with 3,092.
On the girls' end of the alley, the Lady Indians dominated from the first game. After the four semi final games, the Lady Indians took first place by 383 pins.
The Lady Wave squeaked past Clinton 3,104-3,087 to advance to the finals.
Northwest Rankin came in fourth with a 2506 total, followed by Ridgeland with 2,342 and Madison Central with 2,218.
After a short break, the teams geared up for the finals. The finals were a best of seven series in the Baker-style format.
The Lady Indians dominated the Lady Wave in game one 180-137 and picked up game two 173-122.
With a two game lead the Lady Indians were on fire and coasted to the state title over the tired and frustrated Lady Wave. The Lady Indians picked up game three 169-102 and won 167-144 in game four, sweeping the Lady Wave to capture the State Championship.
The Indians battled with the Wave in the finals, but the Wave hit the pins they needed to pick up the win. The Indians fell 236-211 in game one and the Wave barely squeaked by 166-162 in game two.
The Indians didn't bowl well in the third game and fell 220-184 and in the fourth and final game, so the Wave picked up the sweep 211-194.
The Wave picked up its third consecutive state title but the Indians handed the Wave its only loss of the year earlier in the season.
The Indians didn't walk away empty handed as they received a second-place trophy and medals. Also T.J. Senter picked up the individual state title with a score of 883.
The girls' individual winner was Lynnsey Cromeans with a score of 888.
Both Senter and Cromeans will receive medals from Jackson that will be sent to IAHS.
The state champion Lady Indians are Lynnsy Cromeans, Ashley Cromeans, Katelyn Senter, Bridgitte Farmer, Jessica Tull, Rachael Carpenter, Destin McMurry and Deaven Tomlin.
