Union-Endicott won the Section IV team title and a berth at the state championships with a nine-game set (three at Class sectionals and six Friday) of 8,000, more than 300 pins better than runner-up Horseheads, which tallied 7,667 pins. Susquehanna Valley was third with 7,243, Windsor was fourth at 6,943, and Waverly was seventh at 6,519.

Bonyak rolled a nine-game total of 1,610 and was third overall, behind U-E’s Alexis Ripic and Christin Shara, who shot 1,768 and 1,717, respectively.
Elmira’s Loghan Wagner, Sus. Valley’s Rachel Weyant, Horseheads’ Michelle Williams, Hancock’s Brenna Gleim, and Windsor’s Abby Harder round out the Section IV team. Candor’s Nicole Gates finished seventh and is the alternate.
