Bardol, a 2010 Junior Team USA member, was the No. 12 qualifier in the men’s field while Boisselle, a two-time Junior Team USA member, was the No. 13 qualifier for the women. Bardol beat Sean Rangel of William Penn, 3-1, in the men’s title match while Boisselle edged Central Florida teammate Samantha Macina, 3-2, to claim the title.

While top qualifiers received byes into later rounds, both Bardol and Boisselle started their first matches at 7:30 a.m. and the day proved to be a long one for both players. Boisselle did not claim the title until topping Macina in the fifth game of the title match, 172-157. Boisselle had three open frames in the final game and trailed by 42 pins in the fourth frame before rallying in what would be her 23rd game of the day.

“It’s unbelievable,” Boisselle said. “I didn’t think I could come from 13th and all the way at the bottom of the bracket to win. All of the matches were at least four or more games - it was rough. But I’m just glad I pulled through; it’s amazing, just unbelievable.”

In the best-of-five match-play format, Boisselle went the full five games in three of her matches. She was down two games to none to Kimberly Yioulos of Pikeville before coming back to win the third-round match. She then beat top qualifier Jessica Santiago of Webber International, 3-1, in the semifinals before edging Macina, 3-2.

“I didn’t want anyone to have to go away not happy,” Boisselle said of having to face her teammate. “But it’s nice to go tell other teams that we finished first and second at Intercollegiate Singles.”

Bardol also faced a long road to the title but managed two sweeps and was only extended to five games in one match - the semifinal match against Michael Conn of Bellarmine, a match in which he trailed two games to one.

“Mike’s a great bowler and I was lucky enough to squeak it out,” Bardol said. “I was struggling at the beginning of the year and this feels awesome. There’s a lot of great players that have won this already, and just to be added to them is pretty cool.”

The 16 men and 16 women earned their way into the tournament through four sectional qualifying events held in March. The top four qualifiers at each sectional advanced to the national event.
