Moore’s 1,700 pins (212.5 average) lead the field. In the ladder format, the No. 6 seed will face No. 5, with that winner taking on No. 4, then No. 3 until only No. 1 awaits, meaning Moore will finish no worse than second in the state at the end of this morning’s 8:30 a.m. session.
Dabbs is seeded fourth with 642 pins (160.5 average) and will face the winner of No. 6-seed Caroline Conrad of St. Agnes and Kaelyn Thomas of Donelson Christian. If Dabbs wins, she would take on No. 3 Grace Becker of St. Agnes.
