GREENSBORO – After a successful start to the first half of the season, the North Carolina A&T bowling team finally got its efforts noticed with its first national ranking in program history.

The Aggies clinched the final spot of the National TenPin Coaches Association (NTCA) Media Poll and are ranked 20th in the nation. A&T received eight points in the poll and has tabbed an overall record of 29-10.

A&T has faced several teams that are nationally-ranked this season and secured wins over then-ranked No. 11 Adelphi, No. 15 Saint Francis-Brooklyn, and No. 18 Monmouth.

The Aggies (11-5) are currently second in the MEAC southern division behind Norfolk State (13-3). Other MEAC schools appearing in the poll are UMES (30-5) who is ranked second and received three first-place votes and Delaware State who took the 14th spot with a 31-25 record.  

NTCA voters rank the top 20 teams on their ballot. Each position has a designated point value, ranging from 32 points for first place and one point for 20th place. Teams are ranked using the adjusted total point standings, after the highest and lowest votes are dropped.

A&T kicks off its 2014 schedule at the Kutztown Invitational beginning on Friday, Jan. 24.
