ORMOND BEACH, Fla. (March 4, 2017) – The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Southern Division bowling title will come down to final day of the third MEAC Meet as Norfolk State went 3-0 Saturday to tie North Carolina A&T atop the Southern Division at 11-4 as the Aggies went 2-1 during Saturday’s traditional team play at Ormond Lanes.

N.C. A&T had total team pin fall of 2,637 which was only bested by the Spartans’ 2,711 total pin fall. The regular-season title will likely come down between a Baker match between the Aggies and Spartans on Sunday. The Aggies are 2-0 against the Spartans this season in Baker play.

On Saturday, the Spartans capitalized on what has been their advantage this season against the Aggies. Norfolk State is now 3-0 against the Aggies in traditional team play after defeating the Aggies 897-821 in what was N.C. A&T’s second match of the day. Freshman Mia Pope and senior Kristin Shinn gave bowled 202 and 201 respectively, but the normally reliable MacKenzie Robinson, an All-American, bowled a 147. Brianna Boze and Tyra Merritt also bowled way below their averages in the close contest.

The Aggies (75-64) looked strong in their other two matchups. They opened the day with a convincing win over tournament host Bethune-Cookman, 938-220. Robinson was spectacular in that match. She bowled a season-best 268 which was two pins shy of her career-high 269 she bowled at the NCAA Championship Bowling Tournament last season in North Brunswick, N.J.

N.C. A&T closed out the day with an 878-802 win over Florida A&M. Boze gave the Aggies a 207 while Robinson chipped in with a 198 performance. Robinson led the Aggies with an average pin fall of 204.33. Shin averaged a 180.

The Aggies are after their third straight MEAC Southern Division title. They are 5-1 in Baker matches in the MEAC this season.
