CHESAPEAKE, Va. (March 24, 2017) – In a day where seeding was determined at the 2017 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Bowling Tournament Championship, North Carolina A&T had the second-highest pin fall of the day (4,713) to earn the No. 2 seed for Saturday’s Baker play action at AMF Lanes.

The Aggies will face seventh-seeded Florida A&M 9 a.m., Saturday as the Rattlers had a total pin fall of 4,245. If they win, they will advance to play either third-seeded Delaware State (4,708) or sixth-seeded Morgan State (4,311) at 10:40 a.m.  If the Aggies lose, they will play the DSU/MSU loser at 10:40 a.m.

Delaware State being in the Aggies’ bracket is an interesting occurrence, considering the Hornets are ranked eighth in the nation. Despite having the third-highest pin fall on Friday, the Hornets were 5-0 in traditional team play including a 951-931 win over the Aggies. The only other time the two teams have played this season also came in traditional team play when the Hornets defeated the Aggies 962-922 at the Kutztown Invitational (Jan. 20-22).

The top seed went Maryland Eastern Shore who posted a 4,887-total pin fall after going 3-2. The Aggies (89-70), who are looking for their first MEAC title in 13 years, opened the championship weekend with a 928-889 over Morgan State. N.C. A&T then knocked off Howard 880-811. N.C. A&T, who is ranked 18th in the country, knocked off another nationally-ranked team next as they defeated MDES 1,017-975. After their loss to DSU, the Aggies closed the day with a 957-849 win over Bethune-Cookman.
