HOUSTON (February 18, 2018) – The 17th-ranked North Carolina A&T bowling team finished in 11th place during the Stephen F. Austin Stormin’ Ladyjack Classic at Copperfield Lanes on Sunday with a 6-7 finish at the event that included a 12,845 total pinfall.

The University of Nebraska won the event with a total pinfall of 13,628 and a 13-0 record as the Cornhuskers won bracket play on Sunday. They were followed by McKendree (10-3, 14,172), Arkansas State (9-4, 13,074), Stephen F. Austin (7-6, 13,384) and Vanderbilt (7-6, 13,332) in the top-5.

N.C. A&T’s highest finisher individual finisher was freshman Ana Olaya who finished 15th in Houston over the weekend with a total pinfall of 1,037 for an average of 207.4 in five traditional games bowled. Senior Brianna Boze was 17th as she finished with a 1,032 total pinall and a 206.4 average.

“We will continue our focus on consistency as we head into the postseason,” said N.C. A&T coach Kim Terrell-Kearney.

The Aggies (43-39) started off Day 2 of the tournament strong in team individual play. They defeated tournament-host Stephen F. Austin 978-921 with Olaya bowling a 236. Freshman Cameron Strombeck and Boze chipped in by bowling a 203 and 202 respectively.

In their win over Wisconsin-Whitewater, Olaya came through again with a 194 in a close 848-846 victory. It was their lowest margin of victory this season. N.C. A&T’s winning ways continued with a win over Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference rival Maryland Eastern Shore. The Hawks defeated the Aggies for the MEAC title in 2017, but on Day 2, the Aggies defeated MDES 1,083-974 for their 10th game reaching 1,000-plus pinfall this season.

The Aggies narrowly beat the Hawks at the Hawks Classic earlier this season in traditional play in 946-932 win. The last time they met was two weeks ago during the Prairie View A&M Invitational with the Hawks winning 985-921 in Bakers format.

In the win over the Hawks on Day 2, Strombeck bowled the Aggies best game in traditional play by posting a 237. Three other Aggies were over 200 or above in the win including Olaya (235), Boze (231) and sophomore Mia Pope (200).

After their win over the Hawks, N.C. A&T endured a four-game losing streak before winning their last game in bracket play on Sunday. The Aggies dropped a 919-855 decision to the University of Alabama-Birmingham before losing to the second-ranked team in the National Tenpin Coaches Association poll, McKendree, with a 966-947 score.

The other two losses were in the best 4-of-7 bracket play with the first being to LIU-Brooklyn 1,189-1,091 in six games. The Aggies lost again to UAB 1,294-1,131 in six games. N.C. A&T returned to the winner’s column with a sweep of Louisiana Tech 782-684.

The Aggies will finally get to bowl at home in their next tournament. N.C. A&T will host the third MEAC Southern Conference meet Feb. 24-25 at AMF Lanes on Holden Road in Greensboro.
