GREENSBORO (February 24, 2018) – North Carolina A&T bowling took advantage of being at home for the first and only time of the 2017-18 season on Saturday at Greensboro’s AMF Lanes. The Aggies, who were competing at their practice facility on 910 S. Holden Rd., maintained their lead in MEAC Southern Division after Day 1 of the MEAC Southern Division Meet #3 by going 4-2 with a 5,496 total pinfall and a 183.2 average.

The Aggies went 2-1 in conference play with only the traditional team games played on Saturday counting toward the conference standings. The Aggies went 2-1 in the non-conference Bakers format games. The MEAC South added three extra Bakers matches to meet the required number of games played for a tournament to count toward the United States Bowling Congress rankings.

The MEAC meet concludes on Sunday as competition begins at 10 a.m., with the Aggies having a chance to claim their fourth straight division title. Second-place Norfolk State went 1-2 on Saturday, giving the Aggies (11-4) a two-game lead over the Spartans (9-6) with three Bakers format games to be played on Sunday.  

Freshman Ana Olaya, the reigning co-rookie of the week in the MEAC, is in second place after the first day as she posted a total pinfall of 635 for a 211.67 average. Freshman Candyce Bradley also found herself in the top-5 with a 568 total pinfall and a 189.33 average. Olaya was the Aggies top bowler in all three traditional games on Saturday starting with a 234 against the Spartans. Bradley aided the effort with a 212 as the Aggies took down NSU 1,012-951 to go up two games on the Spartans.

They followed their 11th game above a 1,000 total pinfall by conquering Bethune-Cookman 913-800. The win coupled with a Spartan loss to the Florida A&M Rattlers, pushed the Aggies closer to another division title. Olaya’s 209 led the way for the Aggies. But N.C. A&T suffered their only loss in traditional play to FAMU in a back and forth competition. The Aggies held a slight lead heading into the 10th frame but could not hold onto as the Rattlers squeezed by with a 941-904 victory. The Aggies did not have a bowler go above 200 in the game as Olaya and Bradley led the effort as each lady bowled a 192.

N.C. A&T (47-41) started off Bakers format a little slow falling to Norfolk State 966-896. They then found their groove in the lanes and went on to defeat Bethune-Cookman 873-806 and Florida A&M 898-817.
