MERRILLVILLE, Ind. (11/12/10) — The Arkansas State women's bowling team (14-3) posted a 2-2 record on the opening day of the Crusader Classic in Merrillville, Ind. Friday.
The Red Wolves defeated Minnesota State-Mankato 859-719 in their first match of the day but fell 692-681 to Elmhurst in the second. Valparaiso took a 790-718 win over ASU, but the Red Wolves bounced back to top Wisconsin-Whitewater 830-667.
"We had a bye after the first match, and that hurt our momentum a little," said ASU head coach Justin Kostick. "We just fell into a lull and didn't play as well as we could have against Elmhurst and Valparaiso. We're hoping to come out and really compete in the team games tomorrow."
