ASU bowlers Lokker and Rucker have success in Team USA Trials

From Arkansas State University

Two members of the Arkansas State bowling team experienced success in the Team USA Trials held in Henderson, Nev., Jan. 3-7.

Sophomore Sarah Lokker finished fourth with 75 ranking points and a 6,279 total pinfall. Junior Ashley Rucker finished with 144 ranking points and a 5,944 total pinfall. Rucker was able to qualify for Junior Team USA and joins Lokker on the team. Lokker qualified for the team last summer.

Lokker and Rucker have both played key roles in leading the Red Wolves to a 24-13 mark on the season and No. 7 ranking in the latest NTCA poll. Lokker has been named to the all-tournament team on two separate occasions this year. Rucker earned a spot on one all-tournament team and narrowly missed another so far this season.

The A-State bowling team is back in action Jan. 11-13 when they host the Mid-Winter Invitational in Jonesboro.
