From Arkansas State University

The Arkansas State women's bowling team finished in second place at the Morgan State Invitational.  The Red Wolves went 10-2 overall on the weekend.

The Red Wolves won their first match of the day over No. 1 Central Missouri 4-1 to advance to the championship match against No. 2 Maryland-Eastern Shore.  A-State lost to UMES 4-1 to finish as the runner-up.  The match was much closer than the score indicated as both teams bowled really well.

"We bowled really well in the final match, but lost game one 194-193," ASU bowling coach Justin Kostick said.  "We lost games four and five after bowling 230 so we bowled really well, but UMES made some great shots too."

ASU went 4-1 on day two of the tournament to improve to 9-1 overall heading into the tournament play on Sunday.  The Red Wolves defeated St. Francis of Pennsylvania (989-933), Long Island University (973-900), Hampton (993-823), Morgan State(856-808) and lost to Kutztown (947-879).  A-State went into the final day of the tournament as the fourth seed with a total pinfall of 8,653.

Kostick added, "We did go 10-2 which was best at the tournament and we're 55-20 overall so we're in good shape for the NCAA's.  I am satisfied with our performance on the weekend."

Arkansas State's next tournament is the Holiday City Classic Feb. 22-24 in Bessemer, Ala.
