ASU Bowling 6-0 at Music City Classic

SMYRNA, Tenn. ( – The Arkansas State women's bowling team registered a 6-0 record and is third overall in total pinfall after the first day of competition at the Music City Classic in Smyrna, Tenn.

The No. 1 ranked Red Wolves (86-26) began their day with a 770-751 win over Monmouth and recorded their second-highest pinfall of the day against Bethune-Cookman in an 851-822 victory.  A-State reeled off wins against Prairie View A&M (805-707), No. 16 Long Island University (771-688), and Tulane (791-716) before recording its highest pinfall total of the day in an 866-699 win over No. 20 Adelphi.

"I'm happy with today's performance considering we weren't able to practice all week," A-State bowling coach Justin Kostick said.  "Anytime you go 6-0, it's a good day."

Arkansas State (4,854) is just 15 pins behind second-place Vanderbilt (4,869) and trails first-place Fairleigh Dickinson (4,950) by 96 pins.  Stephen F. Austin's total pinfall of 4,730 is fourth, while St. Francis (Pa.) rounds out the top five with 4,669 pins.  A-State was the only team out of the 29-team field to not lose a match during Friday's competition.

The Red Wolves hit the lanes at 8:30 a.m. Saturday morning for the second day of the tournament.  Each team will bowl in six traditional team games before being seeded for bracket play on Sunday.
