NORFOLK, Va. – North Carolina A&T’s Emily Strombeck was named the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Bowling Player of the Year as announced by the conference on Friday. Maryland Eastern Shore’s Sara Pelayo was named the Rookie of the Year, while North Carolina A&T head coach James Williams earned Coach of the Year accolades. 

All awards are voted on by the conference's head bowling coaches and sports information directors. 

Strombeck guided the No. 13 Lady Aggies to a 17-7 mark in conference play and 73-30 overall record as North Carolina A&T placed second in the southern division. The sophomore totaled 8,889 pinfall and averaged 202.0 in 44 games. She bowled a season-high 254, and was selected MEAC Bowler of the Week four times. Strombeck, who was named MEAC Rookie of the Year last season, earned Tournament MVP honors at the Aggie Master’s Challenge and selected to four All-Tournament Teams this season.

Pelayo tallied a 198.0 averaged pinfall in 74 games during her rookie campaign. She recorded 5,157 total pinfall and notched a season-high 243 against Coppin State at the MEAC Northern Divisional #2. Pelayo registered four tournaments with over 1,000 total pinfall, including 1,163 during six games at the Kutztown Invitational. As a team, the Lady Hawks will look for their second consecutive MEAC Tournament Championship and third over the last four years.

In his fifth season at the helm, Williams guided the Lady Aggies to a 73-30 regular season record and 17-7 mark in MEAC play. North Carolina A&T placed second in the southern division and are currently ranked 13th in the nation by the National Tenpins Coaches Association (NTCA).

Joining Strombeck on the All-MEAC First-Team is Mariana Alvarado, Megan Buja and Victoria Jones of Maryland Eastern Shore, and Norfolk State’s Thea Aspiras.
