NSU Moves Up to 11th in NTCA Coaches Poll

NORFOLK, Va. - The Norfolk State bowling team moved up to 11th in the latest National Tenpin Coaches Association (NTCA) top-20 poll, released by the organization this weekend. The ranking marks the highest ever for the Spartan bowling program.

The Spartans were 13th in the previous coaches poll, which had stood as their best ranking ever. NSU owned a 61-28 overall record prior to this weekend's Capital Classic.

NSU garnered 237 points in the poll, finishing ahead of No. 12 New Jersey City, which had 221 points.

The Spartans own a 16-4 record in conference play, four games ahead of second-place Bethune-Cookman and Florida A&M. NSU will aim for its third Southern Division title in four years with the last MEAC Southern Divisional tournament March 3-4.

UMES Bowling Falls To Fifth in Latest NTCA Poll

Princess Anne, Md.- Despite winning the largest NCAA bowling tournament in the nation and taking two second places, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) dropped one spot, from fourth to fifth in the latest National Tenpins Coaches Association (NTCA) poll this month.  The Hawks, standing at 71-26, amassed 555 points to remain in the top-five and sit 60 points out of fourth place.

UMES won the Kutztown Invitational in a field of 28 teams, featuring 16 of the nation's top-20 programs at the time.  The prior weekend they took second-place at the Terries New Year Knockdown single-day events and just last weekend took second at the Prairie View A&M Invitational.  They opened the second-half of the season with a fifth place finish at the Mid-Winter Classic, hosted by Arkansas State.  They went a combined 34-17 in those four events.

Delaware State, at No. 13, is the only other MEAC school in the poll.
