Spartans Tally 4-2 Record at 2nd Divisional of Year
GREENSBORO, N.C. – Norfolk State finished with a 4-2 record this weekend at the MEAC Southern Divisional, and the No. 20 Spartan bowling team now sits a game behind North Carolina A&T for first place after the second of three divisionals on the season.
NSU and host A&T came into the divisional tied for first in the South. After falling behind NSU in the standings after Saturday’s play at the AMF All-Star Lanes, the Aggies came back to take a one-game lead thanks to an overall 5-1 weekend. They now stand 9-3 in league play, with Norfolk State sitting at 8-4.
The teams will have to wait to ultimately decide first place, as the third and final divisional will not take place until Feb. 25-26.
Hawks finish 6-2 at MEAC No. 2 meet
PRINCESS ANNE, Md. — Maryland Eastern Shore bowling coach Kayla Bandy has been adamant that this year’s roster is deeper than any she’s had in her three seasons at the helm of the Hawks program.
Over the weekend during the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference North No. 2 meet, she got proof.
After going 3-1 on Saturday with a lineup of regular starters at Eastern Shore Lanes in Pocomoke, Bandy had an opportunity to put a completely different lineup on the lanes on Sunday.
Sophomore Lindie Esteban, sophomore Quianna Macares, freshman Cayla Hicks, freshman Brigitte Jacobs and junior Jalesa Johnson all played all day on Sunday.
That group finished the day’s Baker matches 3-1 as well to give the team a 6-2 mark for the weekend.
