Bulldogs Finish 18th in Prestigious Hoosier Classic

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - The women's bowling team competed in their biggest and most challenging tournament of the season at the Hoosier Classic this past weekend. The challenging part of the tournament is two very difficult sport patterns, one for each day of the tournament.

The Bulldogs fared well finishing 18th out of 55 teams and defeated eight teams ranked higher entering play. Nicole Loomis and Kristen Marcis both finished in the top 50 placing 29th and 40th out of 371 bowlers. This year's finish was a vast improvement of placing 26th a year ago. Loomis averaged 183.44 and along with Marcis were the only Bulldogs to bowl all nine games. She had a high game of 197 rolled in the seventh game. Marcis averaged 180.78 with a high of 231 in game four.

"I am thrilled with how well the entire team bowled this weekend," said head coach Jody Fetterhoff. "Both Nicole and Kristen had outstanding tournaments, but it was are subs that made the difference. All three of them came in at various points throughout the tournament and contributed right away. We were only 11 pins from 16th place and 16 teams will make Nationals, so that gives us a ton of confidence as we wait to find out where we will get sent for Sectionals on Wednesday."
