The Pitt-Bradford bowling team finished 2-1
in matchups with Medaille, Penn State Altoona and Mount Aloysius, during an
Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference tournament.
The Panthers defeated Medaille 778-668 and Mount Aloysius
676-546, in the dual match portion of the weekend tournament. Tournament-host Penn State Altoona nipped the
Pitt-Bradford (11-10, 2-1) had two bowlers record scores of
200 or better in the victory over Medaille. Sarah Foley recorded a 214 and
Brittany Macrina tallied a 204. That marks the first time this season the squad
had two bowlers clip the 200-point mark.
During the team’s second match with Penn State Altoona, the
Panthers struggled to find any consistency on the lane. As a result, the Lions
found a way to knock down just enough pins to steal the win.
The Panthers headed into the third and final match with Mount
Aloysius sitting at 1-1 on the afternoon. A win would put the team on the
positive side of the win/loss column, and allow them to head to the hotel
feeling good about their efforts.
Foley again paced the Panthers, this time with a 197, to a
victory over the Mounties. Meghan Ryan was next on the chart, finishing with a
“I’m proud of our team today,” said head coach Andy Spring. “Not
only did they improve each game, but they also kept a positive attitude
throughout the afternoon.”
The teams will be back at the lanes on Sunday, Nov. 16, at 9
a.m. to compete in the Baker format of the competition.
