GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Indiana Tech women’s bowling team finished third and the men took fifth in the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference Championships hosted by Davenport University on Saturday. The two teams finished fifth and fourth in the regular season, respectively, and had varying degrees of success today.
The women put together one of their best performances of the season as they finished qualifying in second place, winning the third baker game while finishing second in the previous two for a total pin-fall of 2192, behind DU’s 2234, receiving a bye into the quarterfinals where they faced the winner of the three and six seed match between Northwestern Ohio and Siena Heights.
UNOH swept the first three games to advance to face the Warriors who took three of the five games to advance to the semifinals to face the Panthers. DU only allowed Tech to win one game, forcing the Orange and Black to face UNOH for a second time for a chance at the title.
In the rematch, the Racers swept the Warriors, 3-0, ending the day for Tech, who finished in third place.
On the men’s side, things didn’t go as smoothly as the Warriors stumbled in the qualifying round, finishing in sixth place with 2019 total pins, forcing them to face Lawrence Tech in the first round of the Championship Bracket.
In the first round, the Warriors fell to the Blue Devils, 3.5-2.5 forcing the Orange and Black to the consolation bracket. Once there Tech was tasked with beating top-seeded UNOH, who was upset by Concordia. Despite winning two games, the Warriors couldn’t get the third, falling 3-2 and taking fifth place.
Jacob Camacho was named first team All-Conference for the men, the silver lining on the day for the Warriors. The Champions of Character team members for the Warriors were Quinton Burnett for the men and Samantha Pasch for the women.
