DELAND, Fla. - Staci Hilliard took individual honors, and Bethune-Cookman finished with a 2-2 record Saturday at the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Southern Divisional at Sunshine Lanes.
Hilliard rolled 219 or better in three of her four games to earn MVP honors. B-CU's Felicia Baker had the individual high game with a 235.
In team competition, B-CU downed North Carolina A&T and North Carolina Central while falling to Florida A&M and Norfolk State. Norfolk State and Florida A&M each had 3-1 records, but North Carolina A&T had the highest five-game pinfall with 3,550, followed by Norfolk State (3,541), B-CU (3,531), Florida A&M (3,368) and North Carolina Central (3,283).
"I thought the young ladies bowled decent today. We were consistent and we made our spares when strikes were hard to come by," said B-CU Head Coach Tony O'Neal. "We gained a little momentum heading into Sunday. We have to settle down and bowl like Wildcats."
Action resumes Sunday with Baker games. In the Baker format, starting members of the competing teams will successively and, in regular order, bowl one frame on one lane. Once five frames are completed, the team members will remain on the same lane and complete the starting member order again, with frames six through 10 being completed. This pattern of play will continue until all 10 frames of a game are completed. No changes can be made in the order of players after the start of a game, except for substitutes, although once a bowler has been pulled from the game they are not allowed to return until the next game.
