ARLINGTON, Texas - Ranked No. 19 in the NTCA poll, the Bethune-Cookman University bowling team captured a ninth place finish Sunday at the Prairie View A&M Invitational held at the state-of-the-art Bowling International Training and Research Center in Arlington, Texas.

Bethune-Cookman entered the bracket portion on Sunday, the final day of the three-day event, looking for momentum after a successful team meeting following Saturday's Traditional games session.

The Wildcats opened the day with a heartbreaking seven-game setback to Valparaiso. But the Cats bounced back nicely to capture back-to-back wins against two ranked opponents in the form of No. 13 Stephen F. Austin (4-2) and No. 20 Alabama State, respectively.

"I'm proud of the way we were able to bounce back after two tough days of bowling and a rough weekend, and show the ability to bowl together as a team and collect two good wins to end the tournament," said B-CU head coach Tony O'Neal.

Felicia Baker helped the Cats out Sunday with solid bowling, while Rachel Moore was Saturday's top bowler, followed by senior Staci Hilliard. B-CU ended the weekend with a 2-11 overall record.

Sixth-ranked Nebraska captured this year's Prairie View A&M Invitational title, while fellow MEAC member and No. 2 ranked Maryland Eastern Shore finished second.

Bethune-Cookman will get back to the action Feb. 8 when they travel to the Capital Classic in Dover, Delaware.
