KENNER, La. – The 20th-ranked Bethune-Cookman bowling team wrapped up its season-opening event Sunday, Oct. 20, at the AMF All Star Lanes as part of the AllState Sugar Bowl Collegiate Invitational. The annual event was hosted by Tulane University.

A day after B-CU bowling head coach Robert “Tony” O’Neal admitted he had mixed emotions about how his team performed during the first two days of competition, the Wildcats used that challenge from their head coach to take two wins in the final day of bowling.

Bethune-Cookman began the bracket portion of the tournament seeded sixth after going 6-4, respectively, in both Baker and Team competition Friday and Saturday.

The Wildcats opened Sunday’s bowling with a 4.5-2.5 victory over Alabama A&M in the opening round. The Cats stumbled to Texas Southern in the next round by a 4-1 decision.

Bethune-Cookman completed the event in fifth place, using a 4-2 defeat over Louisiana Tech in its final match.

The Wildcats return to the lanes Nov. 1-3, traveling to the Fairleigh Dickinson New Jersey Jamboree in Elmwood, N.J. The Cats missed last year’s event due to the hurricane moving into the New York/New Jersey area.
