The Saints’ bowling squads are nearing the final frame. As the regular season has come to a close, the Saints are preparing for their last two meets of the year: The Hoosier Classic this coming weekend in Indianapolis, Indiana, and the WHAC championship on Feb. 18.
The women’s team finished up the regular season second in the WHAC behind Lawrence Tech University. The Saints finished seven points behind the champion Blue Devils. The Saints had a promising season, finishing top five in six of their ten tournaments, and finishing top ten in all but one. They also won two events, the RC Warrior Classic and the WHAC IV event. The team was paced this year by the trio of Allie Neal, Cristina Scheuerman, and Jacqueline DuCharme. Neal, a senior, played in seven events this year, averaging a score of 184.68 in 28 games. The junior DuCharme posted a 182.61 through 27 games, and the freshman standout Scheuerman posted a team-best 187.11 in 27 games played.
On the men’s side, the Saints finished up the regular season at fourth in the WHAC, behind Lawrence Tech, Davenport, and Indiana Tech. The Saints posted a runner-up finish in the second WHAC meet of the year, also posted a seventh place finish in the Boilermaker Classic hosted by Purdue University. The Saints were paced this year by junior Jared Edgerton and freshman Walter Tomlin. In seven events, Edgerton posted an average score of 198.97 in 32 games played. Tomlin was right behind him at an average score of 198.08 in 24 games from six events. Tomlin also set a school record this year. At the BGSU Falcon Classic in November, he posted a score of 287, the best single game in Saints’ history, as well as the best score at the tournament.
Both the men’s and women’s teams will look for a solid weekend at the Hoosier Classic as their last tune up before the WHAC Championships. Be sure to keep an eye on the Saints as they look to bring home some hardware.
