Nebraska charges to second place
UMES’s Vilas shoots 279 for highest score of the day
LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska moved from sixth place into second on Day Two of the Big Red Invitational at Sun Valley Lanes. The Huskers bowled four traditional team games during the course of the afternoon and were able to jump into contention for the title. The Huskers currently trail only Central Missouri in the standings, while Vanderbilt sits in third place.
Danielle Van Der Meer had the high average for Nebraska after the four team games with an average of 221. Her 884 total pinfall was the second-highest of the day, behind Central Missouri's Kara Richard, who posted a 932 pinfall through in four games.
Van der Meer's high game of 247 was not the highest game rolled by a Husker though. Kayla Stram, in one of her two games on the day, shot a 268. Stram's score was the second highest of the day among all competitors, following Maryland Eastern Shore's Paula Vilas' 279 game. Stram averaged 236.50 through her two games.
Along with van der Meer and Stram, Jasmine Laugerman had a total average of over 200, with her 202.50 average for the Huskers, who will be the second season in the best four of seven baker tournament Saturday morning.
Central Missouri leads the field through two days with a 6,453 pinfall, followed by Nebraska at 6,362. Vanderbilt is third at 6,357 while UMES is currently fourth with a 6,301 pinfall.
