LINCOLN, Neb. -- Arkansas State is in second place after the first two days of competition at the Big Red Invitational hosted by the University of Nebraska.

BIG RED INVITATIONAL TEAM LEADERS
1 Nebraska 9,456
2 Arkansas State 9,387
3 Central Missouri 9,354
4 Wisconsin-Whitewater 8,898
5 Valparaiso 8,825

The Red Wolves finished first the two days of the tournament with a 9,387 total pinfall count, while Nebraska leads the tournament with a total of 9,456. Central Missouri (9,354) is in third place, followed by Wisconsin-Whitewater (8,898) and Valparaiso (8,825).

“All in all it was a pretty good day of us,” ASU bowling coach Justin Kostick said. “We need to sure up our spare shooting a little bit. We bowled all right-handers again today, because the left side wasn’t playing very well. We feel like we are in good position heading into the final day.”

ASU started the day with a loss to Wisconsin-Whitewater, before picking up victories over Bethune-Cookman and Stephen F. Austin. A-State lost to Valparaiso in the day’s fourth match, before ending the day with a victory over Monmouth. The Red Wolves are now 8-2 in the tournament.
