“It was a good day for us,” ASU bowling coach Justin Kostick said. “We bowled really well and had a few step up and give us a boost. You need that this time of year and we just want to continue the success through Saturday and Sunday.”
Freshman Kalynn Carl provided a spark in the Red Wolves rotation from the right side. The freshman was inserted into the lineup and produced well, Kostick said.
A-State was the only to go undefeated on Friday and have now won at least six matches in every tournament they have competed in this season.
