BOWLING : Arkansas State goes 4-1 on day 1 of Mid-Winter Invitational

JONESBORO, Ark. -- Arkansas State women’s squad recorded a 4-1 record in the first day of competition at its host tournament, the Mid-Winter Invitational, at the Jonesboro Bowling Center on Friday afternoon.

The Red Wolves ended the day tied for the second most wins with Central Missouri and McKendree and are sixth in the total pinfall standings with a mark of 4,884.  A-State is only 33 pins behind fifth-place Vanderbilt (4,917) and 37 pins behind fourth-place Stephen F. Austin (4,921). Nebraska currently leads the field with a total pinfall of 5,069 and a 5-0 record, while Central Missouri (4,994) and Sam Houston State (4,961) round out the top three.

“We went 4-1 today and you’ll take that any day, but we have got to improve in pinfall,” A-State head coach Justin Kostick said.  “We missed several spares today so we need to get that cleaned up tomorrow if we’re going to move up in the standings.”

Arkansas State began its day with a 1,015-978 win against Stephen F. Austin and registered a 917-793 win against Elmhurst in its second match. The Red Wolves squared off against Bethune-Cookman in their third match and recorded a 932-884 win against the Wildcats before winning their fourth consecutive match of the day against Wisconsin-Whitewater by a count of 1,066-877.

Coming into its last match of the day 4-0, A-State had the challenge of taking on the only other team to go 4-0 in its first four matches, Nebraska, in its final match of the day. The Red Wolves and Cornhuskers both shot 183 in the first Baker game, but Nebraska proved to be too powerful the rest of the way and recorded its first win in five tries this season against Arkansas State by a score of 994-954.
