HOUSTON, Texas – Arkansas State won the final day of the Sam Houston State Kat Klash Invitational by recording a total pinfall of 4,175 and registering a 5-0 record Sunday in Houston, Texas.

The Red Wolves (74-22) began the day with a 778-688 win over UAB and a very close victory over Wisconsin-Whitewater by one pin, 802-801.  Arkansas State continued its winning ways with victories against Texas Southern (819-748) and Louisiana Tech (967-823) before finishing the tournament with an 809-760 win against Nebraska.

A-State won all three of the one-day events that made up the tournament and finished with a total pinfall of 15,449 along with a record of 15-1.

“This was the best tournament we’ve had since I’ve been coaching here,” A-State women’s bowling coach Justin Kostick said.  “I’m very proud of the team and I’m excited about the direction we’re heading in.”

Sarah Lokker and Ashley Rucker finished first and second in the individual standings for the second consecutive tournament.  Lokker took MVP honors with a total pinfall of 1,408 for an average of 234.67 and Rucker secured a spot on the all-tournament team by finishing 12 pins behind Lokker with a total pinfall of 1,396 for an average of 232.67.

“I’m very proud of Sarah and Ashley for making back-to-back all-tournament teams,” Kostick added.  “Finishing first and second on consecutive weekends is pretty impressive.”
