In a best-of-seven format, McKendree jumped out to a 3-2 lead and forced the Commodores to stage a comeback to stave off a loss at Tropicana Lanes in St. Louis.

The Commodores took Game 6 thanks in part to a clutch 10th frame from Maria Bulanova, extending the contest to a Game 7. There, Vanderbilt drilled four straight strikes to build a lead it wouldn't relinquish.

The NCAA championship is the second in Vanderbilt bowling history and second for head coach John Williamson. The title is the fourth national championship in Vanderbilt athletics history.
