The women’s bowling team came in fourth place out of six teams at the Metro Classic at Babylon’s AMF Lanes on Saturday, Feb. 17.
Junior biology major, Sarah Busse, led the Pioneers with a 182.8 average game, including a team-high 203 score. Freshman nursing major, Emily Cavanaugh, who was named ECC co-rookie bowler of the week, added a six-game series of 953 for a 158.8 average, while freshman business administration major, Patricia Kelly, added a total score of 939 for a 156.5 average.
After a second place finish on Jan. 21 at the Westchester Community College Invitational, the Pioneers lost their touch. They finished eleventh of 17 at the Red Flash Invitational on Jan. 26 and twelfth of 16 at the Golden Bear Classic on Feb. 11 before their most recent outing at the Metro Classic.
“Being down these past couple weeks has definitely been hard but we are going to just use that as fuel to dominate the next tournament,” Kelly said before the Metro Classic. “We are planning on coming back strong and we’re gonna do that by just staying locked in the whole day and picking up the spares.”
The Pioneers return to action on Saturday, Feb. 24 and will look to bounce back at the Molloy Invitational at AMF Lanes in Mineola.
