The bowling team returned to the lanes for the first time since Dec. 1 at the Westchester Community College Invitational at Farmingdale Lanes in Farmingdale, New York on Jan. 21. Bowling, both a fall and spring sport, faced off against a number of teams including Molloy College, Suffolk Community College, St. Thomas Aquinas, and Westchester Community College in the invitational.
Junior biology major Sarah Busse led the Pioneers with a six-game total of 1,080, including a high game of 235 for a 180 average on the day. Freshmen business administration major Patricia Kelly and freshman nursing major Emily Cavanaugh added six-game totals of 1,067 and 1,053 of their own. Freshman clinical lab science major Pamela Penso added a high game of 183, while sophomore special education major Alexis Kosakavich had a high game of 162.
Kelly and Cavanaugh captured second place in the doubles competition, compiling a three-game total of 1,088, while Busse and Kosakavich finished fifth with a total of 1,006.
Busse and Kelly’s success earned the two bowlers a spot on the all- tournament team for the day.
“I definitely think we could have done better,” Kelly said. “We came in second for the day but could have came in first if we picked up a few more spares. Something the team can improve on is our spares — having a good spare game is crucial in our sport, and it is spares that separate the great bowlers from the weak bowlers.”
The bowling team next travels to Altoona, PA on Friday, Jan. 26 to participate in the Red Flash Invitational.
