[pullquote]I’m proud of the team’s hard work thus far for this season. All season[/pullquote]The North Carolina A&T bowling team picked up some votes in the National Tenpin Coaches Association ranking on Dec. 15, after wrapping up the first half of the season with a 16-12 overall record and a 10-6 record in the MEAC Southern Division.

“What’s great is that this poll is done by our peers, so to be recognized in the preseason poll with some votes was a great honor.  But to not only continue getting votes but get a larger number of votes during this poll, it’s an even better feeling,” said A&T Head Coach James Williams.

Three MEAC schools are ranked in the Top 20 by NTCA Coaches: Maryland Eastern Shore is second with a 30-3 record; Norfolk State is 14th with a 25-13 record; and Bethune-Cookman is 19th with a 22-19 record.

“I’m proud of the team’s hard work thus far for this season. All season, I’ve been telling the team, that they were a Top 20 team,” said Williams. “Though making it into the Top 20 was not one of the team goals that was set this year, it shows that it’s a byproduct of achieving the other goals that we have set forth.”

The Aggies will return to the lanes for the Bowie State/Frederick Underwood Bowling Classic at Bowie, Md. from Jan. 18-20, 2013.  They will compete in five regular season tournaments in the spring.
