Feb. 28, 2017


The University of Maryland Eastern Shore rolled through Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference competition in Day 1 of one Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference North Meet No. 3, hosted by Coppin State University on Saturday.

Sunday brought more of the same as The Shore had its best MEAC competition of the year.

The Hawks (68-34, 19-5 MEAC) finished a perfect 4-0, Sunday as well grabbing all four Baker matches including a victory a second day in a row against a Delaware State team that had been a thorn in their side through the first two events.

The Shore topped Howard 1,001-919, then rolled Morgan State 1,057-870, beat the Hornets 973-926 and finished off the day with a 906-740 win against the host Eagles.

Sophomore Jacqueline Rhoda (Portage, Indiana) led all Hawks with a 198-pin average, marked at 82.4 percent despite an abnormally low strike percentage for her and converted 95.7 percent of her single pins.

Graduate student Thashaina Seraus (Oranjestad, Aruba) was second with a 197.0 average over two days. She marked at a 66.7 percent rate, put up a 49.6 percent trike percentage and converted all of her single-pin spares.

Junior Melanie Copey (Ontario, New York) averaged a 196, marked at 79.7 percent and struck 44.1 percent of the time.



Freshman Cayla Hicks (Richmond, Virginia) continued to play more like a veteran putting up a 188 average, a 79.8 percent mark rate, a 46.4 percent strike percentage and converted 86.6 percent of her single pins.

Junior Jalesa Johnson (Delmar, Delaware) averaged a 193, marked at 75.4 percent, strike percentage 42.1 and converted 83.3 percent of her single pins.

The team averaged a 194 with a 75.8 percent mark rate, a 44 percent strike rate and converted single pin spares 87.3 percent of the time.

The Hawks have at least three more events on the schedule including the USBC Sectionals (March 11,13), The Music City Classic (March 17-19), The MEAC Championships (March 24-26) and then hope to be heading to the NCAA Championships (April 13-15) and the USBC Championships (April 20-22).
