The Shore leaves Texas with fourth place finish
Nov. 5, 2017

HOUSTON, Texas -

The University of Maryland Eastern Shore finished 1-2 on the bracket day of competition on Sunday (Nov. 5) at the Track Kat Clash and finished the event in fourth place.

The Hawks opened with a loss to Arkansas State (4-1), followed that up with a win a 4-2 win against Sam Houston and then fell to Arkansas State again 4-2.

Eastern Shore bowled well in spurts keeping their average high, but weren't able to pull out enough games in each match to grab the wins. The Shore got out to a 2-1 lead in the second battle with Arkansas State, but dropped 233-229 third game and then faltered in the final two.

"The team averaged 200.5 today for 17 baker games," head coach Kayla Bandy said. "While losing two matches today is not ideal, I know that we have to focus on getting back to campus and working on the skills that will make us better. Every match was close and it's good that our student athletes are experiencing these pressure situations early in the season against quality teams."

The Hawks finished the Track Kat Klash with a 9-4 record and finished 7.4 pins off the per-game pace off of first-place Nebraska.

"It wasn't just one or two student athletes that were stepping up," Bandy said. "We were doubling, sometimes throwing three or more strikes in a row to win matches, which is something we can definitely build on moving forward."

The Hawks are now 16-9 overall on the young season.

Next time out for the Hawks will be for the first MEAC North meet of the season on Nov. 11-12 at a site still to be determined. Coppin State is the host team.
