Hawks rebound on second day of MEAC North Meet No. 1
Nov. 15, 2016

PRINCESS ANNE, Maryland - Following a day of competition on Saturday that they'd rather forget, the Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks Bowling squad rebounded to win all four of their Baker matches on Sunday to finish 5-3 in the meet.

"After what seemed like a Doomsday Saturday, Sunday was a good day," head coach Kayla Bandy said. "We absorbed Saturday for what it was and came back swinging Sunday. After days like Saturday, there's really no need to point fingers or focus on the number of things that went wrong. Insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result, we agreed to implement a few changes and went on with the competition."

Thashaina Seraus (Oranjestad Aruba) paced the Hawks again Sunday. She filled 34 of 40 frames on Sunday -- including 19 of 20 key 10th frames in Baker competition. Seraus was one of the few bright spots on Saturday posting a 195.5 average (2 games over 200) in four games on where she filled 37 of 40 frames. She finished the weekend with a 40 percent strike percentage.

"Sunday we got back to communicating well, filling frames, and playing the game," Bandy said. "Fill the frames and the outcome is a little easier to accept. Quality shots were a lot more abundant Sunday, which helped our second shot success rate immensely.

Freshman Cayla Hicks (Richmond, Virginia) was the breakout star of Sunday competition.



"She stepped up with a big day filling frames for her team," Bandy said. "Just like in Orlando, the Freshmen class means business She and Brigitte Jacobs (Freeport, Illinois) have been instrumental to our success so far this season. Cayla filled 36-of-40 frames Sunday. Struck 14-of-40 frames and made 14-of-14 single pins Sunday in Baker."

Kaci Collins (Mint Hill, North Carolina) had a high game of 226 on Saturday, Quianna Macares (Willemstad, Curacao) had a 214 and Jalesa Johnson (Delmar, Delaware) added a 211 and a 204.

"I also commend Quianna's effort this weekend," Bandy said. "She threw the ball amazing and gave us 100 percent every shot. She and Kaci bowled well Saturday despite the team's performance. It's nice to see their hard work paying off."

The Shore will host the Hawk Classic Friday through Sunday (Nov. 18-20) at Millsboro Lanes.
