William Penn 14th at Hoosier Classic


In its final Tier 1 event of the regular season, the Statesmen men’s bowling team performed well at the Backhaul Direct Hoosier Classic Saturday and Sunday.
The Statesmen placed 14th out of 78 teams with a nine-game tally of 8,734 pins, missing qualifying for bracket play by two spots and just 78 pins.  Robert Morris (Ill.) was the top qualifier with 9,368 pins, but was upset by No. 9 seed Fresno State in the quarterfinals. Fresno State reached the championship, but fell to second-seeded Webber International (Fla.) 4-3.
Colin Champion of Webber International earned his namesake by winning qualifying with a 223.2 average (2,009 pins), only five pins ahead of Marshall Kent of Robert Morris.
William Penn utilized the minimum of five bowlers starting in nine games each. Jacques Kaune paced the Statesmen with a 200.8 average (1,807 pins) to place 30th.
Cameron Foster was next with a 197.1 clip, while Drew Balta had a 195.4 mark.
Brandon Barboza averaged 192.1 pins, and Piet Schaeffer posted a 185.0 tally.
William Penn will take this weekend off, concluding its regular season on March 1-2 by traveling to Cedar Rapids for the Midwest Collegiate Conference Championships.
