The Valpo bowling team concluded its final competition of the fall semester with the last of three days of action Sunday at the MOTIV Ladyjack Classic, hosted by Stephen F. Austin in Kenosha, Wis.
How It Happened
- Sunday’s action started with three more five-game Baker matches. The Beacons were matched up against a pair of top-five foes in the first two matches, falling 1087-899 to host #4 Stephen F. Austin and dropping a narrow 994-970 decision to #3 Nebraska.
- The trio of five-game Baker matches concluded with a 1039-909 loss to #25 Newman.
- Valpo closed the tournament on a high note in one final best-of-seven Baker match to determine final positioning, defeating Carthage 4-3. The Beacons won the opener before dropping the next two games, but rebounded with wins in games four and five. Carthage claimed game six to force a decisive seventh game, which Valpo emerged victorious in to finish the tournament in 11th place.
Valpo (16-25) will be off from intercollegiate competition for over two months. The Beacons return to the lanes for tournament action next Jan. 20-22 at the Peacocks Classic in Waterloo, Iowa.
