Valpo Opens Big Red Invitational Friday
Valpo opened the Big Red Invitational Friday.

The #RV Valparaiso University bowling team returned to competitive action for the first time in over a month on Friday, kicking off the Big Red Invitational in Lincoln, Neb.

How It Happened

  • Valpo opened Friday’s action, contested in the five-game baker format, against Drury, falling 977-925.
  • The Crusaders then earned their lone win on Friday as they took down #18 Maryville, defeating the Saints by a 941-867 final.
  • Valpo’s consistency continued in the day’s final two matches, as its four match scores all fell within a 30-pin span. But it wouldn’t be enough to overcome two of the nation’s best teams, as Valpo lost to #4 Arkansas State, 1051-955, and to #1 McKendree, 1069-926.
  • Valpo concluded the day in eighth place in the 10-team field, with its 3,747 total pins just 31 pins out of seventh position.
