JSU Lady Tigers make history, bring home first SWAC Bowling Championship (1140 hits)

by Jackson State University

The Jackson State University Lady Tigers Bowling Team made history by defeating Prairie View A&M University, 4-2 (Match 11), to win their first-ever bowling championship at the SWAC Tournament on Sunday, March 27, at the International Training and Research Center in Arlington, Texas.

The Lady Tigers went undefeated (7-0) after the first two days of competition to score a spot in the championship match. They would finish the tournament with a Game Six score of 278. That score was the highest of the entire championship game.

Junior bowler, Briana Reid, scored Most Valuable Bowler after leaving only one frame open out of 11 games. She was the only bowler on the team to remain clean the entire second match.

Jackson State dropped its first game of the tournament, falling 1-4, to Prairie View (156, 128, 174, 210, 169 to 202, 203, 169, 211, 178 ) in the first match of the day (Match 10).

The Lady Tigers rebounded in Match 11 and defeated the Panthers 4-2 (195, 168, 216, 181, 170, 278 to 181, 160, 162, 211, 184, 224) to claim the 2016 SWAC Championship Title.

JSU swept the first three games in the second match, but allowed the Lady Panthers to take the fourth by a difference of 30 pins and the fifth by 14.

The sixth game opened with each team throwing strikes – a total of six before breaking the streak. Both teams would continue the game tied until the top of the sixth frame when Reid rolled a strike to pull the Lady Tigers ahead by two pins.

This is head coach Michael Boykins’ first SWAC Championship title in his three years at JSU.
