ADDISON, Ill. - Both the Huntington women and men’s teams competed in the 2017 USBC Intercollegiate Team Sectionals in Addison, IL. The tournament is open to any USBC registered collegiate program that is ranked as the top 80 men or top 64 women’s teams in the country. 

The top four teams in each division move on to the Intercollegiate Team Championships in Baton Rouge, LA. The sectional tournament format consists of 64 baker games over two days of competition.

The Huntington women finished 9th out 17 teams with a grand total of 11,634 pins for a 181 average. Their finish brings an end to their season.

“This is the last tournament for the ladies but I’m real happy with the progress that has been made this season,” said Coach Mike Shockey. “We are really young and the experience we gained this year is going to be invaluable going forward.” 

The Forester men’s team came home with an 11th place finish out of 23 teams with a total of 12,005 pins for a 187 average.

“The guys were disappointed with the outcome because we had our sights set on competing for one of the four spots to move on to the Intercollegiate Team Championships,” commented Shockey. “But the good news is that the men have qualified to compete at the NAIA Team Invitational Championships at the end of March.”

The NAIA Team Championships are slated for March 30-April 2.

The Huntington University Foresters compete in 17 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past decade, Huntington has produced 38 NAIA All-America honors and 254 All-America Scholar Athlete honors. Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations. U.S. News & World Report ranks Huntington among the best colleges in the Midwest.
