Bowling Makes Early Splash Atop ECC Preseason Poll


West Babylon, N.Y. – The Adelphi University women’s bowling team is sitting atop the 2022-23 East Coast Conference Preseason Coaches’ Poll, which was announced Friday afternoon.

A well-deserved preseason ranking for the Panthers, who enter this year as the defending runner-up to the ECC crown.

With two ECC All-Conference bowlers having graduated, Adelphi still has two ECC All-Conference selections on the returning roster in Blanca Fraticelli and Kristen Derr.

Fraticelli took home ECC Rookie of the Year and All-ECC Second Team honors in 2021-22, while DerrΒ also earned inclusion on the All-ECC Second Team.

Among the ten teams making up the conference, Adelphi received half of the first-place votes and 87 points to headline the poll. Mercyhurst ran a close second with 84 points and three first-place votes.

The Panthers’ quest for an ECC Championship begins next weekend (Oct. 15-16) in Fairfield, Conn. at the Sacred Heart University Bowl for a Cure.
