Bowling Gets Another Taste of Top 25 Opposition at Northeast Classic

New Castle, Del. – A tough challenge followed another for the Adelphi University bowling team, which competed this weekend at the Northeast Classic at Bowlerama in New Castle.

The marks turned for the better for the Panthers, whose averages climbed a full point higher from last week in both the Baker (163.9) and traditional competitions (163.6).

In the two Baker matches that the ‘Cats exceeded an 800 series, Adelphi rolled a 200 game to close the gap against Division I opponents LIU and Morgan State.

The Brown and Gold set a season-high with 41 strikes in the five Baker matches. Blanca Fraticelli and Carly Wu each threw nine strikes, and Tiffany Wong followed with eight.

Adelphi ended the weekend strong, prevailing by over 100 pins against Chestnut Hill and knocking off NJCU and Norfolk State in best-of-seven Baker matches.

Each of Adelphi’s five starters averaged better than a 160.0 in the traditional format, headlined by Fraticelli’s 175.6. She and freshman starter Brianna Tringali — who averaged a 168.4 — both exceeded a fill rate of over 70.0 percent.

Giana Giampapa converted 80.0 percent of her single-pin spare attempts, en route to averaging a 160.9. Wu and Wong produced clips of 163.4 and 162.7, respectively.

Head Coach Arthur O’Connor and the Panthers are headed to the New Jersey Open this weekend (Jan. 26-28) at 30 Strikes Lanes in Stratford, N.J.
