LADY RATTLERS EYE 2018 MEAC BOWLING TITLE
By: Florida A&M Sports Information  
Release:03/20/2018

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Mar. 21) – The FAMU Women’s Bowling team will be riding a wave of confidence as they head to Virginia for the 2018 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Bowling Championships Friday through Sunday at the AMF Chesapeake Lanes in Chesapeake, Va.

Coach Karen Brown’s Lady Rattlers finished the regular season second place in the MEAC Southern Division at 11-7, while compiling a 40-25 overall record.

FAMU tied division winner North Carolina A&T for first place in the final of three divisional tournaments in February, which along with the team’s overall winning mark, has stirred the confidence of youth-laden group.

The FAMU Women will be looking for their first MEAC title, having made the final round twice, losing to perennial kingpin Maryland-Eastern Shore both times, including once in a playoff.

The Lady Rattlers have just one senior among the seven-person contingent heading North to represent the Orange and Green, with two of the remaining six being true freshmen.

Evanston, Illinois native Jazmine Aron is the team’s lone senior, and she has turned in a nifty 178.92 per-game average through 13 games, with a high game of 224 in the second MEAC Southern Divisional event in December at Tallahassee.

On the opposite end of the classification spectrum, the team’s two first-year performers – Keondra Eaton (Baton Rouge, La.) and Bethany Noel (Lawrenceville, Ga.) – have been among the club’s high rollers.

Eaton, finished the regular season with a 187.2 per-game average in 24 games with a club-best 244 high game in her collegiate debut event in New Orleans at the Allstate Sugar Bowl Classic in November.

Noel meanwhile, finished the campaign with a 177.1 per game average in 17 games, rolling a 233 high game in the Alabama State Hornet Classic in November.

Heading the list of sophomore performers for FAMU is Monique Ragland (Flint, Mich.), who has rolled a team-best 190.04  per-game average through 24 games, scoring a season high 232 in the MEAC Southern Divisional at Greensboro, N.C., in February.

Other FAMUans to look for this weekend include:

 Demetria Bethel from Piscataway, New Jersey, who brings a 176.66 game average (21 games) into this week’s tournament, having posted a 232 high game for the season in the MEAC Southern Divisional at Greensboro, N.C. last month.

Mikayla Davis of Valdosta, Ga., who holds a 165.56 per game average, with a high game of 219 in the December MEAC Southern Divisional event in Tallahassee.

Chicago, Illinois product Destiny Williams, who has a 166.75 per game average this season with a 200 high game in the AllState Sugar Bowl Classic in November.
