In its first appearance in a national championship, the North Carolina A&T women’s bowling team didn’t disappoint.
The Aggies were crowned the 2015 United States Bowling Congress (USBC) Intercollegiate Team Champions (ITC), Saturday afternoon with a 3-1 win over Robert Morris at Northrock Lanes in Wichita, Kansas.
The ITC, first contested in 1975, is the pinnacle event of the college bowling season. The ITC brings together the top 16 men’s and top 16 women’s teams in the country to compete for national titles. They are mostly the top teams who came up short in their conference championships. USBC is the national governing body of bowling as recognized by the United States Olympic Committee.
“Accomplishing this goal was huge,” said head coach James Williams whose team finished the season 74-37. “With all of the individual awards from this year, it is awesome that the team accomplished this because no one ever remembers the individual accomplishments. But they remember the best team. This is something that no one can take from us. We will forever be national champions.” Read more
