Louisville, Ky. - Campbellsville University Harrodsburg bowling traveled to Executive Lanes to start the 2018-19 season by competing in the Thomas Burris Memorial. This was the first event for the Maroon and White in the history of the CU Harrodsburg bowling program.
The memorial was set up with the Tigers first bowling in five team games followed by 12 Baker games, where one bowler bowls a frame of the game in a rotation.
Trevor Collins and Tanner Cox led the Tigers throughout the team games. Collins and Cox each bowled 157 in game 1. Collins continued to lead in game 2 bowling a 201 with Cox just behind him with a 187. Cox was the top bowler for the Maroon and White in the third and fourth games with a 174 followed by a 184.
William Rayens was the top Tiger in the final game of team play with a 213. He finished game 5 on five straight strikes and a spare in the tenth frame.
In all, CU Harrodsburg knocked down 5594 pins over the course of the team games.
The Baker games saw the Maroon and White start slow with a 140 and a 148. By game 3 the Tigers found their stride bowling 190 in the third game, 197 in the fifth game, and 193 in the sixth game.
"This first tournament was mainly a learning experience," said Adam Voth, head bowling coach at CU Harrodsburg. "This was not only the first collegiate tournament for CU Harrodsburg, but the first collegiate tournament for all of the bowlers. Three of them have never bowled in any type of competition. We will take what the team and I have learned and work hard for the next two weeks before we go to the Western Shootout."
CU Harrodsburg bowling travels to Indianapolis, In. for the Western Shootout on Oct. 20.
