PRINCESS ANNE, Md. - The University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) Women's Bowling Team is trying for another National Championship and Head Coach Sharon Brummell feels she knows what has been missing since they won in 2008, former Assistant Coach Doug Dukes. Brummell announced today that Dukes, the team's assistant coach for six seasons through the 2008-09 campaign will rejoin the program in the same capacity starting immediately.

Dukes will replace Megan Raymond who leaves the program and will concentrate on her photography career.

Dukes grew up in the sport of bowling and played an integral role in the 2007-08 NCAA Championship team. His primary responsibilities included conducting practice, ball layout, ball drilling and equipment modifications. He also played a vital role in increasing player awareness and lane playability when it came to game-day athletic performances.

In 2004, he helped guide the Lady Hawks to the first ever NCAA Championship appearance, and was on staff for the first six NCAA Tournament appearances.

UMES has also announced that Stacy Parsons (Delran, N.J.) has left the program and the University for personal reasons.

Dukes and the Lady Hawks return to the lanes Feb. 12 and 13 at the Capital Classic in Dover, Del.
