UMES ANNOUNCES ITS 2013-2014 BOWLING SCHEDULE
Oct. 10, 2013
PRINCESS ANNE, Md. - The University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) Women's Bowling team has released its 2013-2014 schedule, which will feature the same competitive type of schedule that Hawk fans have become used to while including new event for the Hawks.
New head coach Kayla Bandy opens her tenure with UMES on November 1-3 with the Fairleigh Dickinson University New Jersey Jamboree, which was cancelled last year due to Hurricane Sandy.
The following weekend they attend their first of three Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) events, this one in Dover, DE. UMES then hosts their home event, the Hawk Classic Invitational at Millsboro Lanes, in Millsboro, Del from November 15-17, sponsored by Brunswick.
The Hawks bowl just once in December, the 7-8 at a MEAC match in Hampton, Va.
In 2014 UMES returns to the lanes for five events, starting with a tournament they won last year, the Kutztown Invitational, from January 24-26. The following weekend the Hawks head to Arlington, Texas for the Prairie View Invitational. After a weekend off from competition, the Hawks head back to Texas, this time to Houston, to attend their first ever Kat Klash from February 14-16.
The last MEAC match of the regular season will be bowled on March 1-2 in Baltimore, Md. The following weekend UMES goes to their last NCAA event of the regular season, the Music City Classic in Smyrna, Tenn. The USBC Sectional Qualifier, which will be March 14-16 at a location still to be determined, rounds out the regular season for the Hawks.
The postseason for UMES kicks off with the MEAC Championships held from March 21-23, where they look to defend their conference title. After a couple weeks off, the Hawks plan to attend the NCAA Championships which will be held from April 10-12 in Cleveland, Ohio, where they plan to avenge a third place finish at last year's competition. The Hawks then hope to close out their year at the USBC Intercollegiate Team Championships, held in Reno, Nev. on April 15-18, for their chance at back-to-back titles.
