Dover, Del. (Dec. 7, 2017) --- The Delaware State bowling team has climbed to No. 6 in the latest National Tenpin Coaches Association Top 25 poll released this week, up six spots from its preseason ranking and tops among Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference teams.
This is Delaware State’s highest ranking since holding the No. 3 spot in the February 2010 poll, the best in team history. That season, DSU won its second straight MEAC championship and competed in the NCAA Tournament for the second year in a row.
The Hornets are 39-14 overall and 14-2 in the MEAC Northern Division this season.
The University of Nebraska is No. 1 in the latest poll, followed by McKendree (Ill.), Arkansas State, Vanderbilt and Sam Houston State.
Defending MEAC champ Maryland-Eastern Shore is seventh in the poll and MEAC South member North Carolina A&T is No. 17.
The DSU bowling team has completed its fall semester schedule. The Hornets are idle until Jan. 19 at the three-day Kutztown Invitational.
The next MEAC North competition is Feb. 24-25 in Washington, D.C. The Hornets could clinch their second straight division title that weekend.
