The KU Men's Bowling Team finished 5th this weekend at the Backhaul Direct Hoosier Classic in Indianapolis, Indiana out of the 52 teams in attendance. The Jayhawks struggled in Day 1 and finished in 24th after 6 games. On Day 2, however, the team surged and rocketed up to 5th place at the conclusion of 9 games.
After the 9 team games, the Hoosier Classic takes the top 8 teams and pairs them up in Baker Match play to determine the overall winner. The Jayhawks were matched up against McKendreeCollege where they just fell short to the eventual tournament champions. Full results are posted below.
This tournament, coupled with the last, shows that the young Jayhawks are maturing and are getting closer to achieving their goals. Their last two performances will give them great momentum as they attempt to qualify for the National Championships through the Sectional Qualifiers in March.
