MDES picks up its ninth MEAC title all-time and its fourth in the last five seasons.

The Hawks dropped the first game of the best-of-seven Baker format, as North Carolina A&T State – the No. 2 seed following Friday’s traditional team play – edged the Hawks 175-170. From there, MDES came back to take a 193-188 win in the second game, thanks to three strikes in the final four rolls.

MDES, the No. 1 seed, took the momentum from there, winning the third game 170-165 and taking the fourth game 173-167.

A 188-165 decision in the fifth game gave the Hawks the title.

Two-time reigning MEAC Bowler of the Year Thashaina Seraus was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Performer, and Kayla Bandy was named the Most Outstanding Coach.
