Everett bowler competes at national tourney

Jordan Plunkett of Everett was a member of the Midland University bowling team that competed at last month’s Intercollegiate Team Championships in Lincoln, Neb.

The ITC featured the top 16 teams in the country. Midland posted a 2-2 record in the tournament, falling one victory shy of reaching the quarterfinals.

Plunkett, a junior, was one of the team’s major contributors. He entered the ITC with a 200 average over 53 games.

With the Warriors losing only one bowler from this year’s team, coach JJ Mastny said his team should be a national contender again next season.

“The experience they gained will make them a real threat next year,” Mastny said in a press release.

Midland University is located in Fremont, Neb.
