Zink Named to All-Rookie Team For Women’s Bowling

Sophomore Holly Zink (Port Jefferson, N.Y./Earl Vandermeulen) was named to the 2012 Northeast Conference Bowling All-Rookie team as Monmouth wrapped up the 2012 NEC Bowling Championships Saturday in Reading, Pa.

The Hawks entered the tournament as the eighth-seed, faced the daunting task of bowling against the top-seeded and 2010 NCAA National Champion Farleigh Dickinson Knights. FDU prevailed but the road didn’t get much easier for MU which had to then bowl fourth-seeded Kutztown which was upset by fifth-seeded New Jersey City University in the opening round. Monmouth’s season ended.

“We put up some decent numbers but unfortunately we fell short,” said second year head coach Karen Grygiel.

The MU bowling team, which his in its second year of existence, finished the season with a 50-60 record and were ranked 19th in the latest National Tenpin Coaches Association poll. Monmouth recorded eight wins against teams ranked in the top-10 this season.
