SFA Bowling Tabbed Ninth In The Nation
March 20, 2013
NASHVILLE, TN - The Stephen F. Austin Ladyjacks bowling team received their highest ranking in school history by the National Tenpin Coaches Association this week, coming in at ninth on the latest March national poll.
SFA (57-34) accumulated 308 adjusted points and were previously ranked 11th. NTCA voters rank the top 20 teams on their ballot. Each position has a designated point value, ranging from 32 points for first place and one point for twentieth place. To be ranked teams need to equal or surpass the minimum vote criteria, which is one vote for every eight ballots submitted. In this poll, three votes were necessary.
The actual ranking position is determined by using the adjusted point standings, which lists in priority order the total points a school has accumulated after the highest and lowest votes are dropped.
The Ladyjacks are coming off a ninth place finish at the Music City Classic in Smyrna, TN. in the regular season finale and will now wait for the NCAA Selection Show on March 24 at 3 p.m. (CT). The selection committee will look at total pinfall as well as strength of schedule to determine which eight teams will be selected. The NCAA Championships will be held from April 11-13.
