Men Compete at NAIA Invitational
Crimson Wave Men's Bowling3/29/14 -
The Crimson Wave men’s bowling team competed in the NAIA Invitational Team Championships March 28th-30th at Brunswick Zone Vernon Hills Illinois. This end of season event brings together the top twenty NAIA men’s teams from around the country. The first day consists of 24 baker games of total pinfall. This qualifying round gives the top twelve teams a first round bye and determines which team has lane choice throughout the matches.

CCSJ had a good qualifying round finishing third overall. Junior Mitch Katic was injured and was replaced by freshman Lucas Ferrando. Lucas was joined by Ryan Burks, Matt Kuba, Dakota Daniels, Ryan McCoy, Jacob Grams, Joe Bowers, and Jake Hayes. This was roster is the most unique CCSJ has ever had with three lefties. CCSJ went up against Lawrence Tech University in their first match. CCSJ would start slow but then really got it going in the tenth frame of the first game. Sophomore Matt Kuba would make his ten pin spare and Lawrence Tech would miss theirs which gave momentum to CCSJ who just steam rolled Lawrence Tech three games to none, winning the next two games by 40 and 39 pins.
Lawrence Tech bowled 198, 236, 164 and Calumet College of St. Joseph bowled 203, 276, and 203.

Up next for CCSJ was Webber International who is ranked second in the nation. CCSJ and Webber International have great history against each other. This match was where CCSJ missed Jr Mitch Katic who routinely bowls the tough tenth frame.

Neither team could win two games in a row. In the first game, Matt Kuba struggled in the anchor spot as the Crimson Wave fell to Webber International. CCSJ bounced back to win the second game and it was a seesaw battle from there. This brought CCSJ to game five and the three lefties all had good looks to the pocket. Coach Kubacki decided to go to senior leader Ryan McCoy. This game had three lead changes and was well bowled. Unfortunately, Ryan made great first shots but was unable to strike. Many of these matches do come down to making spares. CCSJ fell to Webber International. Webber International scored 170, 213, 206, 165, and 219 while Calumet College of St. Joseph scored 160, 222, 174, 214, and 202.

With the tough loss to Webber, CCSJ would then bowl number one qualifier St. Ambrose and again would lock up in a tough five game match. CCSJ would bowl even better than they did against Webber but St. Ambrose made some lineup changes for games four and five as their bench provided a huge lift. Again, game five had three lead changes and CCSJ was doing well through the first five frames but would leave three splits in a row in the sixth, seventh, and eighth frames as CCSJ would eliminated from the double elimination tournament. St. Ambrose scored 217, 210, 159, 230, and 244 while Calumet College of St. Joseph scored 224, 206, 223, 210, and 200. This elimination placed CCSJ 11th out of the twenty teams competing. CCSJ competed well and more importantly, conducted themselves with good sportsmanship and character. 

The Crimson Wave will return to action for the ISC and ITC in Reno, Nevada April 13th-19th.
