The Nebraska bowling team moved from sixth place into second-place on day two of the Big Red Invitational at Sun Valley Lanes in Lincoln. The Huskers bowled four traditional team games over the course of the afternoon and were able to jump up four places. The Huskers currently trail only Central Missouri in the standings, while Vanderbilt sits in third-place.
Danielle Van Der Meer had the high average after the four team games with an average of 221. Her 884 total pinfall was the second-highest pinfall of the day, behind Central Missouri's Kara Richard, who had a 932 pinfall through her four games. Van der Meer's high game of 247 was not the highest game rolled by a Husker though. Kayla Stram, in one of her two games of the day, shot a 268. Strams score was the second highest game of the day, following Maryland Eastern Shore's Paula Vilas' 279 game. Stram averaged 236.50 through her two games.
Along with van der Meer and Stram, Jasmine Laugerman had a total average of over 200, with her 202.50 average.
The Huskers will take to the lanes tomorrow morning at 8 a.m. for the third and final day of the Big Red Invitational. The Huskers will finish the round robin with three rounds of 4 of 7 baker matches. The event will wrap up at noon with the trophy ceremony and all-tournament team announcement. The all-tournament team will consist of the ten bowlers with the highest per game average.
