LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Union College posted a total pin fall of 6,427 at the BTM Striking Knights Classic in Louisville, Ky., to place 18th over the weekend.

The Lady Bulldogs posted a 4,085 pin fall in five games Saturday before tallying 2,342 in 16 Baker games Sunday to give them a total count of 6,247. There were a total of 25 teams.

"I though this was our best performance of the year," said Union coach Matt Mahony. "Haley (McDowell) and Christen (Havens) both had their best performances of the year. Kayleen (Hiatt) could not get her strikes going at all on Saturday, but she battled all day and shot two clean game and made 76 percent of her spare shots. She showed unbelievable focus and determination."

Havens (Gallatin, Tenn.) led the team with a 178.8 average with Christy King (Hendersonville, Tenn.) helping out with a 175.2 average. Hiatt (Kettering, Ohio) rolled a 174.6 average and posted a team-best high game of 227, while McDowell (Lexington, Ky.) averaged 168.4. Ariel White (Tazewell, Tenn.) averaged 120.0 on the day.

Union returns to action Friday and Saturday at the National Team Match Games in Fairview Heights, Ill.
