LOUISVILLE, Ky.-- The Cumberland Men's Bowling team competed at the Mid-South Conference Lynne Jordan Memorial Tournament on Saturday, finishing 19th overall.

The one-day tournament was the first-ever, named in memoriam of the late Cumberland bowling coach Lynne Jordan. The tournament consisted of 24 teams competing in 12 baker games and five team games where the bowlers individual scores contributed to the team total.

Cumberland finished 19th out of the 24 teams with a total pinfall of 6418 over the entire event. Tennessee Southern took first with a total pinfall of 7619 on the day, followed by SCAD Savannah in second with a total score of 7467 pins.

Through the five individual games that count total team pinfall, the Phoenix recorded 4307 pins and eclipsed a total team score of 900 once with a 988 in the fifth game. The team finished with a baker total of 2111 pins across the 12 games.

Cumberland is back at it again tomorrow in Louisville in the Mid-South Conference Thomas N. Burris Memorial Tournament. The tournament features the same format as Saturday's competition.
