Through the five individual games that count total team pinfall, the Phoenix recorded 4313 pins and eclipsed a total game score of 900 once with a 902 in the fourth game.  The team finished with a baker total of 1986 pins across the 12 games

Three Cumberland bowlers finished in the top 50 individually, with Hattie Isham leading the way in 22nd with a 189 average, followed by Ali Davis in 23rd with a 187 average score. Taylor Higgins finished 45th with a 178.6 average across five games of bowling.
