Bowling Team Preps for Championships
The NHTI Co-Ed Bowling Team will be traveling to Lewiston, Maine over the weekend of April 12-13, 2014 for the Yankee Conference Championships. Team members include Meghan Masury (Captain), Matthew Komisarek, John Cann, Joseph Bohi, Daniel Curran, Amanda Basnar, Timothy Ford, Keith Warner, Lucas Sowa, Kendra Strong, Alex Hunt, Brody Glidden, Connor McLeod, and Tristan Burgess. The team is helmed by Head Coach Bobby Strong and Assistant Coach Nick Walton.
Meghan Masury is the two-time Defending Yankee Conference Champion Woman Bowler. Amanda (Mandy) Basnar was the recipient of the 2013 Most Improved Bowler award for NHTI.
Unlike most college sports, the bowling team does not participate in direct competition with other teams until the playoffs. Instead, the team starts bowling at the beginning of the season (in February), and turns in its scores to the conference coordinator, who posts them and ranks the bowlers.
On the men’s side, NHTI bowlers currently occupy 5 of the top 20 slots: Joe Bohi (189.4), Brody Glidden (168.0), Alex Hunt (160.0), Lucas Sowa (155.8), and Keith Warner (147.8). On the women’s side we occupy 4 of the top 20 spots: Meghan Masury (210.8), Brittany Adams (112.6), Mandy Basnar (102.8), and Kendra Strong (124.3). Currently these are the only team members who have qualified for the conference singles playoffs. There are also team playoffs in which all can participate.
Nacho Takes Gilmanton!
NHTI Runners competed in the Gilmanton 5K on March 29. This spring’s weather made the course conditions difficult, but 284 runners completed the race.
The NHTI runners did well. Nacho Hernando (left) won the race with a time of 17:02. Quinn Parker was 10th overall at 18:38, and Greg Keilig was 11th at 18:56. Other NHTI finishers were: Emmett Collins (35th at 22:12), Coach Perry Seagroves (37th at 22:35), Oscar Castillo (41st at 23:03), Coach Beth Wilkes (80th, 2nd in age group, at 25:38), and Professor Michael Moffett (168th at 31:24).
All of the above runners are gearing up for the big NHTI / Northeast Delta Dental 5K Race on April 18 at NHTI. This race benefits the Jen Kemp scholarship fund for NHTI students who excel in the classroom, perform community service, and are active in NHTI student life. Learn more about the race and sign up at www.nhti.edu/5k.
Now that the weather is warming up, think about running with the NHTI Running Club and run in the Dental Dental 5K on April 18. Contact Perry Seagroves, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Only four runners have participated in all nine previous NHTI / Northeast Delta Dental races.
