WHITEWATER, WI (12/07/2012)(readMedia)-- The Warhawk women bowlers, ranked 14th in the National Tenpin Coaches Association Top 20 preseason poll, have finished in the top five in every competition this season. Head Coach Leann Eimermann is excited to see how far her team can go.

"This is the first season that we have a chance to make it to the NCAA Nationals because the women have the experience and talent needed to compete with the top teams in the nation," Eimermann said.

Coach Eimermann looks for solid performances from her players, including Kayla Betz, a junior biology major from Sterling, Ill.

"Bowling competition is a little unique as all three divisions compete together. Currently there are about 70 schools and about five total Division III programs involved," said Eimermann.

UW-Whitewater traveled to the Track Kat Klash Nov. 30-Dec. 2 at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. The Warhawks finished second in a field of 16.

The Warhawk bowlers will compete Jan. 11-12 in the Mid-Winter Classic in Jonesboro, Ark.
