Miller (Denver, Pa./Cocalico) dominated the Traditional matches on Saturday, winning MVP honors by finishing with the top total pinfall on the day. She finished with the second best five-match total in program history, bowling a 1,084 for a 216.80 average on the day.
Freshman KC Miller was two pins away from bowling all five matches with a score of 200 or more, finishing with the second best five-match total in program history with a 1,084 pin-fall (216.80 average). She had her second-best match of her season with a 236 against #21 Adelphi, adding games of 225 against Kutztown, 213 against Coppin State, and a 212 against Felician.
