Head Coach Joseph Ambrose:
- “It was awesome to lead our team in the first-ever competition here at Wagner. To get our first win today against a top-10 program and a school who is currently first in the NTCA Power Index Ranking, is a tremendous milestone for our athletes and our program,” head coach Joe Ambrose said.”
On the team’s tone and emotions this afternoon…
- “Our teams works really well together and there wasn’t a hint of hesitation in helping one another today. Their selflessness was instrumental in us having a great first day on the lanes.”
On adjustments made from following the traditional match…
- “We really didn’t have to adjust too much after the first match. Mount St. Mary’s bowled great. We did make a few lineup adjustments in baker, which worked out very well.”
- “In match three, we couldn’t execute on the changing lanes and will have to do a better job of that on Friday, but, overall, it was a very successful first day in the history of the Wagner bowling program.”
- Wagner will be back on the lanes Friday afternoon for the first-ever Seahawk Invite, in which the Seahawks will face off against the same Mountaineers and the LIU Sharks.
