Buchanan and Welch Earn NTCA All-Region Recognition

April 13, 2022

JONESBORO, Ark. (4/13/22) – Brooklyn Buchanan and Faith Welch of the Arkansas State women’s bowling team were recognized by the National Ten Pin Coaches Association (NTCA) as All-Region selections, the organization announced Wednesday.
The all-region teams are a result of voting by participating head coaches. The NTCA will announce its traditional All-America teams Thursday ahead of the National Collegiate Bowling Championship.
Buchanan, a First Team All-Central Region choice, finished the regular season ranked second in the PCPI index at 96.015 percent. The PCPI index is a measure that combines the identified categories “percentage of competitors that a bowler has outperformed” within that category. The anchor bowler throughout much of the 2021-22 season, Buchanan rolled a traditional average of 210.4 and a Baker average of 213.5 for an overall average of 212.4. She carried a strike percentage of 54.2 percent with an average first ball of 9.20.
Welch, an Honorable Mention All-Central Region pick, ranked 19th national in the PCPI index at 89.135 percent. Bowling in the four spot of the lineup the majority of the season, Welch bowled 835 frames for a traditional average of 210.9 and a Baker average of 203.8 to average 206.5 overall. She posted a strike percentage of 52.3 percent and averaged 9.10 on the first ball.
