Buchanan and Welch Named NTCA All-Americans

April 14, 2022

JONESBORO, Ark. (4/14/22) – 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-America selections, the organization announced Thursday.
 
The All-America teams are a result of voting by participating head coaches. The NTCA announced its traditional All-America teams Thursday ahead of the National Collegiate Bowling Championship in Columbus, Ohio.
 
Buchanan, a First Team All-America 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. It marks the ninth time an A-State bowler has earned First Team All-America honors.
 
Welch, an Honorable Mention All-America 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.
 
A-State has had at least one All-America choice every year since the program began in the 2004-05 season. This is the 13th season, 11th consecutive, that the Red Wolves have had multiple All-America picks. The Red Wolves have 39 NTCA All-Americans in program history, fourth-most among any program.
