FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. - The weekend proved to be a fruitful one for the Fayetteville State University bowling team.

The Lady Broncos went 13-0 at B&B Bowling Lanes in their first CIAA event, averaging a 962 as a team in matches on Friday and Saturday before rolling through the baker round on Sunday.

Megan Maynor averaged a 200.2 for the weekend, the fourth-highest total of all bowlers. She had a high score of 247 and rolled five 200 games in 10 played.

De'Andrea Bethea finished with a 193.5, good for seventh place. Also in the top 10 was Ashley Cooper, who averaged a 10th-place 190.4.

Bowie State's Shayla Lightfoot had the weekend's best performance, averaging a 224.7. After going 4-0 on Friday (the Shaw match didn't count as a victory due to Shaw's forfeit), the Lady Broncos again swept through South Division opposition on Saturday. FSU started the day off with a 969 against Shaw, which again forfeited.

Against St. Augustine's, the Lady Broncos rolled a 1,001 in a 1,001-703 victory. It was the fourth 1,000-pin match out of 10 for FSU. The Lady Broncos rolled a 900 or better in all but one match over the two days. FSU followed that performance up with easy victories against Livingston College (928-596), Johnson C. Smith University (918-610) and Winston-Salem State University (893-761).

Out of 50 individual games rolled on Friday and Saturday, FSU had 21 200-pin performances. All five bowlers averaged at least a 188.7 for the weekend.

On Sunday, the Lady Broncos won baker matches against Livingstone College (786-466), Shaw (750-513), Johnson C. Smith (731-492), St. Augustine's (698-552) and Winston-Salem State (702-606).

"I think the girls bowled exceptionally well," FSU coach Bobby Henderson said. "They bowled far beyond what I thought they'd bowl for their first match. I never dreamed everybody would bowl as good as they bowled the first match.

"I was very proud of what they did. They did outstanding team wise; I just hope they continue throughout the rest of the season."

FSU is now off until 2014. Then, the Lady Broncos play another divisional weekend in Petersburg, Va., on January 24.
