'Dores remain fourth in NTCA poll

March 7, 2018

Vanderbilt maintained its position in the latest NCAA bowling rankings as did most members of the Top 10 as the National Ten Pin Coaches Association released its February 25 poll of head coaches.

The Commodores have been ranked fourth most of the year behind Nebraska, McKendree and Arkansas State. The poll shows Vandy's record as 65-38 but those figures don't take the March results into account; Vanderbilt is 77-38 heading into next week's Columbia 300 Music City Classic.

Twenty of the current Top 25 will be among the 32 teams competing in Smyrna Mar. 16-18 at the Smyrna Bowling Center. Play begins Friday at 9:40 a.m. (CDT). Saturday's play starts at 9:30 and Sunday's championship bracket begins at 8:30 a.m. Admission is free.
