Nicole Trudell (Coventry, R.I.) of the Sacred Heart bowling team was named to the 2014 Northeast Conference All-Tournament Team Monday afternoon. Despite the team's early exit after the first two rounds, the senior put forth impressive numbers.
A former All-American, Trudell averaged 21.36 pins per frame through SHU's two best-of-seven baker matches. Throwing an effective first ball, the 2014 All-NEC first team selection racked up 24 strikes in 27 attempts (.649).
Trudell hopes to lead her team to a national title in the final collegiate competition of her career at the USBC Intercollegiate Team Championship April 17-19 in Reno, Nev.
