The Hudson Valley Community College women’s bowling team is ranked No. 2 in the initial NJCAA poll. Hudson Valley also is ranked No. 3 in the men’s poll.

The Lady Vikings, who finished second at last year’s NJCAA national championship tournament, only return one player from last year’s team. However, freshman Tia-Marie Stevens (Averill Park/Averill Park High School) has led Hudson Valley to a fast start. She recently finished first out of 27 bowlers at the Hawk Invitational in Utica to lead the Lady Vikings to a first place finish.

Hudson Valley’s men’s team captured the Columbia-Greene Invitational last Wednesday, January 25. Freshman Nick Harris (Latham/Shaker High School) rolled a 759 triple to lead the Vikings.
