All-White Team From Predominantly Black University Wins National Collegiate Bowling Championship

The University of Maryland Eastern Shore, the historically black educational institution in Princess Anne, won the 2008 NCAA women’s bowling championship. The championship was a historic event. It is the first time in any sport that a team from a historically black university won an NCAA Division I championship.

There are 11 women on the university’s bowling team. Only one is black. The one black player did not compete in the national championship match. However, the team’s coach, Sharon Brummell, is an African American.
