Story by Tulane Media RelationsORLANDO, Fla. – Tulane senior Tiera Gulum became the first Green Wave bowler in program history to roll a perfect 300 game to highlight an eighth-place finish for the ninth-ranked team in the country at the Sunshine State Winter Classic this weekend in Orlando. “A tough weekend on the lanes. We didn’t execute shots well enough to keep up with the field. The team performed well on Saturday with the help of Tiera’s 300 game and Hailee’s 251 average for the last two games,” head coach Hayley Veitch said. I am proud of the seniors for tepping up. Overall we need to get mentally stronger to perform to our potential.” The Green Wave sat in 10th place after the first day of competition completed on Friday in Orlando, going 3-2 in Baker matches and knocking down a total of 4,664 pins.
