Senior Lauren Marks (Parsippany, N.J.) has been named Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Bowler of the Year by the league's coaches, the Conference announced today. Additionally, she was selected to the All-Conference First Team.

Marks has been one of the league's most consistent bowlers throughout the season, leading the Cougars in average in both team (19.73 per frame) and Baker (19.68) formats, serving as the Cougars' anchor all season.

She led Caldwell to the top seed in this weekend's CACC Tournament, posting the highest average in the field (209.4) in the CACC Invitational #2 earlier this month, as CU won seven of 10 matches for a 15-5 overall CACC mark this season.

Marks also had impressive showings at numerous other events this year, recording 22.71 per frame (Baker) at the Wildcat DII, DII Invite in February, 21.23 (Baker) this past weekend at the Northeast Roundup and consistent 19 or better frame averages in five events in Team and five in Baker format during the season.

Marks, with a 3.95 GPA in Studio Art, was a CACC All-Academic, First Team All-Conference and All-Tournament Team performer last year when the Cougars won the league championship.

The Cougars take on the winner of No. 4 Chestnut Hill vs. No. 5 Bloomfield in the double-elimination portion of the CACC Championships on Friday in Southampton, Pa. Play continues through Sunday.
