WSU had a dominant week, setting a record qualifying score and going undefeated in match play, winning 16 of 18 games.

The Shockers opened the best-of-three championship match with three consecutive strikes, grabbing a lead they never relinquished. WSU won 232-154 and 226-177. Wichitan Josh McBride had strikes in three of his four frames.

The Wichita State women were eliminated in the semifinals by McKendree College.
