The Pioneers tallied a perfect 5-0 record last Saturday including a 942-910 win over 13th-ranked Lincoln Memorial University, TU's second victory over a nationally-ranked opponent in Tusculum's inaugural season.

Hunt bowled a 215 in the win over LMU and followed with a 239 later in a Tusculum win over Aurora University.

She had the highest frame average of any ECC rookie last week, compiling a mark of 19.43. Hunt filled 85 percent of her frames and compiled a 44.0 strike percentage.

The Pioneers (19-19) will travel to Greensboro, North Carolina this weekend for the Stallings Invitational, which is hosted by North Carolina A&T University.
