(WDAY Sports) - We've got a new twist for you on one of WDAY's most classic sporting events.

Sunday, we'll bring you the finals of the WDAY/WDAZ Bowling Classic and a lady is the talk of the tourney.

Emily Peterson won the local qualifier at Sunset Lanes to earn a spot in the field. She's just the fourth woman ever to make the tourney and the NDSU senior knows they'll be more attention on her.

“I think the eyes will be on me a little bit. There's a female out here, let's see what she can do, but being from the NDSU team, I get that a lot at the tournaments. The guys watching and complimenting me, so it's pretty normal.”

There are eight former champions in the event, which you can see on Sunday night at 11:05 here on WDAY.
