PTHS Competitive Bowling Team received a second grant from the International Bowling Campus for 20 new bowling balls. These balls will be used for next year’s team, as KHSAA bowling season has just concluded.
Administered by International Bowling Campus (IBC) Youth Development, the High School Grant Program annually provides up to four grants to high schools to start a new bowling program or to assist existing programs in need of financial assistance because of budget cutbacks or other changes.
Paducah Tilghman High School’s bowling program is in its inaugural year of being a school-sponsored sport, after a year as a club sport. The club team drew 16 members, and the competitive program has grown to 24 players.
