Boys' Varsity Bowling

Lipscomb Academy has had a strong bowling program since it began in 2002. As a team and individual sport, over the years, we have had both teams and individuals go onto the TSSAA state tournament to compete with some of the best high school bowlers in the state of Tennessee. Bowling is a lifetime sport that you can take with you throughout adulthood. 

“Being on the Lipscomb Academy bowling team has been one of the best experiences I have had in high school. We have all become best friends, and we encourage each other through everything. Being able to go so far last year with this team really helped us all bond and showed us that this year we can excel even further. I am so thankful for being on such an amazing team with friends I will keep for many years to come.” High School Junior Bowler

Congratulations to both our boys' and girls' bowling teams for securing a spot in the TSSAA State Bowling Tournament on January 23-25, 2020, in Smyrna, Tennessee. The boys' team came in third place in the Region.

Human Performance Weight Room

With the renovation of the human performance weight room located at the Upper School, the enhanced performance center is accessible now for the entire student body. The renovations have expedited our ability to install methodologies based around teaching movement, core strength and proper lifting techniques. Sixteen racks, numerous dumbbell and kettlebell racks and increased space give the athletics program the necessary tools to teach effectively.
