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
