The Bowling Team is an LHSAA sanctioned spring sport. Team members generally participate in the Bowling Club from September through December and are selected to the Team by the outcome of their performance in Club as well as a formal try-out process. Membership is open to any 9th – 12th grade student. Competition begins in January and play-offs for the State Title are in April.
Brother Martin has built a reputation over the years as being a powerhouse in bowling. In recent years, the Crusaders were District Champ, Bi-Regional Champ, and State Runner-Up in 2009. The 2011 team also advanced to become State Runner-Up. In 2014, the Crusaders were undefeated in District and Bi-Regional competition, and a state semi-finalist. Of the 6 starters, all were named to either All-District or All-State teams. All 6 placed in the top averages in the state.
The 2015 team will need to replace 5 seniors (3 starters) but has talent in the underclassmen to rebuild a quality team.
2015 State Champs!
