Our State Champion Bowling Team was recently featured in an article by The Advocate:
"Kent Lowe: Brother Martin bowlers have state title record in their sights
When it comes to the 2023 high school bowling season in this part of the state, the Brother Martin boys and the Denham Springs girls will be linked together in more storylines than one.
The two teams are the reigning state champions. That will be important as the teams try to repeat as champions but for the Crusaders, a win in 2023 would probably go down as the most important title win to date in the history of state high school bowling, which crowned its first champion in 2005.
If Brother Martin secures the title this year, it would be an unprecedented fifth consecutive title, joining the past four contested in 2018, 2019, 2021, 2022. That’s another tie in to the Denham Springs girls who won the first four girls titles from 2005-08.
Brother Martin has won six titles in all including titles in 2015 and 2016. Of course, the 2020 season was ended prematurely with the pandemic. But when it comes to history, starting with the 2015 season, the Crusaders have not lost a playoff match conducted in a bowling center. The only playoff match they lost in that period was in 2017 on the specially installed lanes at the Raising Canes River Center in Baton Rouge..."
We can't wait to cheer on our Crusader bowlers this season! Read the full article on theadvocate.com.

2022 STATE CHAMPIONS!
Crescent City Sports’ live streaming coverage of high school bowling for 2023 begins Saturday with the final matches of the annual Louisiana High School Invitational.
Coverage from All Star Lanes in Baton Rouge will begin at approximately 1:30 p.m.
Unlike regular-season high school bowling matches in Louisiana, in which six bowlers on a team bowl regular games, the one-day Invitational has teams competing in a fast-moving Baker format, where a game consists of five bowlers rolling two frames each.
After 10 qualifying games, the top four boys and girls teams advance to the championship bracket. The semifinal winners meet in the live-streamed championship matches, which will be a best-of-seven-games format.
The High School Invitational typically attracts as many as 40 boys and girls teams from around the state. In last year’s championship matches, Jesuit defeated Catholic High for the boys title and Dutchtown topped Denham Springs for the girls crown.
The Crescent City Sports team is in its 12th season of producing live broadcasts for television and internet, having produced more than 400 live streams since 2012, and is continuing its extensive commitment to prep sports coverage on its website for 2022-23.
