Seymour conducting bowling callout meeting

The Seymour middle and high school bowling teams are getting their seasons started with a callout meeting for bowlers and their adult on Saturday.

Callouts are at 1 p.m. in the community room at Old National Bank, 1117 E. Tipton St., Seymour.

Those in attendance will discuss the season and fill out all of the paperwork required for the season.

A contact sheet is available in the school office if unable to come to the meeting.

Seymour middle and high school bowling is for bowlers in grades 6 through 12.

Some fifth-grade bowlers also may be considered if they are already an established youth league bowler or have an older sibling on the team.

The middle school team is looking to continue the streak of three regional team championships in a row, and the Seymour High School boys team is poised to have its strongest team to date.

The South Central Indiana Conference is looking at expanding even though it is short another bowling center this season with the closing of Ten Pin Alley in Madison following a severe storm earlier this summer.

The conference, which includes 11 teams, will be adding Edgewood and Switzerland County and potentially Austin, Seymour coach and conference coordinator Shannon Kelly said.

Crothersville and Mitchell also have been members of the conference in the past, but they did not have teams last season and are uncertain about teams this year.

Seymour middle and high school bowling is an all-volunteer group that is eager to teach and promote the sport of bowling.
