High school bowling set to begin in Seymour

It’s time to get back to the bowling lanes.

Seymour High School and Seymour Middle School bowling is getting started with a call-out meeting for bowlers and their adult this Saturday at 1 p.m. in the community room at Old National Bank, next door to KFC, in Seymour.

Coaches will discuss the season and fill out all of the paperwork so the team can get busy on the lanes.

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

SHS/SMS bowling is looking for bowlers in grades 6-12 at any level of experience.

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

Bowlers will be working on fundraisers, including selling spices, starting in September.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to help cover the cost of practice time, uniforms, and equipment.

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

Contact bowling centers in Scottsburg or Columbus for more information on their leagues and recreational activities.

There will be changes to the high school bowling season.

At the close of last season, the South Central Indiana Conference chose to split due to the amount of travel time required to reach our events.

The five schools bowling out of the Bloomington bowling center retained the SCIC name while the remaining schools reverted to our original name of Southeastern Indiana Conference.

The SEIC includes Columbus North, Madison, Scottsburg, Seymour, and South Ripley.

One of the main goals for this season is to bring bowling back to schools like Crothersville, Southwestern Jefferson, Switzerland County, and Trinity Lutheran that have had teams in the past, but did not participate last season.

There is also the hope of adding a team from Austin and then eventually growing into the Greensburg area.
