A team from Shorecrest competed at the 54th Annual State High School Varsity Bowling Championships February 16-17, 2019 in Tacoma.

More than 1,000 student athletes statewide participated during the bowling season. Now in its 54th year, this is the 2nd longest running High School Bowling Championship in America, following only New York.

Coach Veronica Cook said,
I am so proud of our team for qualifying for and competing at the State Tournament. Many of our bowlers have never bowled competitively before joining our high school team. This is the case for both Shorewood and Shorecrest. 
I am very proud of how Shorewood coach Tammy Ceesay and I have been able to encourage students to bowl that may never have thought of doing it competitively before. (See Shorewood bowling article HERE)
The success of our two schools shows that this is a sport than anyone can be involved in. We hope that our success will continue and that we can introduce more students to the sport.

All kids are welcome on the teams, and no experience is necessary.

Bowling is classified as a club, rather than a sport, so there is no financial support. Community members can help support the kids by donating to the program.

Cook said they could use bowling balls 12lbs or lower, bowling shoes in multiple sizes, and wrist supports. Contact her if you have items to contribute:
