Division III Bowling

(1/11) > >>

FCGrizzliesGrad:
Bowling is near and dear to my heart so I thought I'd get a thread going on it. Going to try to make a list of all D3 schools that have bowling because there is only a single division for the sport.

I find it strange that women's bowling is NCAA sponsored (since 2004) but men's isn't when there's just as many if not more men's teams.

FCGrizzliesGrad:
These are all the schools I could find that either have been to a meet already this year or played last year...

That's not alot, but bowling would be a relatively inexpensive sport to add for a school looking to add a sport without breaking the budget.

Pat Coleman:
The reason why it's a recognized sport for women is that it takes fewer schools sponsoring a sport for there to be a women's championship.

Equestrian, rugby and sand volleyball are emerging sports. Interesting.
