11/15/2011 – Aquinas College is pleased to announce expanded athletic opportunities for current and future students as the College will begin to offer men’s & women’s bowling starting in the 2012-13 school year.
Frank Rogers has been named the Director of Bowling/Head Bowling Coach for Aquinas College's newest sport offering. Rogers has built the schools women's lacrosse program into a national power and now looks forward to doing the same with the Aquinas men's and women's bowling programs. "There are 330 boys and girls high school bowling programs just in the state of Michigan. This gives us a great base to build our program on, we have already been in talks with some very good student-athletes who are excited to be part of our new program and help lay the foundation for success."
The Saints will begin the process of affiliating with the USBC (United States Bowling Congress) and join current WHAC members (Davenport, Indiana Tech, Siena Heights and Northwestern Ohio) who offer bowling at the club level.
Aquinas College Athletic Director Terry Bocian comments, “Bowling is the fastest growing sport at the high school level as well as at the small college level. It will be a nice addition to our program.”
