Leo High School doesn’t just have a bowling team, they have really good bowling teams! Coach Debo Wedgeworth is very proud of his bowlers and how they finished the season. Both the JV and the Varsity teams had strong seasons working hard to end on a high note.

“Varsity ended the state tournament strong scoring 800+ in four out of the five games. JV came in 4th in the Catholic League after dominating their playoff game to make the Championship round. I am really proud of our young men” said Coach Wedgeworth.

The Varsity team is lead by five juniors who started bowling in their freshman year. Caron Gordon had the highest team average this year and had a high game score of 235 this season and several 200+ games. Khalil Blakes was the surprise bowler — after averaging 130-140, he ended the state playoffs with a 190, 191, 198, 193, 172 and 163! On the JV team, Junior Jonathan Gamble averaged a 159 for the season and shot high games of 192 and 187. The JV team also includes two sophomores: Joseph Thomas, who scored a season high 210 after averaging 120 during the season, and Tyler Brooks, the JV’s anchor bowler. Tyler is a clutch bowler who is especially good under pressure — he picked up some tough spares in a couple of crucial situations. The most consistent JV bowler was sophomore Jalen Rilington averaging 130 for most of the seasons.

Coach Wedgeworth is proud of the bowlers and thankful for all their hard work. He is also thankful for the family support of the bowling teams! 

Leo’s Bowling Team is sure to have a strong year next year as all bowlers are returning!
