Boys Bowling Captures 2021 State Championship

Wednesday, February 10, 2021

The Highlander boys bowling team won the SCISA State Championship match at Sumter’s Gamecock Lanes on Monday, February 8th. They put together their best three game series of the year with a total of 540, finishing in first place and beating seven other schools.

The team was made up of five bowlers: James Lucas, Andrew Kriter, Van Clarke, Hugh Willcox, and Daniel Sobel.

It was the second state championship in a row for the Heathwood bowling program, as the girls team earned the title last year. The girls also finished as state runners-up this year despite the fact that all but one member of last year's team graduated in 2020.

Both teams are coached by long-time Heathwood teacher, coach, and administrator Bill Cherry.
