Campbellsville High School senior Vera Brown will continue her academic and bowling career at Lindsey Wilson College in the fall.
She officially signed her letter of intent in a special ceremony on Wednesday, Feb. 1.
Her friends, family members and coaches attended.
CHS Principal Kirby Smith said it’s always exciting to see a student athlete go on to pursue the sport they love while they continue their education.
Smith said he is excited for Brown and her family.
“But you won’t be going far,” he said. “Just down the road.”
Brown said she thanks CHS bowling coaches Stephen Tucker and Dakota Pendleton for helping her be able to bowl in college.
She also thanked her family members for their support.
LWC bowling coach Brandon Burns said he is excited to add Brown to his team.
“We’re just happy to have her,” he said. “She will be a great addition.”
Burns said Brown has become a member of the largest recruiting class for his team, and he looks forward to the upcoming season.
Tucker said it was a pleasure coaching Brown during his first year as CHS head bowling coach.
“You’ve got a great kid Coach Burns,” he said.
Brown said she plans to major in nursing.
She said she chose to attend LWC because she toured the campus last fall and really liked the atmosphere of a small college, and how everyone treated her like family.
After Brown learned LWC had a bowling team, she talked to Burns, who invited her to tour the practice facility.
Brown bowled for Burns, she said, and he then invited her to become a part of the team.
She says she is excited to become a part of the LWC family and bowling team.
