Through past years, the FHN bowling team has consisted of both boys and girls making it a co-ed team. However, this year is different as the only girl who was on the team, Senior Payten Davis, is no longer a part of the FHN bowling team. 

“We actually don’t have any girls on the team this year even though it’s co-ed, last year we had a girl on the team but she’s not on the team this year,” member of the bowling team and senior Julius Cox said. 

Although there are currently no girls that are a part of the team, it is still considered to be co-ed so girls are welcome to join. The team hopes to have more girls join the team in the future years.

“Bowling helped me be a better leader,” Davis said. “It helped me with being a good sport and managing my anger in public spaces. I definitely didn’t leave on false terms, I just couldn’t do it anymore.”

For any girls who are interested in joining the team, bowling is looking for new athletes in the 2024 season. The team is open to anyone who wants to join and they will teach new athletes anything they need to know.
