"I have been bowling for about eight years and I like the environment of the sport," she said. "I also enjoy learning new skills and forms.

"I feel like bowling has taught me to work hard and work well with others. It has taught me to set goals for myself and always work toward them."

At this point, Lowe has turned herself to the Knights' volleyball team where she is a right-side hitter.

Lowe plans to attend the College of the Ozarks and major in pediatric nursing. However, the college does not have a bowling team, although she plans to continue to play on her own for years to come.
