While high school bowling has been a state sponsored sport for just a few years, many high schools have had bowling teams for several seasons. In Knoxville the Panthers have realized how much the sport is growing on the high school level. Knoxville Senior Bowler Mackenzie Boyd says a lot of the players watch the professionals on TV, and check out Quickstats to see who the top bowlers are. The Panthers have another couple of weeks before they head to the state meet on March 11th. Both boys and girls squads from Knoxville qualified for the state meet.
