OXFORD – Oxford’s winter sports offerings increased by two after the district’s board of education approved the creation of boys and girls varsity bowling teams on Monday night.

According to Superintendent Randall Squier, the idea to add the sport came as a result of a student participation study.

“There is interest,” he said, explaining that the addition will “provide another option” for students during the winter season. This will be particularly important for female athletes, he explained, as next year volleyball will move to the fall, which would leave basketball as their sole option.

“Bowling is a lifetime sport,” said Squier, comparing it to golf and tennis.

Athletic Director Tim Davis reported that a total of 28 students – 17 boys, 11 girls – have indicated an interest in the newly created teams. While a handful of those who signed up had engaged in other winter sports in the past, some were interested for the first time.

Squier said Davis has worked closely with Plaza Lanes Manager Mark Ewan to make the necessary arrangements.
