The John Hardin Bowling team has a boys and girls team.  This sport is open to all students in the 7th and 8th grade who are attending Bluegrass Middle School  The bowling program is designed to help students enjoy a life-long sport.  The bowling program became a KHSAA sanctioned sport in the fall of 2011.  The team has enjoyed several successful seasons.  We have qualified for the KHSAA Bowling tournament three times; individuals on both the boys and girls team advance into state competition every year.

This year, our goal is to finish as a state competitor.  Bowlers understand that it takes hard work at both schools and on the lanes to become a well-balanced student-athlete.
