Ottawa University in Kansas Looking for Bowlers

My name is Geoff Poston. I was recently hired at Ottawa University here in Kansas to start a Men’s and Women’s Bowling Program. We are located about 20 minutes South of the University of Kansas and about 20 minutes SW of Kansas City. Ottawa University is going to compete as a Varsity sport in the Fall of 2017.  We are looking to fill 8 spots for the men and 8 spots for the women in our first year of competition. Athletic and academic scholarships are available!!!  I am not only looking for good bowlers but good students, good team players, good work ethic. And kids who want to get an outstanding education and be a part of something special at the same time.


We only have 8 spots available in our first year of competition (8 men, 8 women). We will expand this number to 16 each over the next 2-3 years and field a JV team as well. So time is a factor. I look forward to hearing about some potential kids! Thank you!

I can be reached at this email ( Everything is starting to roll “fast”! Thank you!!! I look forward to hearing from you.
