Fowler bowls with champion Senators
Athlete of the Week
MADISON – A Sparkman High School senior, Beth Fowler participates with the bowling team, which recently won the first-ever state bowling championship in the girls’ division.
“I’ve tried sticking to one sport that I like, get better and achieve the highest goals,” Fowler said. “Bowling gives me the passion and desire I’ve always craved.”
Fowler has tried numerous other sports, but these “never gave me the drive that I wanted. So when my family started up, I instantly connected to bowling and the excitement of being on the lanes,” she said.
She also bowls in a league twice weekly with her brothers, Doug and Russell. Doug also attends Sparkman and Russell is a fifth-grade at Madison Cross Roads.
Their parents are Rusty and Rebecca Fowler. “Our mom works on the arsenal while our dad works for the City of Huntsville at Hayes Nature Preserve, “Beth said.
