KU Women’s Bowling team has named their second-ever head coach, Angela Reynolds, to lead the Golden Bears into their 13th season.
Angela Reynolds has been bowling since the age of three and bowled for Delaware State University. She was a four-year starter and anchor, named All-American, three-time National Tenpin Coaches Association (NTCA) recipient and three-time All-Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) recipient for the Hornets. After bowling at the USBC Team USA Trials in 2009, she was selected to the Junior Team USA.
Graduating in 2012, she has a degree in Psychology and credits towards a minor in Coaching and Management.
After college, Angela volunteered at Stanton Lanes in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. She coached the junior program there until they closed. Before KU, she worked with special needs children and coached players on the side.
She has two children, four-year-old Brayden and one-year-old Jordyn. Both will be around the bowling alley supporting the Golden Bears.
Angela Reynolds said her mentor in bowling, coaching and life is Kim Terrell-Kearney. “My goal is to give a college player an experience that she will remember forever. To not only teach her about the sport of bowling but about herself as a player and a person,” Angela said. Leading her players into the season, the Women’s Bowling team will be at a total of eleven tournaments this season.
KU will be at the Bud Whitman Invite on Oct. 12 and 13 at Berks Lanes in Sinking Springs, Pa., hosted by Chestnut Hill College. The last tournament in October will be at the Stevens Invite, a USBC event, on Oct. 26, in Elmwood, N.J. Come on out and support your fellow Golden Bears!
