It has become somewhat of an annual tradition for the Alexandria high school traveling bowling team to make an appearance at the state tournament.


Chad Meyer has been the coach of the Alexandria bowling team for 16 years, and he said they have made a state appearance in 10 of those seasons. This year is no exception as the team won all three of their matches at the West Central South conference tournament to earn a spot at the state tournament in December.
