Bowling Becomes a Hot High School Sport

These days, the top jocks at your local high school aren't necessarily on the football field, but in the bowling alley (or "center", to be more politically correct). According to the National Federation of State High School Associations, bowling is the fastest growing varsity sport.

Much of this growth is fueled by the bowling industry, looking to update its image and to replace declining bowling leagues. Students like the sport because of its egalitarianism; while players need skill, they don't have to be specially endowed physically to excel.
