Russell's Donovan to Bowl in College

RHS Senior Austin Donovan 4-14-14Austin Donovan has been around bowling nearly all of his life. His family operates the bowling alley in Russell. So it comes as no surprise the Russell High School senior is going to bowl in college.

On Monday, April 14 at Amos Morris Gym in Russell, Donovan signed a national letter of intent with Newman University in Wichita.

Donovan, who also competes in football, basketball and track at RHS, will join a nationally known Jets program. Newman started their men's bowling program in 2002 and landed in the top 10 national rankings five times in Division II.

Donovan is believed to be the first ever RHS senior to earn a bowling scholarship.
