Andover Central’s Paighton Crumley – Wichita Area Athlete Spotlight Presented By Visit Wichita

Paighton Crumley of Andover Central was voted the Wichita Large School Preseason Girls Bowler of the Year. Crumley rolled a 542 series last year at the 5-1A Tournament, which was best among the Jaguars.

She also won the Central’s league tournament, regional tournament and was named first team all-league.

Crumley is one of the lone returners for Andover Central this season, so there are likely to be some growing pains, but she is excited about this new group of bowlers.

“I think this season will be about growth and learning, and I am excited to see what the team can accomplish,” Crumley said. “Individually I am looking forward to good competition and fighting to win league and regionals again.”

Bowling is not just something Crumley participates in from January through March. It has become a year-round sport.

“I would say my greatest strength is the experience I have with bowling,” Crumley said. “I bowled in the Junior Gold tournament in Michigan this past summer, and participate in regional tournaments year round.”

After she graduates, Crumley would like to continue her bowling career, but at this point she is uncertain as to where that will be. She would also like to pursue a career in culinary arts or business management.
