The Campbellsville University Harrodsburg Pioneers have made another addition to their athletic coaching staff with Olivia Boggs. The Spring of 2021 CU Harrodsburg graduate is grateful for her new position as coach of the bowling team.
“Being 22-years-old and having this opportunity to be a coach at the collegiate level is beyond exciting, this has just been a dream come true,” said Boggs.
Boggs, a former bowler for West Jessamine High School, finished seventh at the state singles bowling competition in high school, and went on to compete in both bowling and golf at CU Harrodsburg before graduating with a degree in business management in the Spring of 2021. Boggs was one of the initial student athletes to make a roster for the Pioneers and one of the first to graduate from the Campbellsville University satellite.
“She has made an imprint in so many ways at CU Harrodsburg as a student and as an athlete, and I believe that those experiences will help guide her in the leadership of the program in a very unique way,” said CU Harrodsburg Athletic Director Dalton Christopher. Christopher has seen Bogg’s dedication to her faith first hand and believes she can grow the bowling program in their number and their faith.
“I believe Ms. Boggs will produce and foster a team that is competitive in competition, but also rooted in the mission of Campbellsville University. Ms. Boggs has a strong biblical foundation that she will use in her program. She will not only lead the program in the development of each student athlete, but through her vision of growth for the program, she will help it become a destination for potential student athletes from Kentucky and beyond.“
One of the initial impacts Boggs expects to have on the Pioneers bowling program is an uptake in recruitment as she plans to hold recruiting events for potential prospects and build interest in the program at the high school level. She also plans to implement a problem solving environment in the squad.
