DONALDSON, IN – Corgan Shepard from Kokomo High School recently signed his National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Letter of Intent to continue his bowling career at Ancilla College.
Shepard, who bowled in the fourth spot at Kokomo under coaches Mark Matthews and Nikki Parkhurst, was a part of the 2015 Semi-State Finalist team. He was also a Regional Singles Semi-Finalist in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
“I am really excited to continue my bowling career at Ancilla,” said Shepard. “I really liked how tight knit the school was and how much it felt like a family. Coach Al was very easy to get along with and the campus just had the right feel to it.”
“We are proud to welcome Corgan to the Charger bowling family,” commented Head Coach Al Franklin. “We look forward to having his skills a part of our program and we look forward to watching him grow both academically and athletically.”
Corgan is the son of Karyn Johnson and Raymond Johnson. While attending Ancilla, Corgan plans to study Sports Management.
