Meet Kevin Hanenkrat, coach of the Newcomerstown High School bowling team

Newcomerstown High School has added bowling as a competitive sport in 2022.

Tell us a little about yourself, your family, and what you enjoy doing in your free time – I am an avid outdoorsman and marksman, and own two businesses in Newcomerstown (Now & Then Guns-n-Stuff and NTGS Customs). My wife is Robyn, and we have three daughters, Hailey, Maddie, and Libby. I spend my time bowling, hunting, fishing and spending time with my daughters and wife.

Tell us about your bowling background and what you enjoy about the sport – I started bowling when I was 4, and by the age of 13 I was playing in the men’s leagues with my dad. Bowling was a place my dad, me, and brother bonded with, and no matter what happened, we found peace in the sport. Over the past 44 years, I’ve done a lot in the game with 30+ 300 games and 13,800 series. She has held home records at four different bowling alleys at different times. I tell people that bowling is my sanctuary with just myself, a ball, 10 pins and 60 feet of lane where everything else can be put aside for a while.
