Abby Ragsdale


    I recently graduated from the University of St. Francis in Joliet, IL with a degree in Substance Abuse Counseling. With this degree, I work as a counselor part-time as well as compete on the PWBA Tour. I am super hard working and competitive and always want to be surrounded by people who live by these traits. I was raised with the if you want it, work hard and go get it mentality. Outside of the bowling center. I am very adventurous and love traveling. Sending time with friends and family is also something very important to me.

    As far back as I can remember I had a bowling ball in my hand. I grew up in the bowling centers because my parents and grandparents bowled in a few leagues together. Bowling runs in the family so naturally, I fell in love with the game. I would go practice every week with my Dad and Grandpa for years and years. Eventually, I got serious with it and bowled well in high school. Throughout my collegiate career, I wanted to pursue bowling at the next level and now I'm competing on my rookie season of the PWBA.

    I can't wait to dive into this journey and continue to work hard. I want to be the best athlete I can be and improve on my game with every opportunity I can get. I'm excited to see what my journey looks like on the PWBA Tour!
