Bowman Academy

April 15, 2014

Bowman Academy was Greensburg’s opponent this year in the 3A basketball championship.  Since their inception, they have won championships in the 1A and 2A classes.  Because of their consistent finishes in the state tournament, they are now in class 3A.  Even without winning the state this year, they could be pushed up to 4A next year if they win another semi-state in basketball.  This is one of the schools that the rule of reclassification was meant to affect, and it certainly has.

Bowman is not a true public school nor is it a true parochial school.  It is a private academy.   Even if some people say they are not recruiting, check the roster of the ball players and see where they played their pre-high school basketball.  I think you will find that some of these kids may not even be from the state of Indiana.  This is conjecture on my part, but I have some pretty good sources giving me information.

Bowman Academy is not an East-Coast Academy which allows players to play more than 4 years of basketball.  It is strictly a 4-year high school, but it is not like 95% of the schools it is completing against.  They definitely have an advantage.  This makes Greensburg’s feat even more impressive!
