NEW ORLEANS - Tulane bowling coach Hayley Veitch announced the addition of Angela Falgoust, Jessica Quebedeaux and Kierstyn Rush after the trio each signed a National Letter of Intent to join the Green Wave as a freshman in the fall of 2013.
Falgoust and Quebeduaux are each from Louisiana, while Rush comes to Tulane from Indiana.
"It is always nice to have local Louisiana bowlers as well as bowlers from further afield," Veitch said. "With these ladies, the team has a strong building block and I am really excited about the future for Tulane Bowling."
Falgoust, a native of Baton Rouge, La., was a three-year varsity captain at St. Michael's High School. She was a member of two state runner-up teams and was the girl's singles state champion as a sophomore and senior and state runner-up as a freshman and sophomore. Falgoust was also a four-time first team all-district selection and earned the district MVP as a junior and senior.
Quebedeaux, a native of Lafayette, La., was a four-year starter at Lafayette High School. She help guide the Lady Lions to state titles as a freshman and junior and the state runner-up as a sophomore. Quebedeaux placed fourth in this past year's state singles tournament and was a four-year first team all-district bowler.
Rush, a native of Dyer, Ind., was a two-year captain at Lake Central High School. She earned all-conference honors as a sophomore, junior and senior and helped guide her team to a state runner-up finish as a senior, while placing eighth in the state individual tournament.
"These three young ladies bring both academic and athletic excellence to the program," Veitch said. "I am looking forward to seeing the progress we make this year. These ladies have great work ethics and their personalities will be a great fit for the current team."
The three bowlers join the Green Wave squad that begins its third year as a program in the Fall. Tulane finished 29-52 this past season that included three fifth-place finishes.
