BRIGHAM CITY, UtahStorm Products is proud to announce that collegiate standout, Abby Ragsdale has joined Team Storm.

“I’m really excited for this opportunity,” Ragsdale said. “It’s something I’ve been dreaming about since I was little. My family raised me on Storm. Now being able to say I represent the best brand in bowling, I’m just ecstatic.”

The love of bowling was shared with Ragsdale by her family, especially her grandpa, at a young age. Her family would bowl together every week as she was beginning to compete. They challenged her to keep learning and she continued to improve as she grew. With their support, Ragsdale went on to compete collegiately at the University of St. Francis where she collected numerous honors including the National Collegiate Bowling Coaches Association Rookie of the Year (2017) and a two-time first-team collegiate All-American (2019, 2020), and Most Valuable Player (2019). She was also named the NAIA MVP as she led the team win the National Invitational in 2017 and Player of the Year in 2019.

“Team Storm is excited to add this top young talent to our national team and we look forward to many successful years,” Gary Hulsenberg, VP Business Development said. “Our national team is an extension of our Storm Family and we look to add athletes who share similar dedication, values and beliefs. Abby is an ideal fit.”


Though her final collegiate season didn’t end as anticipated due to COVID-19 precautions, Ragsdale is proud of her collegiate career and is looking forward to the future.

“There’s a lot of top moments that come to mind as I reflect,” Ragsdale said. “Probably my favorite collegiate moment came as a team. Being a freshman and winning NAIA nationals with all the seniors is something I’ll always cherish. That’s what you go into bowling collegiately wanting to accomplish.”

Ragsdale has continued to stay diligent post-graduation. She has stayed focused on her physical fitness and been working on her mental game. She also has stayed connected with her coach to talk about her mental & physical game. When bowling centers were closed, she put her had in her ball every day and did one-step drills in her backyard.  She will be ready when the PWBA Tour returns.

“I want to make sure I’m representing Storm to the best of my ability.” Ragsdale said. “Rookie of the Year is something I have my eye on.”
