McCallie is an All-Boys Private Boarding School and Day School, a Christian-based College Prep School.
McCallie seeks out and accepts boys from all ethnic, racial, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds and places a high value on a diverse student body.
Since bowling became a Tennessee-sanctioned varsity sport in 2001, McCallie bowling teams have captured state titles in 2005, 2006 and 2010. The Blue Tornado have been state runners-up in 2015 and 2016.
Former head coach Jeff Kurtzman led the Blue Tornado to the first two titles. Current head coach Josh Deitrick led the program to an undefeated season and the State Championship in 2010.
Coach Deitrick has directed the squad since 2007 and has guided McCallie to the state tournament in each of those years. In 2015, McCallie advanced to the title match before falling to the eventual champion and claiming runner-up status.
Alex Goss ’09 won the 2008 Division II individual state bowling crown as a junior and was state runner-up his senior season.
