Vanderbilt bowling senior reflects on Dores' NCAA runner-up campaign

by Zac Ellis

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Vanderbilt senior Kristin Quah is about to put a bow on a remarkably impressive student-athlete career. The Singapore native helped the Commodores author an NCAA runner-up campaign this spring, one year after the program won its second national championship. Quah is an All-American on the lanes and an academic star in the classroom; she holds a 3.97 grade-point average in a double-major of biomedical and mechanical engineering. This week, she became just the third Vanderbilt student-athlete to earn the SEC’s H. Boyd McWhorter Award, given to the outstanding male and female student-athlete across all SEC sports.

Quah sat down with the Commodore Insider Podcast to reflect on this season’s run to second at the NCAA Bowling Championship. She also discussed her career at Vanderbilt, how she balances the academic rigors of her classwork and her journey from Singapore to Nashville.
