Doug Dukes, who has grown up in the sport of bowling, is serving as the assistant coach for the UMES women's bowling program for his eighth season.Dukes returned to his duties beginning in February of 2011 after one and half seasons removed from the program. He resigned after the 2008-09 campaign to spend more time with his family.
He played an integral role in the Lady Hawks' 2008 & 2011 NCAA championships as well as the 2011 USBC Collegiate Championship. His primary responsibilities include setting up practice and workout schedules, while handling all ball drilling and equipment modifications.
Dukes plays a vital role in increasing player awareness and lane playability when it comes to game-day athletic performance.
In 2004, he helped guide the Lady Hawks to the first ever NCAA Championship appearance, where UMES finished seventh.
By the age of 17, Dukes held a USA Junior Olympic Level I (1998) and a USA Bowling Silver Level (2000) coaching certification. He is the first individual in the United States Olympic Committee to hold these certifications at such a young age.
Dukes is also the owner of Advanced Coaching Solutions in Millsboro, Del. The company implements detailed coaching programs, while hosting the most sophisticated coaching facility on the upper east coast. He manages program integrity and uniformity by having two coaches on staff.
Dukes is also the assistant manager at Millsboro Lanes, which plays host to 986 league bowlers. As an assistant manager, he expanded sales through marketing and promotion and was also responsible for a $750,000 eight-lane expansion.
