Ludy Bowl is named after Miss Lucile “Ludy” Godbold, who was a popular coach and figure here at the college. She was the first South Carolinian to participate in the Women’s World Olympics in 1922, competing in long jump and several running and throwing events including shot put. In that same year, Godbold won a gold medal for shot put and a bronze in the javelin throw. In 1961, she became the first woman inducted into the South Carolina Sports Hall of Fame.

She came back to campus an avid advocate for women’s sports and physical activities and thereafter started the annual Ludy Bowl flag football competition. The flag football game usually consisted of sister classes, meaning first-years and juniors vs. sophomores and seniors.

The format has changed, however we will still be celebrating and remembering her during the annual Family and Friends weekend. Instead of the usual flag football game, we asked students and visitors to rally around the soccer team as they took on Reinhardt University on October 13, 2018. While the college may be tweaking a few things, Columbia College will never lose its spirit of tradition.
