The SFA Ladyjack Bowling team learned its fate earlier this week as sectional-qualifying assignments were handed out for the 2013 xBowling Intercollegiate Team Championships. SFA will be competing in the Las Vegas Sectional.
The four sectional qualifiers will be held Saturday-Sunday, March 9-10 at AMF Parkway Lanes in Allentown, Pa.; Texas Star Lanes in Las Vegas; St. Clair Bowl in Fairview Heights, Ill.; and Smyrna Bowling Center in Smyrna, Tenn.
The top four teams in each division at each sectional will advance to the 2013 xbowling Intercollegiate Team Championships, which will be held Thursday-Friday, April18-20 at Sun Valley Lanes in Lincoln, Neb.
Sectional assignments are based on the Team Ranking System points earned in USBC Collegiate-certified competition throughout the season. USBC Collegiate attempts to place no more than two of the top eight schools and no more than four of the top 16 schools in a sectional based on final TRS totals. Sectional qualifier fields are determined by taking geographic distance, economics and field size into consideration.
The sectionals will consist of 32 Baker games each day for a total of 64 Baker games. The top four teams based on total pinfall in each division following the completion of competition at each sectional will advance to the 2013 xbowling Intercollegiate Team Championships.
In addition, these four locations will host qualifying for the 2013 xbowling Intercollegiate Singles Championships on Friday, March 8. Competitors at each of the four sectional events will bowl six games with 24 men and 16 women - the top four men and top four women at each sectional plus eight additional selections from the men’s field based on size of field at each location - advancing to the national singles tournament on Tuesday, April 16 at Sun Valley Lanes in Lincoln, Neb.
