Since 2010, BCAW has offered the Middle School Bowling Club (MSBC) as a way to introduce sixth, seventh and eighth graders to the next level of team competition. With over 120 school based teams throughout Wisconsin, we have seen steady growth in the program. Today approximately 65 bowling centers support the MSBC by hosting teams and district level competition. Our program will culminate this Saturday with the Wisconsin Middle School State Bowling Championships, being held at Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley in Green Bay.
The competition will begin with 240 bowlers competing in the singles event. Students earned their way to the state championships through their local district competition. There will be seven divisions based on gender and entering average; four divisions for the boys and three for the girls. All bowlers will bowl three games with champions crowned based on their three game scratch series.
Shortly after the singles event, our field of 57 teams will take to the lanes. This year we have 37 boys/coed and 20 girls teams. All teams will bowl 12 baker games, which will determine our champions in the two divisions.
We are very pleased to have 900 Global as our sponsor for this year’s championship event. Representing 900 Global will be PBA Star and current member of Team USA Chris Barnes! We are appreciative that 900 Global will be donating four bowling balls for our raffle which will be conducted during the tournament. Through a donation from QubicaAMF, Chris will be on hand to autograph bowling pins as an added fundraiser to help support the MSBC.
We encourage everyone to come out and enjoy a fun day of youth bowling! The singles competition will begin at 9:30a and the team event will begin at 1:30p. The admission for spectators is just $5 per person (kids under the age of 11 are free).
