Bowling Post Season Begins January 22

The KHSAA would like to wish all of the schools participating in bowling good luck as they prepare for the post season.  Click the link below for the post season team instructions.  These instructions include both region and the state information.  These instructions can also be found on the bowling page of the KHSAA.org website under regional information and state information.

You should have received or be receiving shortly additional information from your regional managers regarding specifics to your regional tournaments.  Any forms you need will be included in the team instructions.

There are a few changes that will occur different from last year for the post season.  The first is a change in the stepladder portion of the singles tournament.  This year there will be a cut to 8 competitors and then a cut to 4 competitors for the stepladder.  This will occur at both the regional and the state level.  This was a suggestion from the bowling advisory committee that met after last seasons tournament.

Ebonite/KHSAA State Championship Information

A change at the state tournament will be the use of wristbands instead of the patches/stickers for pit access.  There will still be only two coaches per team admitted with pit access, but the singles tournament there will be a coach per singles entry access.  The wristbands given for coaches access must be used by a certified coach listed in your schools coaching personnel. 

KHSAAtv/ihigh will be broadcasting via the web both singles championships on Thursday as well as the team championships on Friday this year – http://www.ihigh.com/khsaa/
