NEW FOR 2016-2017

At the recommendation of the KCA (Kansas Coaches Association), the following will be in place for the 2016-2017 season:

1. BAKER-STYLE BOWLING FOR POST-SEASON
During regional and state competitions, three regular games will be bowled using the top four scores to determine the total pin count. Four additional games will be bowled in Baker format. The total from the three regular games plus the total from the four baker games will be added together. Highest total pin count wins.
Rationale :

  • The baker format of bowling is the best possible way to achieve a complete team concept in the sport. It allows all teammates to be involved by participating or cheering for their team. As high school bowling has evolved, there has been increased demand for baker style tournaments throughout the season from coaches, student-athletes, proprietors, and spectators. It is becoming a preferred tournament style across the state.

    There have been enough tournaments with the baker format added during the regular season that the KBCA feels it should be included in postseason. It brings a large amount of excitement and team orientation to an otherwise very individualized sport that wouldn’t be possible any other way.

2. DURING BAKER COMPETITION, BOWLERS ALLOWED TO STAND
Coaches and bowlers shall be allowed to stand in the settee area and at the back of the approach during Baker competition.
Rationale:

  • During baker style bowling teams normally stand at the back of the approach to greet their player as they come back from bowling. It adds to the excitement of the format and also to the team unity involved. This also makes the format go more quickly since everyone is standing ready to bowl. At the state tournament, the bowling area is down below the spectators so they will be able to see around the bowlers.
