NCAA Teams Head West For Vegas Classic

For the first time in history, NCAA Women’s Bowling teams from across the country will compete for a title in Las Vegas starting Friday.

The 2020 Stormin’ Blue & White Vegas Classic, which is hosted by Mount St. Mary’s University, will take place at the South Point Bowling Plaza. It’s the farthest west an NCAA Women’s Bowling event has ever been held.

Every match for every team will be broadcast live on FloBowling throughout the weekend. There will be cameras on each pair in use so fans of each team can follow their squad every match. All matches will also be available for on-demand viewing at the end of each day.

The competition gets underway Friday at 1:55 p.m. Eastern with five rounds of matches. Each round consists of five Baker games and the team with the highest total pinfall wins the match.

On Saturday, the teams will bowl five additional matches starting at 12:55 p.m. Eastern. Each team will field five players and the team with the highest pinfall each match wins.

The final day of competition, Sunday, will feature three rounds of best-of-seven Baker bracket play to determine the winner of the event.

Ten of the teams in the 13-team field are ranked in the National Tenpin Coaches Association’s most recent poll, including three of the top five teams.

McKendree, coached by PWBA superstar Shannon O’Keefe, is the top-ranked team in the country with a 29-8 record. Nebraska is ranked third with a 25-12 record, while Vanderbilt is the fifth-ranked team with a 23-15 record.

Other ranked teams competing include Stephen F. Austin (eighth), Mount St. Mary’s (13th), Delaware State (14th), Maryville (15th), Tulane (16th), Monmouth (23rd) and Prairie View A&M (25th). Unranked teams Grambling State, Valparaiso and St. Francis-Pa. will also compete.
