USBC’s Intercollegiate Team Championships (ITC), first contested in 1975, is the pinnacle event of the college bowling season. The ITC brings together the top 16 men’s and top 16 women’s teams in the country to compete for national titles.
By either winning a conference or being one of the top-ranked teams in the country, schools advance to post season sectional qualifying events. The top four men’s teams and top four women’s teams from each sectional tournament earn berths into the ITC.
“We have a world-class facility only a few miles from campus, world class coaches and a dedicated staff. Now, we have these wonderful recruits who are going to add to our dynasty of regional and national champions,” Rice added.
“These three gentlemen bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in coaching young adults in the skills and mental toughness necessary to succeed in bowling competitively,” said Blair. “I’m very lucky to have them doing what it takes to make our first year special in varsity bowling competition.”
SIC is currently recruiting high school graduates and college students, both men and women, to be on its inaugural teams. Eachteam will consist of eight bowlers. Tuition waivers and other incentives are available to those qualifying for team membership.
