NDIANAPOLIS--The eight-team field competing at the 2016 National Collegiate Women's Bowling Championship was announced today by the NCAA Women’s Bowling Committee. 

The seeded field includes the following teams:

Participants
Nebraska
Arkansas State

Competition begins with qualifying rounds in which each team bowls one five-person regular team game against each of the other seven participating teams.  Teams will be seeded for bracket play based on their win-loss record during the qualifying rounds.  At the conclusion of the qualifying rounds, teams will then compete in best-of-seven Baker matches in the double elimination tournament.  In the Baker format, each of the five team members, in order, bowls a complete frame until a complete (10-frame) game is bowled.  A Baker match tied at 3½ a piece after seven games will be decided by a tiebreaker using the Modified Baker format.     

The Northeast Conference will host the championship, which will be held April 14-16 at Brunswick Zone Carolier in North Brunswick, New Jersey.  Tickets can be purchased on www.NCAA.com prior to the championship.
