The Rockford Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (RACVB) and The Cherry Bowl are proud to announce the Illinois High School Association’s (IHSA) Girls Bowling State Finals will take place in the Rockford region through 2027.
RACVB, The Cherry Bowl and other local partners have worked together to host this championship tournament in the Rockford region since 1993. RACVB and The Cherry Bowl submitted a proposal in May 2022 that won IHSA’s commitment to continuing this partnership for the next five years.
During this tournament the top girl bowlers with the highest pin count for both rounds in the sectional competitions advance to the IHSA state final tournament. Top teams, individual bowlers and a wheelchair division from throughout the state compete in this tournament.
“Hosting this elite girls bowling tournament year after year has created an invaluable partnership for the RACVB, The Cherry Bowl, IHSA and so many others involved and to receive IHSA’s commitment for the next five years is such a big win for our entire community,” said Lindsay Arellano, RACVB vice president of sales and service. “We work very closely with our hospitality industry partners to ensure large-scale tournaments, such as this one, are a success so a big thank you is in order to all involved who continue to make this happen.”
