ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — The IHSA Girls Bowling State Finals will take place at the Cherry Bowl in Rockford next weekend, and the sporting event is expected to bring in about $100,000 to the local economy.

Five hundred players, coaches and fans, including 24 teams and 30 individual competitors, are expected to attend.

“It’s so rewarding to see what a youth bowler becomes and gets to this level,” said State Tournament Director Ann Buja. “It’s so exciting. This year we have a lot of new bowlers and teams here that have never been here before, so I expect a lot of new excitement from that group. You never know what’s going to happen at this tournament.”
