TOP BOWLERS IN STATE HEAD TO SYRACUSE FOR THE
NYSPHSAA BOWLING CHAMPIONSHIPS  

By David Anes, NYSPHSAA Intern Spring 2020
 

The 2020 New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) Bowling Championships will be hosted by Section III at Strike-N-Spare Lanes in Syracuse from Friday, March 13 through Sunday, March 15. Both boys and girls events will be conducted simultaneously.

“The staff at AMF Strike-N-Spare always does a first-rate job accommodating our event,” stated Mike O’Connell, Boys Bowling State Coordinator. “Attendance at our State Championship has steadily increased over the past six years to the point where we’ve actually added an entire day to the tournament. We hope this year will be better than ever having both the benefit of prior experience and the support of the great staff from the NYSPHSAA office.” ­

This year marks the 54th annual NYSPHSAA Bowling State Tournament. Since 1999, this will be the seventh year that Section III has hosted, and the second consecutive year at Strike-N-Spare Lanes. Since 2018, both boys and girls bowling have been divided into two divisions allowing for even more exciting, competitive play. The venue’s size and central location proved ideal for all athletes, coaches, and spectators last March with its second highest attendance in tournament history.

Spectators can purchase tickets online prior to the event for $8 or on-site for $10 by clicking here. Listed below is the schedule for the Championship weekend:
