Requirements for Scoring Records
scores bowled during the official high school regular season,
district tourrnament and state tournament are eligible for
record consideration. Both club and varsity matches are equally
eligible for scoring records.
it is prefered that high school bowling be certified by
the USBC (ABC sanctioned), it is not required provided
that the official state high school association bowling league
itself is not USBC certified.
the submitted scores can be verified by the official state
high school association or a director within an official state
high school association that is not USBC certified / ABC sanctioned,
then such scores will be considered.
AVERAGE Eligibility Requirements
Must have participated in at least two-thirds (2/3) of regular
season matches, AND...
- Must have participated in a minimum of six (6) matches in
a given season, AND...
- Must have participated in a minimum of twelve (12) games

- Only submissions providing contact information for both
the bowler and the individual submitting the scores will be
state runs its high school bowling tournament/league uniquely.
As a result, each state records page will vary in its display
of scoring records. The USHSBF respects that each state athletic
association has the right to manage its high school bowling
events as it sees fit.
part of the purpose of this website is to establish a standardized
set of records where every bowler from every state can be
compared equally. All records displayed in this website will
be consistent with rules and policies set forth by the United
States Bowling Congress (USBC) rulebook; specifically
rule 51b - 3 on page 22.
- 3 Qualifications
is as follows:
Three consecutive games must be bowled in USBC league or
tournament play to qualify for series awards. For average
requirements on average-based awards, see Rule 53.
..a. A series shall be figured
.. . 1) If more than three
but less than six games are bowled, use the first three
. .. 2) If six or more games
are bowled, use each succeeding set of three games following
the first three games.
..b. In tournament play, each
three-game series must be bowled in the same block.
..c. A series of games can
be bowled consecutively against one or more opponents.
..d. Games must be bowled on
the same date.
..e. Where a choice of awards
is available in any category, the member is entitled to
a choice of an
.......award for the first
score recorded. Any additional score in the same category
that fiscal year will be
by USBC, but will not qualify for an award.
multiple-game scoring records, there is an exception with
USHSBF scoring records. The composite pinfall (even
if it is across blocks) will be totaled and will be eligible
for a USHSBF scoring record "TOTAL".
record totals will begin from the first game of a block or
round, with the composite total building from that point.
This is, again, due to the fact that no two states follow
the same format in high school league, districts/sectionals/regionals
and state finals.
submit a score or scores from high school bowling, send it
