The Dexter/USBC High School All-American Team has been selected annually since the 2005-2006 season. Dexter Bowling and IBC Youth will continue to work together to determine the five male and five female USBC High School members for the team.
Each high school bowler selected receives a $1,000 scholarship and the team is honored at the Junior Gold Championships in July.
“It is important for Dexter Bowling to continue to award the achievements of high school bowlers,” Dexter Bowling Vice President Bud Clapsaddle said.
“During the past 11 years, the Dexter/USBC High School All-American Team annually has showcased 10 student-athletes who have made a tremendous impact for their schools on the lanes and in their communities. We’re excited to continue our partnership with IBC Youth to recognize outstanding student-athletes.”
Dexter Bowling also will continue to sponsor the coach and player luncheon at the Intercollegiate Team Championships.
“We appreciate Dexter Bowling for its continued commitment to high school and collegiate bowling,” said Gary Brown, IBC Youth Development Managing Director.
“High school bowling has seen tremendous growth since the first Dexter/USBC High School All-American Team was selected more than a decade ago and the team has become an integral part of high school bowling.”
Selection to Dexter/USBC High School All-American Team is based on the student-athlete’s high school bowling accomplishments, academic achievement, recommendations, extracurricular and community involvement, submitted essays and resumes. Bowlers must be nominated by their high school coach or athletic director.
