The Illinois High School Association's (IHSA) Board of Directors has voted to keep its Girls Bowling State Finals in Rockford for another five years, through the 2015-2016 school year.  The Rockford Area Convention & Visitors Bureau and Cherry Bowl Lanes developed and submitted the hosting proposal in response to a call for proposals from IHSA. The 2012 tournament will mark Rockford's 20th year in hosting the tournament, and the 40th year of the tournament.
