Iowa High School State Bowling Tournament to Remain at Waterloo’s Cadillac XBC through 2022

       The Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union (IGHSAU) and the Iowa High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) have signed a contract with Cadillac XBC to have the three-day Iowa High School Co-Ed State Bowling Tournament remain in Waterloo through 2022.

       “Waterloo and Cadillac XBC have demonstrated their willingness to partner with us as host for our state championship,” said IGHSAU Executive 
Director Jean Berger. “Their commitment to continuing their facility improvements is a true investment in the championship experience for our bowlers.  We are thrilled about remaining in Waterloo for another three years.”
      “The IHSAA appreciates the hospitality and welcoming approach extended by the staff at Cadillac Lanes and the Waterloo/Cedar Falls community,” said IHSAA Executive Director Tom Keating. ” We are pleased to renew our agreement to host the Co-ed State Bowling Championships there.  Cadillac Lanes is a terrific facility to host our young people at this exciting event.”
    Cadillac XBC has been the home of the Iowa High School State Co-Ed Bowling Tournament since 2018. Prior to the move to Waterloo, Des Moines’ Plaza Lanes hosted the State Bowling Tournament since the IGHSAU sanctioned the sport in 2007. Bowling became a co-ed state tournament when the IHSAA sanctioned it in 2010.
  “We want Waterloo to become the mecca of high school bowling in Iowa,” said Mick Hackbarth, General Manager of Cadillac XBC. “We have enjoyed our partnership with the IGHSAU and IHSAA as being the host site of the Co-Ed State Bowling Tournament. Cadillac XBC is committed to providing Iowa’s high school bowlers with a premier bowling venue.”

   Cadillac XBC is owned by The Bowlers Group, consisting of Rich and Kathy Eighme, Fran and Linda Eighme and Zach Beschorner.
