Sectional assignments are based on the Team Ranking System points earned in USBC Collegiate-certified competition throughout the season. USBC Collegiate attempts to place no more than two of the top eight schools and no more than four of the top 16 schools in a sectional based on final TRS totals. Sectional qualifier fields are determined by taking geographic distance, economics and field size into consideration.
The sectionals will consist of 32 Baker games each day for a total of 64 Baker games. The top four teams based on total pinfall in each division following the completion of competition at each sectional will advance to the 2013 xbowling Intercollegiate Team Championships.
In addition, these four locations will host qualifying for the 2013 xbowling Intercollegiate Singles Championships on March 8. Competitors at each of the four sectional events will bowl six games with 16 women - the top four women at each sectional plus eight additional selections - advancing to the national singles tournament on April 16 at Sun Valley Lanes in Lincoln, Nebraska.
