The field for the 2010 United States Bowling Congress Intercollegiate Team Championships has been determined following sectional qualifying tournaments held this weekend.

Sectional qualifiers were held March 13-14 at four sites - AMF Parkway Lanes in Allentown, Pa.; Holiday Bowl-Brainerd in Chattanooga, Tenn.; Landmark Lanes in Peoria, Ill.; and the South Point Hotel and Casino Bowling Center in Las Vegas. The ITC sectionals consist of 32 Baker System games each day for a total of 64 Baker games.

The top four men's teams and top four women's teams at each sectional, based on total pinfall, earned spots in the 2010 USBC Intercollegiate Team Championships. The ITC will be held April 14-17 at the El Paso (Texas) Convention and Performing Arts Center.
