Southern women's bowling returns to action Friday as the Jaguars host the SWAC Western Round-up Jan. 20-22 at Metro Bowl. Southern is coming off a 13th place finish at the Mid-Winter Classic in Jonesboro, Ark. hosted by Arkansas State.

This weekend's round-up is the first of two East/West Round-ups held during the 2012 season. Competition begins on Friday with round-robin play against each team in the conference. Competition continues on Saturday and concludes on Sunday.

All matches will count in the divisional and conference standings. The win-loss percentage from the divisional play only at the round-ups will be used in the division standings. The team with the best division records within each division will claim the Eastern and Western Division titles. The top three finishers from each division will advance to the SWAC post-season tournament.

Individual all conference awards will also be determined by the round-ups. The All-SWAC team will consist of a five-bowler team with the highest bowling averages in conference play.  

The SWAC East Round-up will take place on Feb. 17-19 at Fannin Lanes in Jackson, Miss hosted by Jackson State. The SWAC Bowling Championship Tournament is scheduled for March 2-4 in Arlington, Texas.
