WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

The most decorated college bowling teams in America will head to Baton Rouge next week to compete in the Intercollegiate Team Championships.

Between the men's and women's bowling squads, Wichita State owns 20 national championships. The men have eleven and the women have nine.

This year's women's squad is ranked No. 1 in the country, while the men's team is ranked third.   

"There's nothing easy about it, but we've been fortunate enough to have some good players, some good teams, and get there most years than not. It happens occasionally that we don't make it but we've been fortunate enough to get there a lot," head coach Gordon Vadakin said.

The Intercollegiate Team Championships start on Wed., April 19.
