Bowling is unique among high school sports because each match consists of an individual and a team component. Each of five bowlers bowl two individual games. The individual games are followed by four Baker games, or team games, in a normal match. Each bowler bowls two of the ten frames in the game and the winner of the match is the team with the highest pin total -- the sum of the individual games and the Baker games.
