LAS VEGAS - The Wichita State women and Webber International men claimed the top spots at the 2018 Collegiate Shoot-Out, a Tier I event in the 2018-2019 United States Bowling Congress Collegiate season.

The event was held over two days at the Gold Coast Hotel and Casino. The 27 women's and 36 men's varsity teams bowled six traditional games Wednesday and concluded competition Thursday with 16 Baker games.

Total pinfall for the event determined how many points teams received towards the Team Power Rankings. Placement in the Team Power Rankings will determine which teams compete in postseason play.
