champs Brandon Jensen & Daniel Johnson
Brandon Jensen and Daniel Johnson each scored landmark victories in exciting JBT PacNW Conference action at the beautiful Acme Bowl in Tukwila.
Bowlers competed in the exciting new 'pick your survivor' format, which works just like regular survivor, except the higher seeds get to choose who they want on their pair in low-bowler-out single game matches. Gabe Bogner fired 288 en route to the scratch division top seed, but fell in the quarterfinal round, still good enough for 5th place. In the all-Oregonian semifinal matches, Connor Jackley doubled in the tenth to oust Brandon Myers 222-215, while Brandon Jensen outstruck Nick Devlin 246-237 to set up the title game.
Jensen has come back very strong in his return to JBT action, while Jackley, the defending Invitational champ, has showed no signs of slowing down from last season's strong finish. The well-bowled title match came down to the tenth frame, and when Connor couldn't get the first strike, Jensen escaped with a 223-214 win, and a first career scratch title to go with a previous handicap division win.
In handicap division semifinal matches, Daniel Johnson beat Michael Creel 231-181, and Zoe Mahn ousted top seed Kaytelyn Denune 207-176 to set up the title match. Mahn was looking for a hot start to avoid the points bubble she's found herself on each of the last two seasons, while Johnson was enjoying the best result of his JBT career by far. In the title game, it was Johnson who was able to keep the momentum going, as he ran away with a 246-189 win, good for the first title of his JBT career.
Elise Yates won the previous day's Women's Series event as the #2 seed, but she had the tables turned on her this time. She easily grabbed the top seed (while finishing 7th in the main tournament), but AJ Schock ground out a 155-142 win in the title game for her second career Women's win.
