champs Kyle Duster, Heather Penatzer, and Amanda Atkin
Another thrilling finish at Antelope left Kyle Duster with a share of an unbreakable record, while Heather Penatzer and Amanda Atkin also achieved big goals, in exciting Arizona Conference JBT action.
All-Conference points leader Zack Long began the handicap division stepladder finals with a 219-188 win over Bex Boyko. Zack then stopped Sebastian Polhill 246-207. Amanda Atkin then turned the tables on Long with an exciting 222-219 win to advance to the title match.
Top seed Zach Rapp has had some painful second place finishes lately, all to much younger bowlers, so he was probably relieved to see someone near his own age for once. Unfortunately for Rapp it was the same result though, as Amanda bowled a strong game for a 227-204 win, and the third title of her JBT career.
KJ Martinez sent recent ASU graduate Ben Canfield home to San Diego wit ha 193-164 win to begin the scratch division stepladder finals. In match two, Martinez did something hardly anyone has been able to do lately and nobody could do this weekend- send Keith Fung to the sidelines- winning the match 217-210. Kyle Duster then put up a big number to stop Martinez 242-226 to advance to the final match.
Top seed Heather Penatzer showed the guys how it's done all day long, tossing 750+ in the semifinals to run away with the number one spot. She defended her seed well with an excellent 246 game, but could only watch with all of us as Duster ran the front nine to run away with the match. Kyle finished it off with a perfect tenth frame, firing the 7th perfect 300 game in JBT title match history. The watershed moment was good for the ninth title of his JBT career.
Penatzer was still a winner on the day, as she and Amanda Atkin squared off in the girls' title match, with Heather winning 224-188. It's Heather's third win, qualifying her for the Girls TPC this July.
