champs Trevor Hiatt & Brendan Hopkins
Trevor Hiatt and Brendan Hopkins captured JBT titles in exciting Pacific Northwest Conference action at The Epicenter in Klamath Falls.
Kelsey Abrahamsen broke through for her first scratch top five finish, and opened her first stepladder in style with a 201-169 win over Brandon Jensen. Brandon Myers then stopped Kelsey in a 213-210 squeaker. Local bowler Trevor Hiatt then ousted Myers 214-191 to advance to the title match.
Top seed Johnny Leggett grabbed the lead with a blistering 724 semifinal set. However, he was unable to maintain that momentum in the title match, as Hiatt came up with a big game in a 245-178 win that earned Trevor the first title of his JBT career.
Newcomer Gabriel Potter began the handicap division stepladder with a 227-187 win over Brian DeLuisa-Anderson. McKenna Jacobe then stopped Potter 200-176. Brendan Hopkins then threw a big game in a 267-206 win over Jacobe to advance to the title match.
Top seed Emily Hankins made a big splash in her first JBT event, leading most of the tournament to grab the top seed. However, Hopkins, a winner last month in Everett, had the experience in title matches, and showed it with a 249-216 win over Hankins, good for his second career JBT title.
Abrahamsen was also the top qualifier for the day's Women's Series event, but Shelby Miller came up with one of the highest games of the day in a 266-200 win over Kelsey for her first girls' title of the season.
