champs Jakob Butturff & Jarred Starr-Moncayo
Two JBT veterans added another JBT title to their impressive credentials in exciting Arizona Conference action at Glendale's Glenfair Lanes.
Bowlers competed in the exciting super-survivor format, where the low game and the lowest overall totals are eliminated game by game until only the victor remains standing. In the scratch division, ten survivors were carved down to four, and in that round Bryan Van Sickle went out with the low game, while Eric Hatchett was eliminated with the low overall total, leaving Jakob Butturff and Dallas Leong alive for the title game.
Dallas has a lot of title matches this season with not enough wins in those matches to satisfy him, and the always-tough Jakob wasn't about to reverse that trend. Buttruff poured on the strikes in the title game for a 253-209 win, earning the 31st title of his excellent JBT career.
On the day before the PBA"s Tournament of Champions, which happened to be lefty-dominated, the handicap division JBT lefties came up strong, as in a five-way semifinal match, righties Zach Rapp, John Newton, and Justin Lawrence were all eliminated, leaving Mathew Adragna and Jarred Starr-Moncayo left alive to vie for the title. Moncayo got red-hot at the end of last season, and he showed that form again here, winning a close match with Mathew 212-210 for the 5th title of his JBT career.
Gillian Coyle defeated Adel Wahner 181-154 to earn the day's Women's Series title on a day where the ladies struggled on the very demanding pattern.
Big thanks to the team at Gelnfair for a great job hosting us at one of the most tournament-friendly centers anywhere. Want in on the most excitement in youth bowling? Just show up at a JBT event and come have fun!
