champs Harley Sweigart and Andrew Chan with co-owner Paula Vidad
Harley Sweigart and Andrew Chan picked up JBT titles in exciting dual conference action at Revolutions Barstow Bowl.
After five qualifying games, bowlers competed in 'survivor', with the lowest bowler on each pair eliminated until only one champion remained standing. Ten scratch qualifiers were carved down to four, and in those matches, Wesley Low stopped Cerell Cardines 241-223, and Sweigart outstruck Dallas Leong in an exciting 259-247 match.
In the ensuing title match, Sweigart continued the solid bowling that has carried him for most of his 2015 performances, and his tenth frame strike locked up a 236-223 victory over Low. It's the sixth title of Harley's JBT career.
Twenty handicap survivors were eventually whittled down to the final four, with Andrew Chan eliminating Kyle Gilbert, and Jopfel Gafate stopping Matt Baker in that round, to set up the title match.
Chan's previous best JBT finish was third, while Gafate is a tough two time champ, but both bowlers struggled in the title match this time. In the end, Chan put enough late marks together to scrape out a 193-177 win, earning the first title of his JBT career,
Ashley Dunn and Randi Speiler went at it yet again in the day's girls title match. Speiler made a great ball change and struck out all the way from the sixth, but Dunn gave her no chance at a comeback, blasting away for a 255-224 win and yet another Women's Series title.
