champs Wesley Low and Abby Franklin flank girls champ Randi Speiler and co-owner Paula Vidad
Wesley Low evened up his personal title count again, while Abby Franklin added another win to her collection, in dual Mojave and So Cal Conference action at Paula Vidad's Revolutions in Barstow.
13 year-old Evan Abram made his second scratch finals in three attempts, but veteran Randi Speiler came up with a clutch double to win their opening stepladder match 202-192. Cortez Schenck then ground out a 199-183 win over Speiler, and followed with another low-scoring win, this time 191-180 over Dallas Leong to move on to the title game.
Top seed Wesley Low made an increasingly squirrelly pattern look easy, firing 776 in the semifinals to grab the top seed. Schenck had no answers in the title game, and Wesley was able to cruise 203-171 to the win, good for the 22nd title of his JBT career, matching his JAT title total for an incredible double-resume.
8 year-old Daryus Alo continues to amaze, winning round one of the handicap division stepladder finals 235-226 over Jarred Starr-Moncayo. In the next game Daryus rolled a very respectable 218, but could only watch as Paul Colyer came up with twelve in a row for a perfect 300, the first of his career! The first game after a 300 is often a tough one, and Paul struggled a bit, letting veteran Abby Franlin take advantage for a 204-178 win and a trip to the title match.
Top seed Katie Kipler was right at home in Barstow, leading since round two in by far her best JBT performance of her young career. She slowed down a bit in the title match though, while Franklin finished strong again, winning the match 212-198 for the fifth title of her JBT career.
It was Speiler and Ashley Dunn for the day's girls title, and for the second time on the day Speiler got a tenth frame strike she needed, throwing the hit to beat Dunn 171-160 to split the weekend's women's titles.
