champs Cortez Schenck & Tyler Thomas

        Cortez Schenck added an unbreakable record to his stellar resume, while Tyler Thomas reached the winner's circle for the first time, in exciting JBT Mojave Conference action at Suncoast.

        Schenck won all four matches in the scratch division stepladder finals, beginning with a 259-203 win over TJ Rock.  Cortez kept the strikes coming in a 266-214 round two win over Eric Hatchett, and followed with a 192-182 win over Randi Speiler to reach the title match.

        Zack Hattori was brilliant all day in leading the tournament wire to wire, but couldn't find the look on the right hand lane in the title match.  Meanwhile, Schenck recovered from the transition in the semifinal game to get locked in again in the final.  Bowling quickly, he strung the front nine in a hurry to end the match, and then threw three perfect strikes in the tenth for a 300-214 win.  The perfecto is the sixth ever in JBT title matches, and the win is the 48th of his JBT career.

        Scores were high in the handicap division as well, with Tyler Thomas opening the handicap division stepladder with a 273-243 win over Zack Long.  Thomas snuck by Kyle Rendon in round two 227-218, and followed with another close one, 207-198 over Paul Colyer, to reach the title match.

        8 year-old Daryus Alo kept up his amazing season by leading the event here, and held his own against Tyler's impressive charge up the stepladder.  A short count on Alo's fill ball left him at 241, and Thomas got the tenth frame mark he needed for a thrilling 244-241 win, and the first title of his JBT career. 

        Speiler's excellent day in the main tournament continued in the women's series, leading by a wide margin, but Dee Handley, who has been bowling well lately as well, spoiled the party in the girls' final, defeating Randi for the day's title.
