champs Ben Stedman & Noah Martinez
Ben Stedman and Noah Martinez captured JBT titles in exciting Texas- New Mexico Conference action at Lubbock's Whitewood Lanes.
Newcomer Stefan Wood opened the scratch division stepladder finals with a 224-189 win over Zach Wojciechowski. Stedman then took over, defeating Wood 211-148, and following with a 216-211 squeaker over William Yoder to advance to the title match.
Top seed Jacob Gill was looking to finally break through for his first JBT title, but so was Stedman, and he was on a roll. Getting more confident as the match went on, he cruised past Gill 228-171 for the win, joining sister Olivia as JBT champs.
Veteran Lacey Shelton began the handicap stepladder finals with a 241-178 win over Texas Tech rookie Anish Roshan. Martinez then took over just like Ben did, beating Shelton 215-194, and following with a 190-181 squeaker over Lindsey Sanchez, to move on to the title match.
Top seed Jacob Marquis bowled great all day en route to grabbing the #1 seed, but struggled a bit in the title game against Martinez. Noah rolled a solid game to beat Jacob 229-188, and win the second title of his JBT career.
Olivia finished off a great day for the Stedman family, beating Adel Wahner 235-207, to win the day's Women's Series title.
