BOWL EL PASO
scratch champ Daniel Hall & everything else champ Kallista Fritts
Daniel Hall and Kallista Fritts captured JBT titles in exciting Texas-New Mexico Conference action at Bowl El Paso.
Nathan Nguyen began a climb up the scratch division stepladder with a 247-186 win over Rashaad Jordan. Nguyen then escaped from Harley Sweigart 212-204. Nick Myers then stopped Nguyen 207-174 to reach the title match.
Top seed Daniel Hall has been oh-so-close to that elusive first title, while Myers was enjoying great success in his first ever scratch division event. Hall's experience won out this time, as he cruised in the final game 240-172 to finally capture his first JBT title.
Kloey Kielich began the handicap stepladder with a 196-173 win over Antonio Lara. Kielich kept rolling along in game two, getting past Steven Stophel 239-143. Kallista Fritts then halted Kielich's run with a 260-128 win to advance to the title match.
Top seed Holly Redfearn had taken away the top seed from Fritts with a big semifinal round, and bowled very well in the title match too, but she could not stop the runaway train that Kallista was becoming. She defeated Redfearn 248-223 for the title, the fifth of her JBT career. However, she was just beginning her winning ways. She also beat Myers for the U17 title, and Lauren Jaramillo for the Priority Girls scratch title, becoming the first bowler to ever pull off that 'triple crown' in the same day- wow!
