champs Timothy LeCount & Harley Sweigart; Solomon Salama, Elias O'Hollaren, Jaclyn & Allison Azvedo
Harley Sweigart completed a dominant weekend to tie a record, while Timothy LeCount survived to win his first JBT title, in terrific Southern California Conference action at Lakewood's Cal Bowl.
Bowlers competed in 'super survivor', where the low score and low overall totals are eliminated game by game. The scratch division was carved down to a final four, and in that game, Kyle Reed and Matt Chesnut were eliminated, leaving yesterday's finalists Sweigart and Solomon Salama to go at it again for the title.
Harley had shot 268 the game before, and Salama might have figured he wouldn't do that again. He didn't- instead, he blasted 279, and for the second straight day, all he could do is congratulate the bowler who has just tied the all tie JBT record for title by a lefty, with his 36th career JBT victory.
One thing Sweigart can't take from Salama is his U17 dominance, and Solomon did sweep that subdivision with a win over Kevin Banaag.
Eighteen handicap survivors were cut down to the final six, and ELias O'Hollaren, Zach Greim, and Timothy LeCount survived out of that round to reach the final three. In that game, Griem (183) bowed out while LeCount (208) and O'Hollaren (236) advanced to the final game. That final was all LeCount, as an early string was plenty to hold up against Elias, and earn him the first title of his JBT career.
In an all-sibling finale in the Priority Girls Scratch subdivision, Allison Azvedo outlasted sister Jaclyn 206-162 for that title.
