champs Duncan Whitaker & Do Kwon; Tyler Coates, Brian DeLuisa-Anderson; Jessica Holbrook
Duncan Whitaker and Do Kwon joined the JBT Champions club with exciting wins in Pacific Northwest Conference action at Eastmont Lanes in East Wenatchee.
Ethen Maxwell began the scratch division stepladder finals with a 190-187 escape from Brian DeLuisa-Anderson. Tyler Coates then stopped Maxwell to get to the title match. Coates has turned around his traditional slow starts by bowling fantastic all day lately, punctuated by a 289 second game here. However, top seed Duncan Whitaker was enjoying the best JBT result of his career. He turned a close match into a blowout with a late five-bagger, earning his first career JBT title with the 212-162 final score.
9 year-old Kwon has a game well beyond his years, and he showed it by climbing the handicap stepladder. He began with a 197-193 squeaker over Mackenzie Theophilus, and followed with a 218-178 win over Aubrey Harding. Top seed Carson Emerson was stuck behind the desk working yesterday, but was unleashed today and the relatively new bowler had a great day to get to the #1 spot. However, he struggled in the final game. Do slowed down as well, but had enough left for a 188-161 win, capturing the first title of his JBT career as well.
Keeping up theme, Jessica Holbrook earned her first Priority Girls Scratch win of the season with a win over Harding, and then skedaddled off to her graduation party! DeLuisa-Anderson swept the U17 events on the weekend, again beating Coates for that honor.
