champs Anthony Schanen & Avery Domaguin; Kateyln Abigania, Emily Schrider; Solomon Salama; Elias O'Hollaren
Anthony Schanen enjoyed a breakthrough win, while Avery Domaguin just keeps on winning, earning titles in exciting JBT Southern California Conference action at Keystone Lanes in Norwalk.
Bowlers competed in the exciting Super Survivor format: after qualifying, the low overall game and the lowest overall totals are eliminated game by game until only the champ remains. In the scratch division, twelve survivors were carved down to three, and in that high scoring round, Garrett Lee (241) and Schanen (237) eliminated Ryan Lee (228) to set up the title game.
Schanen has made numerous finals without a win, while Lee is an up and coming star with the east coast JBT's Vegas Open win under his belt. The match remained close throughout, but in the end Anthony had just enough left to mop up the win and finally savor that long awaited first career JBT title.
``` A whopping 24 handicap survivors were eventually carved down to four, and that ensuing round couldn't have been more exciting. Nathan Chambers rolled 201 but had to bow out with the low game. Emily Schrider went from last in pinfall to a brilliant 295 game to jump to second at +281, Avery Domaguin barely held on to her pinfall lead at +298, leaving Stephanie Hong, who despite a 254 game that included five in a row on her lower average, could 'only' get to +266, thus eliminated on low total pinfall. After that tenth game, only 32 pins separated first to last- wow!
That left Emily and Avery to battle it out for the title, and the two young ladies put on another excellent show, with Domaguin's tenth frame spare eventually enough to defeat a great effort from Schrider, and capture the 5th title of her still very young JBT career.
The day's Priority Girls Scratch subdivision event went to U12 National Champ Katelyn Abigania, who got by Domaguin 214-210 in another terrific final match. Solomon Salama completed another solid day with a win over Garrett Lee for the day's U17 title.
