MIRA MESA LANES
champs Zach Greim & Nathan Ginsburg with Ryan Ginsburg, Ethan Ash, Avery Domaguin, Elias O'Hollaren, Andrea Martinez
Zach Greim and Nathan Ginsburg earned JBT titles in exciting Southern California Conference action at San Diego's Mira Mesa Lanes.
The scratch division stepladder finals' first match was illustrative of the day's challenging pattern, as Harley Sweigart ground his way to a 160-148 win over Gael Egana. Sweigart made good adjustments to get to 203 next game, but 12 year-old star in the making Elias O'Hollaren strung the strikes for a 228 win, advancing to his first career scratch title match.
Top seed Zach Greim has been on a roll this year, and continued it here in his home center with a huge 289 game that helped lift him to the number one spot. Elias was looking to become one of the very youngest scratch winners in JBT history, but Greim, still a youngster himself, was not to be denied, striking out late for a 248-215 win and his fifth career JBT title.
Ethan Ash began the handicap finals with a222-203 win over his buddy Ryan Ginsburg. Ryan's brother Nathan then avenged the family with a 243-225 win over Ash. Andrea Martinez grabbed the top spot with beautiful bowling all day, but could not fins a consistent look in the final game. Nathan was able to win the final 218-201 to earn the first JBT title of his career.
Avery Domaguin captured the day's Priority Girls Scratch event with a 184-130 win over Martinez, while O'Hollaren survived a dramatic finish for a 174-165 win over Daniel Hong to earn the U-17 win.
