champs Skyler McGowan & Ben Heitmann; Jacob Heitmann, Alayna Purdy, TJ Rock, Zach Greim, Leoj Chin
Skyler McGowan and Ben Heitmann earned JBT titles in terrific dual So Cal / Mojave Conference action at Victorville's Victor Bowl.
Michael Marmolejo outpaced a very high scoring field en route to the #1 seed for matchplay, but #16 Ricky Pollom, who won a tiebreaker over Daniel Hong just to get in, suddenly had the big strike strings to oust him. Pollom fell to Zach Greim in the next round, who then was able to beat Elias O'Hollaren, who earlier fired a 299 game, to get to the finale. On the other side of the bracket, McGowan came from the 6 seed to beat Samantha Conti, Ryan Lee, and TJ Rock to get to the title game. The final appeared to be going the way of the red-hot Greim, but a late error allowed McGowan the opportunity to strike in the tenth to win. Skyler calmly did just that, earning the second title of his JBT career with the exciting win.
The handicap field was led by Josh Karney, who thrilled the packed house with a perfect 300 to close out the qualifying round. He got past Lawrence Buhain in a tough first round, but Jacob McGough halted his run in round two. McGough then fell to Alayna Purdy, who advanced on to the title game. The other side of the bracket was controlled by the Heitmann family, as 3 seed Jacob and 2 seed Ben advanced to play each other, with little brother Ben coming out victorious. In the title match, Alayna struggled a bit and Ben took advantage for a big win, earning his first career JBT title with the victory.
Rock was consoled with a win over Karney for the day's U17 title, while Conti completed a sweep of the Priority Girls Scratch weekend with a win over Jazelle Lampkin.
