champs Gael Egana & Mark Wang; David Schneider, Katelyn Abigania, Jared Schiada, Joshua Abigania, Allex Zieg
Gael Egana and Mark Wang won landmark JBT titles, in sold-out Southern California Conference at Keystone Lanes in Norwalk.
After five games of qualifying, bowlers competed in 'pick your poison', where higher seeded bowlers pick who they want to bowl in matchplay. Sixteen scratch qualifiers were carved down to four, and in that round, Egana got by Joshua Abigania, and Allex Zieg defeated David Schneider to set up the title game. Zieg started strong but could never figure out the left lane, and Gael's tenth frame spare was enough for a 185-165 win, a long awaited first career scratch title, and sixth overall career JBT victory.
In a handicap division final four featuring nobody with a JBT title, Wang beat Tre Mitchell 217-183, and Jared Schiada fired a huge game in a 272-195 win over Emily Schrider to set up the finale. In a well bowled match by both, nine year-old Wang emerged with a 224-211 win, and his first JBT title- any age, any average is not just a slogan, it's a truth reiterated every week!
Gael also won the U17 subdivision, with a win over Solomon Salama, and Katelyn Abigania won Priority Girls Scratch over Kaitlynn Yukihiro.
