champs Clifford Robbins & Jason Gootzeit, with finalists

        Clifford Robbins and Jason Gootzeit claimed JBT titles in exciting Arizona Conference action at Let It Roll in Phoenix.

        Scores were good throughout the day, but all four scratch finalists struggled on the stepladder pair, beginning with Cerell Cardines' 179-156 win over Chris Mayes.  Robbins then came on and edged Cardines 189-192 to advance to the title match.  Elias O'Hollaren, who already beat Cesar Padilla for the U17 title, was hoping to sweep the day, but couldn't get anything going in the final.  Clifford is one of the best frame-fillers on Tour, and was able to just enough to win the match 172-156, good for his first scratch and fourth career JBT title.

        Jason Gootziet, conversely, had no trouble in the handicap stepladder, giving his three opponents little chance in a roar up the rungs.  He beat newcomer Harrison Cole in round one 227-201, and followed with a 255-215 win over first time finalist Conner Pendergrass to get to the final.  Top seed Kaitlin Pennington had been great all day and bowled a fine 227 win the final, but Gootziet saved his best for last, coming up with a huge 279 for the win and first career JBT title.

        Madison Holman continued her hot run with a win over first time finalist Lindsay Griem 215-194 for the Priority Girls scratch win.

        Big thanks to the team at Let It Roll for allowing us to host a fun and safety-oriented event.  Top bowlers now move on to the Arizona Invitational, featuring a $1,000 top scholarship!
