Matthew Garrett, Joshua Molloy, Kendall Bollea, Alexander Hughes
Josh Molloy and Kendall Bollea wrapped up a great weekend at Cactus with JBT titles in exciting Arizona Conference action.
After five games, top scorers moved on to head to head matchplay. CJ Todeschi qualified first in scratch, but #9 Payton Workman upset him in round two. #2 seed Matthew Garrett fared better, as he beat points leader Hunter Mayes, and then looked to add a SECOND perfect game to his day's resume, having fired one in qualifying, but a solid-8 pin stopped him in a 279-246 win over Kyle Ponzo to reach the title match. Molloy stopped Workman's run on his side of the bracket to advance and play Garrett. The title match turned into a grindout similar to the previous day's finale, and in the end Molloy had enough for the 187-183 win over Matthew, to claim the 8th title of his excellent JBT career.
It was similar results seeding-wise in the handicap division, as #1 Monroe Holt fell to #16 Susan Meinhardt. #2 Kendall Bollea had much better luck, defeating #15 Ian Holzwarth, #10 Alie Rose, and #3 Cameron Sager in a close one to reach the final. #4 Alexander Hughes escaped from the other half of the draw, stopping Monroe's sister Hannah Holt in the semifinal to move on to his first title match.
When Kendall wins, she often saves some of her best for last, and it was no different here, as she rolled a confident game to beat Hughes and capture her ninth career JBT title, putting her one behind all-time handicap title leader KJ Martinez. She doubled her haul by edging Mackenzie Paige for the Girls Scratch win as well, while in a rematch from Saturday, Daryus Alo beat Cesar Padilla for the U17 win.

Dress code: Anything goes EXCEPT tank tops, hats, gym shorts, clothing promoting alcohol, drugs, or firearms, or excessively ripped or short clothing, subject solely to the director's discretion. However, bowlers wearing slacks or dress shorts/skirts, and a 'name shirt' or PBA-style 'dye-sub' shirt, or college or high school team shirt, earn an extra 10 points on their season-long points total. If you're not sure about dress code, check with us. If you're new to us, the vast majority of the bowlers do dress in the 'bonus' dress code, and those points become very important, so plan accordingly.
