Hunter Mayes, Brock Bivins, Ivan John, Jake Campbell, Aileen Linares, Jaxson Garton
Brock Bivins and Ivan John claimed JBT titles in an exciting wrapup to the Mountain Conference season at Silva Lanes in Albuquerque.
Chris Mayes began the scratch division stepladder finals with a 185-161 win over Josh Molloy. Bivins then prevented an all-Mayes title match with a 207-195 win over Chris to advance to the title match.
Top seed Hunter Mayes completed an all-Arizona scratch field, but it was really the Mayes brothers who ruled the day, combining to lead all rounds, and qualify 1-2 after five games. However, despite the #1 look Mayes has regained in recent weeks including here, Brock has been Mayes-kryptonite for most of the season, and it continued here. He kept grinding out the marks on a challenging pattern to squeak out a 203-191 win, good for the 9th title of his excellent JBT career.
Colorado's Jake Campbell made a last minute decision to join his buddies on a road trip, and it paid off for him, beginning with a 223-175 win over All-Conference points leader Kendall Bollea to begin the handicap stepladder finals. He followed with a 216-187 win over newcomer Jonas Romero to move on to the title match.
Ivan John found himself on the outside looking in at the Invitational when the day started, but quickly fixed that with a great performance to lead here. There were all sorts of tie possibilities headed into the tenth frame, but in the end Ivan squeaked out a 206-200 win for the second title of his JBT career.
Bollea also made both subdivision finals, but had a rough time of it there, as Jaxon Garton rolled a big game to beat her for the U17 win, and Aileen Linares kept her season-long dominance going with a win in Girls Scratch, her sixth in the Mountain Conference this season.
Big thanks to the whole team at Silva for their usual hospitality in a great hosting job. Top scorers now advance to the Mountain Invitational, featuring $1,000 top scholarships in scratch and handicap!

In most cases, your highest average from any current form of organized competition of at least 15 games is what we need.

Please see JBT Rule 13 for complete details.

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.
PLEASE do not forget to contact us if you need to cancel or adjust your reservation. This list may not be updated after the Friday of the event as we travel, etc. However, walk-ins / late entries are still gladly accepted as space permits. There is generally plenty of room for walk-ins / late entries, and we'll post here clearly if an event is nearing sellout or sold out.
