'The Primo' at BOWLERO WEST COVINA
Jerry Primavera, Hayden Fernandez, Porfirio Jimeno III, Prestin Frazee, Stephanie Hong, Michael Marmolejo, Sebastian Huffman, William Galvez, Madison Holman
Michael Marmolejo and William Galvez picked up JBT titles in exciting action on day one of 'The Primo', hosted by Bowlero West Covina.
Marmolejo just barely hung on to advance to the stepladder finals, then caught fire, beginning with a 254-211 win over Sebastian Huffman. He turned it up even more with a 258-188 win over Solomon Salama to advance to the title match. Top seed Prestin Frazee had his best event of his JBT career, but couldn't find the same look in the finals. Marmolejo took advantage for a 204-181 win, earning him a long-awaited second career JBT title.
Hayden Fernandez opened up the handicap division stepladder finals with a 232-200 win over Stephanie Hong. Porfirio Jimeno III then stopped Fernandez 244-208 to move on to the final match. William Galvez moved up from eighth to first with a great second round, and remained strong in the final. Jimeno, also appearing in his first final, bowled a good game, but could not keep up with William's pace, and Galvez earned his first career JBT title with a 233-209 win.
Fernandez' great day was good enough to also get him into the U17 finales, but fellow Las Vegan Huffman was able to beat him 290-165 for that title. Girls Scratch went to Madison Holman, continuing her fantastic season with a 205-169 win over Emily Cheesman.

|TOTAL AWARDED THIS EVENT: $2,808|
Date: Saturday May 7, 2022 This is ONE tournament that is one day long. Sunday is a separate one day event. You can bowl only Sunday, only Saturday, or both. HOWEVER, a 'primo' feature is that if you bowl BOTH days, there is a bonus prize list and bonus point list based on your combined two-day performance.
Start Time: Saturday qualifying squad at 2 PM, one squad only.
Re-entries?: There's only one qualifying squad, so there are no re-entries this event..
Reservations: Please email email@example.com to reserve a spot. You can prepay (not required) at the 'Prepaying' section of this website. Reservations (paid or unpaid) must check in no later than 15 minutes before start time. At that time, all bowlers will be taken on a first come, first serve basis until the field is full.
Format: Qualifying round is 5 games. The top 40% advance to a 2-game semifinals, with the top 4 advancing to a stepladder finals.
Divisions/ Averages: Scratch or handicap. It is the bowlers' choice of division. Also, everyone age 16 or under as of 8/1/21 is automatically entered in the U-17 side event. Also, every female is automatically entered in the Girls Scratch side event. If this is your first JBT event this season, we will be asking for average info. In most cases, your highest average from any current form of organized competition of at least 15 games is what we need. If you bowl in multiple leagues / clubs, bring everything and we'll sort it out for you. After your first JBT event, your average is re-rated before every JBT event according to JBT rules. Please see JBT Rule 13 for complete details.
Points: This event counts for So Cal and All-Conference points. In addition, if you bowl both days this weekend, there is a 'primo' bonus point list based on your combined final standings, with the same finishing position values as usual. Points qualify you for the big money season-ending Invitationals and Touring Players Championship, so get all you can. Visit the 'statistics' section of the website to check on your points. As the end of the season, the top 32 in So Cal points, plus anyone who had a top-4 finish in a So Cal event this season, advance to their respective Invitationals.
Entry fee: $50 handicap; $60 scratch. Scholarship brackets are available for $2 each. Raffle tickets for Ebonite bowling balls, and our PowerBowl and '26' jackpots, are available on-site.
Covid details: JBT events follow- at least- all local Covid safety protocols, which you must be prepared for. Please stay posted so you're not surprised about anything required of you.
Scholarships: 1:6 in each division earn scholarships, scratch and handicap. Minimum prizes in scratch are $400, $200, $100, $60. In handicap, $400, $250, $125, $75. Bowlers must finish in the top 4 once this season to qualify for that conference's Invitational, which features $1,000 for first place. Bowlers who finish in the top 20 in a conference's points race, or the top 100 in all-conference points, qualify for the Touring Players Championship, featuring $2,000 for first.
Lane conditions: conditions vary from event to event, and are not posted prior to the event (unless otherwise announced). Some events do not post the pattern until after qualifying. Be ready for anything- it makes you a better bowler! Check out previous patterns and corresponding cut scores at the 'lane conditions' section of this website.
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.
