Liam Hardman; Katelyn Hiner, Alaina Degenstein, Sawyer Jones
Two bowlers tasted JBT victory for the first time, capturing titles in terrific JBT Pacific Northwest Conference action at the fantastic Kingpins Beaverton.
Bowlers competed in the exciting 'super survivor' format, where the low game and the lowest overall totals are eliminated. Fourteen scratch finalists were carved down to five, and in that penultimate round, Adam Jodoin was the +/- leader going in, but bowed out with the low game of 182. Bud Sicard (+129) and Andrew Guba (+132) were narrowly eliminated on lowest totals, leaving Liam Hardman and Mac Kaurin as the last two players standing. In the final game, Hardman stayed in control and won a long awaited first career JBT title with the victory over Mac.
In the handicap division's final five, everyone bowled well, but Kierra Wilcox's 189 was low game. Jazel Tiquia had the low total at +6, and Sawyer Jones went from fifth up to third with a big final game, locking up an Invitational spot with the big finish. That left yesterday's finalists to go at it again, a bit of a rarity, as Katelyn Hiner and Alaina Degenstein were the last two standing. Alaina was searching for the extremely rare third win in a row, but this time Katelyn got her revenge, defeating Degenstein for her first career JBT title.
Liam doubled up his fun with a win over Bud Sicard for the U17 subdivision win, while Degenstein avenged her title match loss with a win over Wilcox for the Girls Scratch win. Canada's Anabelle Chui, a winner in '27-ish' the other day, won the day's ball from the brands of Brunswick. Huge thanks to the team at Kingpins for another great job hosting our Tour.

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.
This reservation is an expectation that you will be bowling. PLEASE do not forget to contact us if you need to cancel or adjust your reservation. Repeated 'no-shows' may result in you not being able to reserve a spot. 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.
