Ethan Chambers, Jesus Gutierrez, Brandon Rother, Flynn Iott; Avery Domaguin

        Brandon Rother completed a dream weekend, while Jesus Gutierrez needed overtime to taste victory for the first time, in terrific JBT Southern California Conference action at Mira Mesa Lanes in San Diego.

        Bowlers competed in the always-dramatic 'super survivor' format, where the low game and low totals are eliminated each game.  Eleven scratch survivors were carved down to five, and in that all-important penultimate round, Brendan Bobersky bowed out with low, game, while Marshall Degnan and Brandon Howard, a victim of two brutal pocket 7-10s, were eliminated on totals, leaving Elias O'Hollaren and previous day's champ Brandon Rother as the last two survivors.  Elias had earlier beaten Rother for the U17 subdivision win, but could not strike no matter what he tried on the right hand lane in the final game.  Rother stayed clean and that made the difference as he won the match for the weekend sweep, and fifth overall career JBT title for the rapidly improving Speedy B!

        The handicap division took an extra round to get from fourteen down to five, and in that round, Jonathan Hernandez was eliminated on low game, Ace Ventura went out on totals, and by one pin, Ethan Chambers joined them on the sidelines while pinfall leader Flynn Iott and Jesus Gutierrez advanced to the final.  Both bowlers bowled well in the final, and in the end Gutierrez needed spare-8 to win.  Jesus got the spare, but a 7-count on the fill tied the match and forced the first title match rolloff in quite a while.  Eleven year-old Iott hung in there, but could only watch as Gutierrez cane up with spare-turkey in overtime to finally wrap up the win and first career JBT title.

        Avery Domaguin had by far the best girls scratch results of the weekend, again winning that subdivision title.  Jai Kankariya rolled out with any brand of Brunswick ball of his choice thanks to our terrific title sponsor.  Thanks to all for coming out, and Mira Mesa for being great hosts.  Want in on all this fun?  Check out our schedule and come on down!

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.
