champs Ronnie Fujita & Matthew Green
Ronnie Fujita wore pink, while Matthew Green was tickled pink, as each won JBT titles in exciting Southern California Conference action at Ventura's Buena Lanes.
34-time champ Cameron Smith opened the scratch division stepladder finals with a 225-163 win over Mark Myers. Smith then edged Luke Holley in a low scoring battle 181-153. Fujita then came on to defeat Smith 233-174 to advance to the title match.
Top seed Ashley Dunn was the toast of the scratch division all day, using a 270 game to help her easily top the field on a challenging pattern. However, Fujita seemed to be getting stronger, and despite a few great split conversions from Dunn, Ronnie cruised to a 214-179 win, and the fourth title of his JBT career, keeping him alive in the Bowler of the Year race.
Clint Strawmyer began the handicap division finals with a 195-171 win over first time finalist Secilia Kalvelage. Strawmyer then got past Shelby Dempsey 210-189, before Marguerite Evans stopped Strawmyer 190-170 to move on to the title game.
Top seed Matthew Green took over in game five and never looked back. In a close title match, Green edged Evans 212-199, good for the first title of Matthew's career, while Marguerite endures another runner-up finish.
Brittany Kolatzny upset Dunn 185-174 to win the Impact Bowling JBT Women's Series event. It's her third win, qualifying her for the JBT Girls TPC this July.
