champs Jordan Plunkett & Luke Jordan
Jordan Plunkett kept on his season-long roll, while Luke Jordan dominated the day en route to his first JBT title, in exciting Pacific Northwest Conference action at Crosley Lanes.
Josh Jackson began his climb up the scratch division stepladder finals with a 238-233 win over Marshall Kent. Josh then got past Todd Hopfner 190-167, but then in the semifinal match he and Cameron Weier tied at 214, forcing our nervewracking one-shot rolloff which Jackson won 10-9 to advance to the finals.
Top seed Plunkett had led the event on the always-tricky Scorpion pattern since game four, and stayed in control the whole title match for a 220-193 win. The victory was his Pac NW-leading 9th of his JBT career, and gives him the edge for the Go Wireless Bowler of the Year award as the conference heads into its final weekend next month.
Dalton Camosso, making back-to-back finals on the weekend, began the handicap stepladder with a 199-186 victory over Kesley Abrahamsen. Kara Lieber then defeated Camosso 218-186, and followed with a 206-191 win over Nicole Stickler to reach her first career title match.
Top seed Luke Jordan is short in stature but big in talent, and ran the leaderboard here, on top after all eight games. He made a big run in the Main Event finals back in December, but had yet to win a JBT event, until now, when his 221-195 title match victory over Lieber earned him the first title of his JBT career.
