Holiday Bowl

champs Alex Yoder & William Enstminger

        William Entsminger and Alex Yoder opened up the 2009-2010 JBT NM-TX Conference season with convincing wins at Skidmore's Holiday Bowl in Albuquerque.

        Troy Gaudette opened up the scratch division stepladder finals with a 204-171 win over Arizona's "Iceman", Labriel Leach.  Gaudette, a West Texas A&M college bowler, then beat Ryan Scheer 202-166, and followed with a 184-163 win over A&M teammate Seth Rutledge, to reach the title match.

        Top seed Entsminger had led the event since game four, and the defending NM-TX Bowler of the Year left no doubt as to the result of this match, as he strung the first ten strikes for a 289-173 win, the second victory of his JBT career.

        Josh Helmick began the handicap division stepladder finals with a 197-187 squeaker over Tim Baribeau.  Seth Jaramillo, apparently recovered from his multiple injuries riding various vehicles, then defeated Helmick 214-204, and followed with a 246-230 thriller over Sam Zermeno, to reach the title match.

        Top seed Alex Yoder led not just his family (two brothers also bowled, and dad Paul is one of New Mexico's best bowlers) but the event, and much like Entsminger, came up with a huge title match performance to back up his already outstanding day.  His 267-208 win was good for his first career JBT title.

        Both Alex and William rolled to their wins using Ebonite equipment, earning an extra $100 bonus from our great title sponsor.  Over $1,700 in scholarships were awarded to the field- want in on all this fun and excitement for all ages and averages?  Come on out to the next JBT event, it's as simple as that!
