champs Jared McNeal & Thomas Nute
Jared McNeal and Thomas Nute captured JBT titles in exciting Pacific Northwest Conference action at Longview's Triangle Bowl
John Jordan opened the scratch division stepladder finals with a thrilling 247-244 win over Cameron Weier. Jordan Yoke then continued his JBT hot streak with a 231-187 win over Jordan. Yoke then got past another bowler on a tear lately, Marshall Kent, 225-161, to reach the title match.
Top seed McNeal teamed with Yoke (and Jordan's dad) to win the Pac NW Doubles back in December, and as often happens betweens opponents who are friends, the match was a little lower scoring. In the end, McNeal earned a 192-183 win, capturing his first JBT singles title, and 2nd overall JBT title. McNeal's 299 game was also the highest of the event.
Nute climbed the ladder en route to his second career title. He began with a 242-193 win over Kolby Crowell. He then got past Milwaukie champ Aaron Yoon 262-221, and then in another high scoring match got past Dalton Camosso 263-244 to reach the final.
Top seed Tyler Boe had enjoyed one of his best JBT events, leading since game four, but Nute was riding what proved to be an unstoppable wave of momentum. Thomas fired another big strike string en route to a 259-173 defeat of Boe for the victory, and a 1026 four-game total (with pins) in the stepladder.
