champs Derek Acuff & Nick Bruketta
Derek Acuff completed a rare feat, while Nick Bruketta returned to the winner's circle, in exciting JBT Pacific Northwest Conference action at Milwaukie's Kellogg Bowl.
Thomas Nute began the scratch division stepladder finals with a 226-169 win over points leader Nick Devlin. Acuff then stopped Nute in an exciting all-southpaw battle 231-228. In another all-lefty match, Derek beat Ryan Nikolas 226-177 to advance to the title match.
Top seed Brian Monnette took the lead from Acuff with a big semifinal set, and was eager to finally win his first JBT singles title. However, Acuff was determined to make his trip from Arizona worth it, and he did just that with a 230-212 title match win. It's Derek's 21st career JBT title, and he joins an elite club of bowlers to win JBT titles in all five conferences with the win!
Toby Shepherd began a climb up the handicap division stepladder finals with a 193-171 win over Nick Perini. Shepherd then eeked by first-time finalist Dayton Wickham 208-204. In the semifinal match, Johnny Leggett stopped Shepherd to advance to the title match.
Bruketta has had an up and down season after his near Bowler of the Year performance last year, but put it all together here to run a way with the top seed. Leggett put up a good battle in the title match, but Nick was just too much, winning the match for the fourth title of his JBT career.
Wylicia Faley qualified for the Girls TPC with a Women's Series title match 207-193 win over Elise Yates.
