BOWL EL PASO
champs Stefan Wood & Marguerite Evans
Stefan Wood and Marguerite Evans survived tough fields to capture JBT titles in terrific JBT New Mexico- Texas Conference action at Bowl El Paso.
Bowlers competed in 'super survivor', where the lowest game and the lowest overall totals were eliminated game by game until only one bowler survived. The scratch division was carved from ten semifinalists down to four, and in that round Cortez Schenck was eliminated with the low game, while Carson Opela's overall total was lowest, eliminating them in third and fourth. That left Stefan Wood and William Yoder standing, and in the title game, Wood came through with a confident performance for the win and his third career JBT title.
Sixteen handicap survivors were whittled down to just five, and in that penultimate round, Luke Gartner's 144 was low game, while Kory Hetmer and Kelsey LaBier were ousted with the lowest two totals, leaving Marguerite Evans and Jacob Marquis to battle for the title.
Evans, visiting from California, has doubles titles but has been searching her whole career for that elusive singles title. A missed spare in the tenth left the result in question, but when Marquis couldn't get a tenth frame double, a relieved Marguerite finally had that first career singles title, and her third overall JBT win.
Vanessa Romero was the day's girls champ, defeating Bree Vargas in a good title game.
