GOLDEN PIN LANES
champs Nick Devlin & William Robbins with Girls and U17 winners Abby Franklin & Matthew Garrett
Nick Devlin and William Robbins picked up JBT titles in exciting Arizona Conference action at Tucson's historic Golden Pin Lanes.
Justin Lawrence began the handicap division stepladder finals with a 236-205 win over Keith Ylvisaker. Lawrence then turned it up with a 244-186 win over Corbin Hirsch. Robbins then stepped in and stopped Lawrence in an exciting 230-221 semifinal match.
Top seed Freddy Ramirez traveled from California with his friends for the event, and made the most of it by leading for most of the day. However, William, who narrowly lost the week before in Las Vegas, was not going to let it happen again. He came up with a big game in a 252-210 win, good for the second title of his JBT career.
Harley Sweigart began a run up the scratch division stepladder with a 186-154 win over Austin Muldoon. He won the next match by the narrowest of margins, 199-198 over Cortez Schenck. Nick Devlin stopped him in a 231-190 semifinal win to advance to the title match.
Top seed Kyle Duster had taken the lead from Devlin, who had shot 299 in game five, in game seven. Neither bowler could find a good look in the title game, and in the end Devlin escaped with a 181-177 win, good for the 18th title of his impressive JBT career.
Matthew Garrett won his first U17 event with a 197-147 win over Mathew Adragna. Abby Franklin stopped top seed Stefanny Toala 189-186 for the day's Girls Scratch crown.
