champs Cortez Schenck & Caleb Rothstein; runner-up Erik Hagen
Cortez Schenck and Caleb Rothstein came up with big wins in exciting JBT Southern California Conference action at BRC Premier Lanes in Chula Vista.
Ryan Lee opened the day with 298 (with a pocket 7-10!) and cruised to the scratch division top seed. He defeated previous day's champ Anthony Cando 260-221 in his semifinal match. On the other side of the bracket, Cortez Schenck was keeping up with Lee's striking pace, beating Sergio Torres 266-176 to move on to the title match. Schenck finds himself in the unfamiliar position of being #2 on the all-conference points list, and he made a big dent in that deficit over the weekend, finishing second the day before and finishing off Lee with a blistering 278-200 final score for the 88th title of his JBT career.
Scores were high in the handicap division as well, but none higher than Cameron Criss, who thrilled the crowd in matchplay with his first career 300 game. He fell in the quarterfinals though to #4 Erik Hagen, and Hagen kept the momentum going with a win over Simon Ortega to reach the title match. Rothstein emerged from the other side of the bracket with wins over Cameron's brother Brandon, Justin Phillips, and Patrick Sablan. Bowling confidently in his home center, Rothstein beat Hagen 250-188 in the finale to earn his second career JBT title.
Kaylee AmKhong defeated Michaela Buhain for the day's Girls Scratch side event win, while Solomon Slama won yet another U17 event with a win over Jose Luis Morales.
