champs Andy Herrmann & Payton Edwards with U17 champ Jacob Frazier and handicap runner-up Madison Bash; Frazier & girls champ AJ Schock

        Andy Herrmann and Payton Edwards each scored major breakthroughs in capturing JBT titles in exciting action at Shoreline's Spin Alley.

        The tough Rome pattern challenged bowlers in both divisions.  AJ Schock was the leader after seven games in the nervewracking 'super survivor' format, but had the low game in game eight, to bow out along with the low overall total, fellow female talent Kelsey Abrahamsen.  That left Andy Herrmann and Tyler Boe standing, and the final game stayed close throughout.  Needing to double in the tenth to win, Boe's first shot left a 4-pin, and Herrmann finally claimed a long sought after first scratch JBT title, to go along with two handicap division victories.  Boe did have one earlier highlight, getting a most unusual 5-count to win the '21' jackpot and a quick $100 bonus!

        The handicap division was carved down to three bowlers after six rounds, and the ensuing penultimate game was as close as it could be, with Madison Bash's 200 and Payton Edwards' 198 escaping from Natasha Richardson's 194, advancing Madison and Payton to the title game.

        Bash was looking for her first career singles title, while Edwards suffered his fifth runner-up finish without a win just the day before.  He bounced back brilliantly by getting to the title game again, and this time pulled away in the late frames, finally capturing his first JBT title with a 233-188 win over Bash.

        Kelsey and AJ would meet again in the Girls Scratch finals, with Schock coming away with the win, while Kelsey's runner-up finish completed a super strong weekend for her.

        Jacob Frazier won his first U17 event with a win over Jake Mullen in that title match.
