champs Kevin Banaag and Trevyr Geronimo with U17 and Girls winners Solomon Salama & Kaylee Am-Khong
Two first time winners highlighted terrific JBT Southern California Conference action at Winnetka Bowl.
In the day's pick your survivor format, higher seeds got to choose who they played. In the scratch semis, Kevin Banaag stopped Kennison Andrews 213-179, while Dustin Yauney rolled by Anthony Cando 211-199, setting up a title match between two bowlers looking for their first scratch title. Both finalists performed well, but it was Banaag that came up with the strings, beating Yauney 258-201 for his first career JBT title.
Eighteen handicap semifinalists were whittled down to four, and in those semifinal matches Trevyr Geronimo got by Lindsay Greim 199-192, and in a matchup between red-hot bowlers, Avery Domaguin beat Cameron Criss 204-169. Domaguin has been on a Tour-wide roll since the new year, but has had a few tough losses that have prevented the titles from piling up. It was the same story again, as Geronimo came up with the 225-202 win in the title match for his first career JBT victory.
Side events, conversely, were captured by no strangers to winning, as Solomon Salama won teh U17 event, and Kaylee Am-Khong beat Renee Gentry for the Girls Scratch win.
Big thanks as always goes to Winnetka for hosting, and MSC, Priority Girl, and Ebonite for super contributions to the day's prize funds. Want in on all this? Just come on out to the next JBT event!
