champs Zack Long & Cyruss Tehrani; Katelyn Abigania, Maikayla Villa, Kara Templin; Israel Ramirez
A veteran and a rookie both came up with convincing wins in exciting JBT Southern California Conference action at San Diego state University's beautiful Aztec Lanes.
Zack Long climbed the 4-bowler stepladder finals for his 5th career JBT title. He began wit a 207-170 win over Ryan Lee, then followed with a defeat of Matt Chesnut to move on to the title match.
Top seed Kyle Gilbert had been fantastic all day, but Long found a terrific look in the stepladder, and ran off the front six in the title game. He slowed down in the second half but had the margin he needed for a 218-203 win and the championship.
Kara Templin began the handicap division stepladder with a win over Joshua Abigania. Cyruss Tehrani, who ironically takes lessons from Kara, then stepped in, and the student outlasted the teacher in a great game from both 274-159.
Maikaila Villa had the best performance of her JBT career, dominating the large field. However, Tehrani was on a tear that was not going to stop, and he was able to cruise to victory in the final game for his first JBT title.
Joshua's sister Katelyn Abigania also impressed, averaging over 200 in qualifying to be reach both the U17 and the Priority Girls scratch title games. She went 1-1 in those finales, beating Renee Gentry 167-147, but falling to Israel Ramirez, the 'Prince of Aztec' (both his career wins have come here) 206-130.
