champs Solomon Salama & Cyruss Tehrani; Carlos Perez, Marco Flores, Zian Sasaki, Jacey Opiana
Everyone was visited by the Easter Bunny, but a JBT title is the ultimate easter egg, and Solomon Salama and Cyruss Tehrani earned that prize with exciting wins in JBT So Cal Conference action at Parkway Bowl.
Scores were high in both divisions, and the scratch division semifinals were commensurate with that, as Carlos Perez beat Miguel Meraz 247-225 in one semi, while Solomon Salama outstruck Cerell Cardines 279-257 in a brilliant match, to set up the finale.
In that final game, Salama was the bowler with the experience, and he used it to his advantage against first-time finalist Perez. He won the match 216-176, earning the 8th title of his still very young JBT career.
In the handicap division, Zian Sasaki escaped from Braeden Phillips 218-211 in one semifinal, while previous day's champ Cyruss Tehrani kept on rolling with a 224-196 win over Connor Steelmon-Hill, to set up the title game.
Tehrani's path to the finals was much tougher than yesterday, with a slow start and a lower handicap, but he just kept getting better as the day went on. He saved his best for last, beating Sasaki 279-224 in the championship game for his second consecutive victory. Zian, for his part, had more fun than any final game non-winner in recent history, watch the video on or YouTube to see!
Jacey Opiana won her first Priority Girls Scratch event, while Marco Flores took down Miguel Meraz to win the U17 subdivision.
