KEARNY MESA BOWL
champs Elias O'Hollaren & Nathan Ginsburg; Joshua Abigania, Katelyn Abigania, Ethan Ash
Elias O'Hollaren and Nathan Ginsburg opened up the 2019-20 JBT Southern California Conference season with exciting wins at San Diego's Kearny Mesa Bowl.
Cerell Cardines began the stepladder finals with a 248-217 win over Trevor Thompson. O'Hollaren then stopped Cerell 231-208 to reach the title match.
Top seed Josh Abigania was the oldest bowler in the title match at thirteen years old. But it was twelve year old Elias who performed like a vet in the title match, winning 202-168 to become one of the youngest scratch champions in JBT history.
Kaitlynn Yukihiro survived a squeaker over Briana Salazar 179-178 to begin the handicap division stepladder finals. Ginsburg then stopped Yukihiro 237-190 to reach the title game.
Top seed Ethan Ash had been brilliant all day, and put up a very respectable 225 against his friend, but Nathan stayed on a roll, blasting 263 to win the title, the second of his JBT career.
Josh's sister Katelyn Abigania beat Allison Azvedo for the day's Priority Girls scratch win, while O'Hollaren doubled up with a U17 win over Abigania as well.
