champs Marco Flores & Ethan Chambers; Trishelle Leal, Solomon Salama, Jimmy Pfaff
Marco Flores and Ethan Chambers outstruck the competition to win JBT titles in exciting So Cal Conference action at Parkway Bowl in El Cajon.
Surprisingly high scores were the order of the day, highlighted by a perfect game from Tim Hill, and not one but TWO perfect games from Ricky Pollom! Unfortunately for Ricky the day's format was 'super survivor', and if you have the low game any round you're out, and that happened in round two for an early exit. Eventually, four bowlers remained, and in that round, Hill want out on low total while previous day's champ Elias O'Hollaren went out on low (not so low) totals.
In the resulting title game, Flores took on Solomon Salama in an all-lefty battle, and poured on the strikes in a 257-225 win, good for his second career JBT title.
Handicap survivors were carved down to three, and in that round Hayden Fernandez bowed out with low game in third place, leaving Chambers and Jimmy Pfaff, who were nearly a combined +1000 for ten rounds, to play for the title. Unsurprisingly, they both shot well over average in the finale, but it was Ethan with the 266-253 win, good for his second career JBT title.
Solomon got some vengeance with a win over Leoj Chin for the U17 crown, while Trishelle Leal won a high scoring Priority Girls Scratch final 259-232 over Katelyn Abigania.
