champs Hunter Mayes & Mackenzie Hammer; Brock Bivins, Matthew Garrett, Madison Holman, Justin Worthington
Hunter Mayes and Mackenzie Hammer captured JBT titles in terrific action at 7000 feet, at Flagstaff's Starlite Lanes.
Brock Bivins busted out of a recent slump with a 265-175 win over Kyle Rendon to begin the scratch division stepladder finals. Brock had the first six in the next match, but Hunter Mayes stayed tough and strung the back seven for a 258-234 win to move to the title match.
Top seed Matthew Garrett already had a dream day, firing 300 during qualifying, and leading most of the day. This time Mayes ran the front six, and it looked like Garrett might turn the tables, striking out late for 247. However, needing a mark, Hunter crushed another rack, eventually striking out himself for a 264-247 final, good for his third career JBT title.
Madison Holman had a great day as well, appearing in both side event finals and going 1-for-2, losing to Mayes in the U17 final, and beating Rachael Berg for the Priority Girls Scratch win.
Big thanks to the team at Starlite, Ebonite and all our other sponsors, and everyone who attended the sold-out event. Want in on all the fun? Just come on out to the next event!
