MOJAVE DOUBLES

 

champs and finalists

 

        A dominant finish and a truly wild finish highlighted action at the JBT Mojave Doubles Classic, hosted by Sam's Town Bowling Center in Vegas.

        The scratch division baker-format stepladder finals began with Kelcey Acon-Kawamura and Gianni Silva beating Zach Greim and Elias O'Hollaren 245-200 (the 200 being Dutch, the first baker-format one in JBT we can remember).  Avery Domaguin, like Kelcey one of a crowd of rising female JBT stars, then teamed with Casey Shephard to stop Silva and Aczon-Kawamura 224-161 to advance to the title match.

        Top seeds Cerell Cardines and Solomon Salama had led from the very start, and the teamed with the packed resumes proved why that is so, pouring on the strikes for a 257-188 win over Avery and Casey for the title.   It's the 31st of Solomon's JBT career, and the 17th of Cardines', but amazingly his first since November of 2019- now that that ice is re-broken, look out!

        Gyrus Alo teamed with adult partner Olivia Derrico to win the opening game of the handicap stepladder final 168-135 over Kayden O'Dell and Cuzack Bove.  Kendall Bollea and Lindsay Greim, who have already teamed together to win two previous doubles events, then beat Gyrus and Olivia 183-145, to advance to another title match.

        Top seeds Dart Longa and Hayden King had been wonderful all day en route to the number one spot, and engaged in a tight battle with Lindsay and Kendall in the final.   In the ninth, Kendall chopped a 6-10, and incredibly, in the tenth Greim did exactly the same thing, with that unlikely event giving Longa a shot to double to win and fill 20 to tie.  Dart's perfect first shot left a solid-8, but then just barely missed the spare, handing a relieved Lindsay and Kendall their 5th career JBT titles each. 

        Tyler Castronova fired the event's only 300 game, his career first, and Harper Schmidt claimed the day's Ebonite ball.  Connor Steelmon-Hill nailed the '26' jackpot for a quick $200 bonus.

        Big thanks to Sam's Town for their usual great hosting job, and all the adults and alumni taking the time out of their weekend to bowl with today's JBT kids.  Want in on all the fun for all ages and average?  Just check out our schedule and come on down!
