MOJAVE INVITATIONAL

Cerell Cardines, Kieran Roth, Ezekiel Trejo, Austin Nash, Hayden Fernandez, Cesar Padilla, Katelyn Abigania

 

        Cerell Cardines and Ezekiel Trejo earned $1,000 scholarships each as champions of the JBT Mojave Conference Invitational tournament, hosted by Suncoast Bowling Center in Las Vegas.

        Bowlers in both divisions bowled qualifying on two very challenging patterns before the top sixteen advances to triple elimination matchplay.  In the scratch division, Zach Greim, on a mission to solidify his TPC berth, was the last undefeated bowler, before hitting a rougher patch and finishing in fifth.  In round eight, Elias O'Hollaren and Josh Molloy bowed out in third and fourth, leaving Hunter Mayes needing to beat Cerell Cardines twice to take the title in a clash of two of our best.

        Cerell stayed in charge to win the first game and the title, and boy how things have turned around for the veteran.  After nine consecutive second place finishes, this is his third consecutive title, second consecutive Invitational, and he becomes the 16th bowler in JBT history to join the extremely elite 20-title club!

        In the handicap division, #6 seed Trejo excelled in matchplay, starting out 5-0 before two quick losses.  He recovered quickly, and gave Kieran Roth his second loss in round eight, earning a bye in the process.  He then watched as Roth eliminated Hayden Fernandez, but Hayden's third place finish was enough to seal Mojave Bowler of the Year!  This set up a single game final, and in that title game, Ezekiel was able to beat Kieran again, claiming his second career JBT title, $1,000 top prize, and jumping him into the Mojave all-star team!

        Cesar Padilla came from behind to beat O'Hollaren for the U17 title, and Katelyn Abigania won Girls Scratch, each picking up a $200 scholarship bonus.  Huge thanks to Becky and the team at Suncoast for another great job hosting a big day.  Over $5,500 was awarded to qualifiers of all ages and skill levels!  Top scorers now advance to the Touring Players Championship to go against the JBT's best for our biggest title.  Want in on all of this?  Just check out our schedule and come on down!
