STRIKE ZONE at Sunset Station
champs and finalists
A pair of bowlers outstruck the competition to win their first career JBT titles, in exciting Mojave Conference action at Sunset Station's Strike Zone.
Scores were very high for the second consecutive day, and while spares are always key, players did have to string a few to keep pace with the field. After five games, qualifiers moved on to 'pick your poison' matchplay, where higher seeded bowlers choose who they wish to face. With four bowlers remaining, single game semifinal matches saw JAson Bardol II beat Cesar Padilla 236-212, and Madison Holman sneak by Seth Stovall, who earlier fired a 300 game (the second year in a row he's done that at Strike Zone) 216-212, to set up the final.
Madison has been red-hot lately and looked to cap off the hot streak with a title, but Jason was closing his matches out very strongly all day, and did so again, finishing with a cluster of strikes that led to a 226-213 win and a long awaited first career JBT title.
In the handicap division, Dylan Leong beat Ethan Chambers in one semifinal 246-230, while in the other, a pocket 7-10 in Hayden Fernandez' tenth frame proved pivotal in Taylor Jeneary's 216-196 win, advancing her to the title game. The championship game was very well bowled by both first time finalists, and Taylor's strong finish forced Leong to strike on his first shot in the tenth to win. Dylan came up with a perfect strike, doubling up on the next one for an impressive 250-234 win and first career JBT title.
It wasn't anywhere near the first subdivision title for both winners, as Padilla beat Stovall for U17, while Holman claimed Girls Scratch. Jamison Kaboli picked up a quick $100 by nailing the '26' jackpot, with a very impressive 23-1-1-1 finish- Kyle Rendon would be proud!
Huge thanks to GM Jerry Francomano and his team for their usual great hosting job, we'll see them again in just over four months for TPC week to wrap up an amazing season 26. Still plenty of time to get on on the fun between now and then- spread the word and see you soon!

Start Time: Sunday qualifying squad at 10 AM, one squad only. DON'T FORGET THE DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME CHANGE!
Re-entries?: There's only one qualifying squad, so there are no re-entries this event..
Reservations: Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot. You can prepay (not required) at the 'Prepaying' section of this website. Reservations (paid or unpaid) must check in no later than 15 minutes before start time. At that time, all bowlers will be taken on a first come, first serve basis until the field is full.
Format: Qualifying round is 5 games. The top 40% advance to 'pick your poison' matchplay.
Divisions/ Averages: Scratch or handicap. It is the bowlers' choice of division. Also, everyone age 16 or under as of 8/1/21 is automatically entered in the U-17 side event. Also, every female is automatically entered in the Girls Scratch side event. If this is your first JBT event this season, we will be asking for average info. In most cases, your highest average from any current form of organized competition of at least 15 games is what we need. If you bowl in multiple leagues / clubs, bring everything and we'll sort it out for you. After your first JBT event, your average is re-rated before every JBT event according to JBT rules. Please see JBT Rule 13 for complete details.
Points: This event counts for Mojave and All-Conference points. Points qualify you for the big money season-ending Invitationals and Touring Players Championship, so get all you can. Visit the 'statistics' section of the website to check on your points. As the end of the season, the top 32 in Mojave points, plus anyone who had a top-4 finish in a Mojave event this season, advance to their respective Invitationals.
Entry fee: $50 handicap; $60 scratch. Scholarship brackets are available for $2 each. Raffle tickets for Ebonite bowling balls, and our PowerBowl and '26' jackpots, are available on-site.
Covid details: As of late January, Strike Zone is limited on moving lanes and requires masks by all at all times. Stay tuned for any changes to these protocols before the event date. JBT events follow- at least- all local Covid safety protocols, which you must be prepared for. Please stay posted so you're not surprised about anything required of you.
Scholarships: 1:6 in each division earn scholarships, scratch and handicap. Minimum prizes in scratch are $300, $150, $100, $60. In handicap, $250, $125, $75, $50. Bowlers must finish in the top 4 once this season to qualify for that conference's Invitational, which features $1,000 for first place. Bowlers who finish in the top 20 in a conference's points race, or the top 100 in all-conference points, qualify for the Touring Players Championship, featuring $2,000 for first.
Lane conditions: conditions vary from event to event, and are not posted prior to the event (unless otherwise announced). Some events do not post the pattern until after qualifying. Be ready for anything- it makes you a better bowler! Check out previous patterns and corresponding cut scores at the 'lane conditions' section of this website.
Dress code: Anything goes EXCEPT tank tops, hats, gym shorts, clothing promoting alcohol, drugs, or firearms, or excessively ripped or short clothing, subject solely to the director's discretion. However, bowlers wearing slacks or dress shorts/skirts, and a 'name shirt' or PBA-style 'dye-sub' shirt, or college or high school team shirt, earn an extra 10 points on their season-long points total. If you're not sure about dress code, check with us. If you're new to us, the vast majority of the bowlers do dress in the 'bonus' dress code, and those points become very important, so plan accordingly.
PLEASE do not forget to contact us if you need to cancel or adjust your reservation. This list may not be updated after the Friday of the event as we travel, etc. However, walk-ins / late entries are still gladly accepted as space permits. There is generally plenty of room for walk-ins / late entries, and we'll post here clearly if an event is nearing sellout or sold out.
