Miguel Espinoza, Cameron Sager, Tyler Castronova, Conner Pendergrass, Danielle Fincham, Amarr Bryant, Cesar Padilla
Two bowlers tasted JBT victory for the first time, in very exciting JBT dual Arizona-Mojave Conference action at Cerbat Lanes in Kingman.
After five games, top bowlers moved on to a matchplay bracket. #2 seed Amarr Bryant reached his first title match with a semifinal win over Tyler Castronova, while top seed Cesar Padilla had to go overtime, tying Ben Laffoon at 224, then escaping 9-8 in the rolloff to set up a 1 vs. 2 final. The title game was low scoring but a thriller between the two high-power bowlers. When Cesar didn't get the first of two strikes he needed in the tenth, the rapidly improving Bryant claimed his first career JBT title.
In the handicap divisional Conner Pendergrass defended his top seed with a semifinal win over Cameron Sager, while Miguel Espinza won a back and forth thriller over Sterling Smith 247-239 to set up the title game. Both bowlers bowled well in the first title match, but in the end it was Pendergrass that came through with the win to earn his first career JBT title.
Castronova got revenge with a U17 win over Daryus Alo, while Danielle Fincham beat Jadeyn Mabry for the Girls Scratch subdivision win. Huge thanks as always to the great team at Cerbat for their usual top notch hosting job. That makes 16 of 16 different finalists on the weekend- wow! Get your piece of the parity by checking out the schedule and coming on down to the next JBT event!

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.
This reservation is an expectation that you will be bowling. PLEASE do not forget to contact us if you need to cancel or adjust your reservation. Repeated 'no-shows' may result in you not being able to reserve a spot. 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.
