Bud Sicard, Duke Knudsen, Alaina Degenstein; Piper Chalmers
Bud Sicard completed an historic performance, while Alaina Degenstein made person history with her first win, in exciting JBT Pacific Northwest Conference action at Federal Way's Secoma Lanes.
After five qualifying games, top scorers advanced to elimination matchplay. It was a rare 'chalk' bracket in scratch, with the top 4 seeds advancing to the semifinals (and all 4 being U17 bowlers to boot). In those semis, 12 year-old DoHon Kwon ousted Duke Knudsen, while top seed Bud Sicard stopped Charlie Simperman to set up the finale.
Kwon is going to win a lot of scratch tournaments, but this final, and the weekend, belonged to Sicard. After cruising to a win the day before, he qualified first again here, then rallied against Canadian Adam Jodoin for a perfect 300 in game two of their two-game match to advance. All that was left was to bowl a good game to beat the talented DoHoon to sweep the weekend. Bud was more than up to the task, firing another perfect 300 game (on a tricky Dead Man's Curve pattern), becoming the first Pac NW Conference bowler to bowl two 300s in one day, and to roll a title match 300 (and just the tenth overall to achieve title game perfection). What a day for the now nine-time JBT titlist!
The handicap bracket was far more chaotic (and completely female), as the semifinals featured #13 Brenna Winders upsetting to seed Shelby Unger, while #14 Alaina Degenstein defeated #7 Alena McDugle to set up a title match between two first time finalists. Both girls bowled very well, but in the end Alaina made the spares that made the difference, and she claimed her first career JBT title with the victory.
Bud's sister Mary Sicard led the first three rounds en route to a fifth place finish, but Piper Chalmers turned the tables in the day's Girls Scratch final, avenging yesterday's defeat with a win here, in a matchup we might see a lot of this season. Duke avenged his semifinal loss with a win over Bud for the day's U17 subdivision win.

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.
