Bryce Nakunz, Jai Kankariya, Garrett Purugganan, Nicholas Hockman, Cayden Matherly; Lindsay Greim
Bryce Nakunz and Jai Kankariya captured JBT titles in exciting Southern California Conference action at Surf Bowl in Oceanside.
After five games, qualifiers advanced to survivor rounds, with the low bowler out on each pair game by game. Twelve scratch survivors were carved down to three, and in the resulting penultimate match, Cayden Matherly advanced with a 232, while Bryce Naknunz' 198 topped Prestin Frazee's 177 to complete the title match. In the final, Cayden could not find a good look on the tough pair, while Bryce filled frame after frame, eventually throwing his only double in the tenth for a clean 202-164 win over Cayden for his first scratch and second career JBT title. Matherly does take over the all-conference points lead with the excellent result.
Twenty handicap survivors were whittled to four, and in those semifinal matches, Kankariya got by RJ Escurel, while Garrett Purugganan got by red-hot Gage Baker to set up a title match between two first-timers. Both players struggled a little, but in the end Jai had enough to beat Garrett for the win and very first career JBT title.
Lindsay Greim bet top qualifier Avery Domaguin for the day's Girls Scratch win, and handicap division top qualifier Nicholas Hockman beat Nakunz for his first U17 subdivision win.

Dress code: Anything goes EXCEPT tank tops, 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.

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.
