YOUTH NEW MEXICO OPEN
Aiden Ruiz-Jimenez, Robin Prioleau, Avery Domaguin, Antonio Ontiveros, Shaiden Raymond; Avery's subdivision wins
Avery Domaguin made both personal and JBT history, while Antonio Ontiveros had the weekend of his career, each winning titles at the JBT Youth New Mexico Open, hosted and sponsored by Tenpins & More @ Rio Rancho.
Domaguin led the event almost wire to wire, starting with the highest 5-game qualifying score over three squads on the demanding YNMO lane pattern, a variation on the always-tough adult NMO condition, at +68. She went 5-1 in matchplay to consolidate the lead and the #1 stepladder spot. The ladder began with Harper Schmidt beating 2021-22 All-Conference Bowler of the Year Hunter Mayes 245-216. Robin Prioleau then stopped Schmidt 182-170 to set up the first all-female scratch title match in a very long time.
Avery had only one open on the tricky pattern in the final, but also could not catch a double, and her tenth frame mark left the door open for Prioleau to double in the tenth to take the match. Robin's first shot crept up high, and that gave Avery the win, her first scratch JBT title, the first female scratch NMO winner, first female scratch winner since Aileen Linares in February, 5th career JBT title overall, and $825 in total scholarships. The reigning U15 Junior Gold champ and recent PBA Jr champ also won both subdivisions, beating Harper for the U17 win, and Priloeau again earlier for the Girls Scratch win- what a couple of months for the San Diego superstar!
Rachel Mayhew opened the handicap division stepladder finals with a big 274-243 win over Brett Wall, with her 192 scratch score the best game of her life! She slowed down in round two, and Shaiden Raymond took advantage with a 207-180 win to advance to his second career YNMO title game.
Shaiden's previous finals appearance ended in a heartbreaker, but this time top seed Antonio Ontiveros continued his spectacular bowling to make it a runaway. Antonio had to be talked into "tagging along" as his sister Iliana earned a spot in the tournament through a qualifier at Tenpins, and he was glad he did, beating Raymond for the title, his first JBT win, and big $800 top scholarship prize.
The $4,818 in scholarships awarded was greatly supplemented by a terrific contribution from host center Tenpins, making this great annual event even more special. Big thanks to them for hosting, and everyone for coming. Want in on all this fun for all skill levels and ages? Just check out our upcoming schedule and come on down!

Date: Saturday and Sunday September 24-25, 2022 (This is ONE tournament that is TWO days long, open to anyone age 21 & under as of 8/1/22. However, if you don't bowl Saturday, there is a 'consolation' event Sunday morning- see below).
Start Time: Saturday qualifying squads at 9 AM, 1 PM, and 5 PM.
Re-entries?: You may re-enter as much as you like, space permitting. First-time bowlers have priority until 15 minutes before start time. If you qualify with one squad's score, you may re-enter to try and improve your total (your re-entry total will not affect that squad's cut score, and we'll take the highest of your totals).
Reservations: Please email email@example.com 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% from each squad advance to the semifinals Sunday at 9 AM. Semifinals are 6 matchplay games, then the top 4 do a stepladder finals. If you miss the cut to Sunday or do not bowl Saturday, there is a consolation event Sunday at 9:30, which is a 5 game qualifier followed by a top 3 stepladder.
Divisions/ Averages: Scratch or handicap. It is the bowlers' choice of division. Also, everyone age 16 or under as of 8/1/22 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. If you don't have 15+ games in any organized competition this season, we need your finishing 21-22 average, and any 2022 summer averages. 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 double Mountain 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 Mountain Conference points, plus anyone who had a top-4 finish in a Mountain Conference event this season, advance to their respective Invitationals.
Entry fee: $60. Scholarship brackets are available for $2 each. Raffle tickets for Ebonite bowling balls, and our PowerBowl and '27' jackpots, are available on-site. Re-entries are $40 per re-entry.
Sponsor Incentive bonuses: 1) IAM Bowling: Bowlers making the final match of an event (scratch or handicap) wearing an IAM patch (good), any IAM shirt (better), or an IAM JBT shirt (best) earn point bonuses towards a $5,000 IAM incentive jackpot.

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 $2,500 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.
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.
If you reserved without picking a squad time(s), we need to know your choice(s)!.
