champs Shane Peck & Lisa Marine

Shane Peck won his first scratch title in dominant fashion, while Lisa Marine topped a high-scoring handicap field, in exciting JBT Southern California Conference action at Vista Entertainment Center, sponsored by Convoy Big Screen.

Mathew Jones highlighted qualifying with his 2nd career JBT 300 game, but just missed the finals in sixth place.  Forrest Holland opened the stepladder with a 211-195 win over Kyle King, who moved up to second in So Cal points.  Jeff Spiesman then came on and ran the front eight strikes for a 279-150 win over Holland.  It was all Spiesman in the semis as well, defeating Cameron Smith 245-160 to reach the title match.

Peck, a 3-time handicap winner, and Spiesman, with 5 JBT runner-up finishes to his credit, were both looking to break through for a scratch division win.  Shane left no doubt as to the result by thrilling the crowd with the first ten strikes, good for a 288-179 victory and his fourth career JBT title.  Combined with throwing an Ebonite ball, wearing Etonic shoes, and having a big day in brackets, Peck cashed in for a whopping $529 in scholarships on the day!

The handicap finals opened with Karlie Loop gutting out a 213 to beat Anthony Stevenson (202) and Shayne Huntley (192).  Loop's 217 was big enough to win round two over Tyler Boscarino (198) and Tabetha Reynolds (190).  Marine then escaped a tight semifinal with a 208 to edge Loop (205) and Ricky Clabaugh (181) to advance to her first title match.

Top qualifier Kaitlin Mayall brought all the experience to the title match, with 4 previous JBT wins, and a get-out-your-frustrations +339 8-game qualifying score on a day filled with gaudy numbers by the whole field.  However, it was Marine who stayed in control the entire title match, and her 221-193 win gave her her first career victory.

82 bowlers competed in the event, and we hope everyone who attended had a great time, and will spread the word about the great benefits of bowling JBT.   Everyone who finished in the top 5 qualifies for the 2007 JBT So Cal Invitational Tournament, the regular season's year end event, featuring a guaranteed minimum $1,000 first place scholarship in each division.  Top season-long point scorers also qualify for the 2007 JBT Touring Players' Championship, featuring a guaranteed minimum $2,000 first place scholarship per division! 

Big thanks to Priscilla Rojo and everyone at Vista for a terrific job hosting our event for the first time.  Over $1,900 in scholarships were awarded.  Want in on the fun?  Come on out to the next JBT event, it's as simple as that!
