champs Kyle King and Krystal Gray

Kyle King and Krystal Gray "k"aptured JBT titles in exciting Arizona Conference action, hosted by AMF Shea Village.

Matt Herbert returned from a long absence to open up the scratch division stepladder finals with a 212 game that beat Forrest Holland (188) and Caycee Landers (168).   Cameron Smith then stepped in with a big 246 to eliminate BJ Baker (234) and Herbert (188).  In the semifinal match, another Californian, Matt Cormack, rolled 209 to oust Smith (172) and Greg Garbera (187) to advance to the title match.

Top seed Kyle King is simply doing it all on our Tour this season, and nothing changed here, making a great ball change late in the match to capture the 15th title of his JBT career with a 221-202 victory over Cormack.

Alicia Sullivan opened the handicap stepladder finals with a 184, but could only watch as Kayla Goad and Deven Johnston tied at 228, forcing a rolloff which Kayla won 58-40 to advance.   Goad was very goad in the next match, firing 243 to eliminate Joshua Ebert (222) and Nick Ledvina (172).  In the semifinals, former Main Event champ Kyle Karpovich rolled 223 to beat Goad (198) and Savannah Carr (193) to reach the title match.

Top seed Krystal Gray was enjoying the best performance of her JBT career, thanks in part to some great lessons from Gary Hicks in Tucson.  She kept rolling in the title match, beating Karpovich 251-229, for her first career JBT title.

Big thanks to the whole crew at Shea for another great job hosting our Tour.  112 bowlers shared in over $2,600 in scholarships awarded to all ages and averages at the event.  Want in on the fun?  Come on down to the next JBT event, it's as simple as that!
