Minnesota Junior Bowlers Tour

The January event was held at Island Xtreme Bowl in Welch, MN and brought out the largest field of the season! All in all, 40 boys and 21 girls came out to test their skills and knowledge, all while taking a drive on Kegel’s “Autobahn” lane pattern. The boys had a little more fun during the long 9 game qualifying trip, while the girls seemed to be spinning their wheels.

On the girls side, CONGRATULATIONS to Abigail Jansen on winning her FIRST MJBT TITLE, as well as, a great performance all day long, as she was our high qualifier for the stepladder. She built up an early lead in the title match, and a rough start for the #2 seed, Lynn Piekarski, became too much to overcome,  and lead Abigail to a 178-133 win.

For the boys, CONGRATULATIONS to Tanner Tynda on his first MJBT title.  Just like on the girls side, he lead qualifying to be the #1 seed in the stepladder. The title match was a battle, with Tanner starting out quick, but the #3 seed Michael Pyse, wasn’t going to go out without a fight. However, a couple of bad frames by Michael late in the match, allowed a cool and calm Tanner to take a victory lap in the 10th, with a 213-204 win.

Thank you to Island Xtreme Bowl for hosting the MJBT this month and to David Martinson and his staff for all of their assistance thoughout the day. A very big thank you to all the parents that help out in making sure that our tournament runs as smoothly as possible. A BIG SHOUT OUT to our sponsors: MOTIV bowing products and the Minnesota Bowling Proprietors Association for their ongoing support for youth scratch bowling in the Upper Midwest!!
