The November event was held at Ham Lake Lanes in Ham Lake, MN and brought out quite a few of our “college kids”. This lead to our largest field of the young season, with 32 boys and 24 girls going to battle. This month offered a new test to our athletes as there was a new lane surface installed on the first 8 lanes a little over a month ago. That combined with Kegel’s Alcatraz lane pattern lead some feeling like they were in jail, while others found an escape route!
On the girls side, CONGRATULATIONS to Ashley Lang on a great performance in the stepladder, marching all the way through as the #6 seed and prevailing over the #1 seeded Destiny Truly in the title match, 215 – 206.
For the boys, CONGRATULATIONS to William Jones on a wire-to-wire win, as William was the high qualifier with a 208.7 average for the 9 games of qualifying. The title match was a grind for both bowlers, who struggled to find a consistent reaction, but William held on to beat the #2 seeded Hunter Pomije, 169 – 135.
Thank you to the Ham Lake Lanes for hosting the MJBT this month AND their donation of $300 into our prize fund. 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!!
