Minnesota Junior Bowlers Tour

Our 2018-19 season kick-off event held at Cedarvale Lanes in Eagan, MN showcased our great athletes in the Upper Midwest  and continued the trend of demanding lane conditions (kudos to Craig McDonald from Cedarvale for creating this month’s pattern). A BIG THANK YOU to Brent Prentice and his staff for providing another outstanding venue for athletes to compete at and for donating the lineage portion of the entry fees back into the prize fund.

On the girls side, CONGRATULATIONS to Hana Roers for going wire-to-wire and winning her 4th MJBT title.  The title match was a battle between “David and Goliath” as the #1 seeded Hana Roers prevailed over the #6 seed Brooke Salzman (who was making her first appearance in the step ladder finals) by a final score of 178 to 119. Brooke marched through the ladder, which included a sister vs. sister match, as Brooke came out ahead of her older sibling, Ashley Salzman, in the 2nd step ladder match.

For the boys, CONGRATULATIONS to Jordan Monnens for winning his 1st MJBT title of his career! Again it was a battle of the #1 and #6 seeds, as Jordan faced his “bestie” Ryan Kyllonen. While the rumor of the two trying to negotiate a tie before the match started may or may not be true, Jordan wasn’t going to let his time to bask in the spotlight slip through his “two-hands” this time, and won convincingly 202-147.

Thank you to Cedarvale Lanes, Brent Prentice, Craig McDonald and the entire staff for hosting the MJBT this month. 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!!
