Minnesota Junior Bowlers Tour

THIS SUNDAY’S EVENT AT HAM LAKE LANES HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO MARCH 21ST DUE TO THE GOVERNOR’S UPDATED COVID RESTRICTIONS ANNOUNCED ON NOVEMBER 18TH.

The MJBT headed to Monticello, MN to River City Extreme for 24th Annual Mike Light Jr. MJBT/CBA Baker Doules event that had 24 boys teams and 12 girls teams that came out to compete and to test their skills on the Kegel Tungsten lane pattern.

On the girls side, CONGRATULATIONS to Hana Roers and Nikki Reese on their dominate wire-to-wire victory, as they were the high qualifiers for the stepladder. The stepladder features a two-game total format, and this match was decided after the first game. Hana & Nikki faced off against the #2 seeded Brooke Salzman and Kayla Pashina for the title, but Hana & Nikki took an early lead by getting a 57 pin lead after the first game of the title match, and cruised to a victory (225-201/426 vs 168-159/327).

For the boys, CONGRATULATIONS to Bryce Neumann and Brady Stearns for claiming the first MJBT title for Bryce!! Bryce and Brady were the #3 seeds in the ladder, and held off the #2 seeded Spencer Beecher and Erik Vermilyea in the first match of the ladder (228-162/390 vs 164-191/355). The title match was a little closer against the #1 seeds, Dylan Galle and Jason Craigen. Bryce and Brady had a 30 pin lead after the first game, but a couple of opens early allowed them to coast to the title (210-208/418 vs 180-157/337).

Thank you to Jason Hanson, the CBA Tournament Director, for getting the site and the CBA members to volunteer their time to bowl with the future of this sport. Thanks to River City Extreme for hosting this special event. Also, thank you to ALL OF THE LOCAL STAFFERS and PRO SHOPS for their donations to the ever popular door prize raffle that is held after the stepladder is completed. It is truly amazing the amount of items we are able to get, especially with being in the middle of a pandemic. A very special thank you to all the parents that help out in making sure that our tournament runs as smoothly as possible. s
