The MJBT ventured to southeast to Island Xtreme Bowl at Treasure Island Casino in Welch, MN for our January event. 43 boys and 19 girls came out to compete and to test their skills on the Kegel’s Great Wall of China lane pattern.
On the girls side, CONGRATULATIONS to Autumn Forrester for winning HER FIRST MJBT TITLE! That is back-to-back months where we have had a first time titlist on the girl’s side. Autumn qualified in 3rd and our #1 seed, Hailey Triske, who dominated qualifying by averaging 216 for the 9 games and making her first title match appearance. The title match had these two ladies battling nerves more than the lanes. Neither wanted to take control early as both had some opens. Hailey continued to struggle late in the match as Autumn kept it clean and won the match 164 – 148.
For the boys, CONGRATULATIONS to Zach Andresen for also claiming his 1st MJBT title in only his 3rd appearance. The boys title match had Zach, our #2 seed, going up against our high qualifier, Hunter Pomije, who only averaged 233 during qualifying. Zach had the hot hand going in, shooting 248 in the semi-final to get to the title match. Both guys were clean, but Zach only missed striking twice in the match and won easily 269-213.
Thank you to Island Xtreme Bowl, for hosting the January event and to the general manger Patrick Morgan and his staff for always making us feel welcome. A very special 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 all of those that donated door prizes to our youth competitors and our sponsors: MOTIV bowing products for their ongoing support for youth scratch bowling in the Upper Midwest!!
