Minnesota Junior Bowlers Tour

The February event was held at Mermaid Lanes in Mounds View, MN and brought out 55 of the bravest athletes and parents after a snowstorm came through on Saturday. All in all, 36 boys and 19 girls came out to test their skills and knowledge, all while testing their skills on the 2019 Team USA Trials Day 3 Women’s lane pattern.

On the girls side, CONGRATULATIONS to Ashley Thoennes 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 showed how MOTIVated she was needing two strikes and 7 in the 10th frame, and performing in the clutch, to seal this month’s title against our #2 seeded, Hannah Triske, 197 to 195.

For the boys, CONGRATULATIONS to Ryan Kyllonen on dominating in the stepladder to win this month’s MJBT title.  Ryan was the #2 seed and went up against the #1 seeded, Spencer Beecher. The title match was a battle, with Ryan only having one open in the 6th frame, and Spencer just couldn’t keep pace, as Ryan won 267-249.

Thank you to Mermaid Lanes for hosting the MJBT this month and to Greg Holeman 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!!
