The June Year End event was held at Garden Center Lanes in Alexandria, MN and brought out 45 of the best athletes. All in all, 27 boys and 18 girls came out to test their skills and knowledge while competing on the MSBS Elephant lane pattern.
On the girls side, CONGRATULATIONS to Styve Smedshammer on her FIRST MJBT TITLE!! This is back-to-back years where the girls champion won her first title. Styve was the #4 seed in the stepladder after 8 games of matchplay and overcame an early open against the #3 seed, Hannah Triske, and prevailed 178-170. Styve then faced the #2 seed, Destiny Truly, one of the two powerhouses on the girls side of the MJBT. Styve stayed clean and threw clutch strikes down the stretch to defeat Destiny, 216-181. That setup the title match with the #1 seed, Cassidy Courey, the other powerhouse on the girls side. Cassidy was the only girl to average over 200 during the 10 games of qualifying on Saturday and was looking to state her claim of dominance in the MJBT. However, Cassidy’s look on the championship pair wasn’t as good as on the others, and Styve stayed clean to keep the pressure on Cassidy after a few early opens, and Styve prevailed 171-159.
For the boys, CONGRATULATIONS to Jordan Monnens for leading wire-to-wire and winning the boys year end title. The first match of the stepladder had #3 seed, Dylan Hanson, taking on the #4 seed, Clayton Reid. These two made their championship pair look like a house pattern, with Dylan prevailing 266-231. Dylan would take on the #2 seed, Max Roers. Dylan kept his striking shoes on, while Max struggled to find a consistent reaction, which lead to a 247-190 win for Dylan. That setup the title match with the #1 seed, Jordan Monnens. Dylan’s look went away and Jordan made great shots when he needed to and defeated Dylan, 214-183.
