Minnesota Junior Bowlers Tour

The MJBT kicked off it’s 28th SEASON for the 28th time at Cedarvale Lanes in Eagan, MN. The event drew 45 boys and 18 girls to test their skills on the custom lane pattern created by the best in the business, Craig McDonald. It was 45ft long, with a 4.02:1 ratio, and 27.735mL.

On the girls side, CONGRATULATIONS to Brooke Salzman for picking up win in a good battle. Brooke was the #2 seed after 9 games qualifying and she would be taking on the top seeded, Elizabeth Rittenour, also looking to start her first year in college with a band. Both girls put on a great show of skill, but a nice string in the middle of the match lead Brooke to take the title, 231-214.

For the boys, CONGRATULATIONS to Zach Andresen for winning back-to-back titles. Zach was looking to run the gauntlet of match play by taking down the top seed, Brandon Kreyer. Brandon averaged almost 237 during qualifying and was looking to take that momentum to the winners circle. But, as happens more often than not, Brandon lost his touch and maybe his look and Zach put the peddle to the metal and cruised to a 277-154 victory.

Thank you to MJBT Hall of Famer Brent Prentice and the entire staff at Cendarvale Lanes for hosting the MJBT for the 28th consecutive season AND adding $1,000 to this month’s event. A very special thank you to all the parents that helped out in making sure that our tournament runs as smoothly as possible.
