MJBT is an Official PBA JUNIOR AFFILIATE Tournament Host for 2023!
The MJBT headed to Super Bowl in Ramsey, MN for our February contest. There were 55 entries (40 boys and 15 girls) that came to compete on the 45 ft, 3 to 1 ratio, and 29.5 mL lane pattern.
On the girls side, CONGRATULATIONS to Taylor Lietha for going wire-to-wire and winning her FIRST MJBT title! Taylor was the top seed entering the stepladder and would be facing the #3 seeded, and last months champion, Alivia Baskin. Taylor had some nerves creep in early in the match with opens in two of her first three frames, while Alivia stayed clean early. However, the momentum changed and Taylor charged back with a 3 bagger in the middle of the match, while Alivia lost her look and struggled to stay clean late, which let Taylor cruise to a 181-149 victory.
For the boys, CONGRATULATIONS to Dakota France for also going wire-to-wire and winning his second MJBT singles title! Dakota was the top seed entering the stepladder and would be facing the #6 seeded Drake Wait, who got red hot in match play and was making an effort to run the ladder. Dakota started the match with the front four, and while Drake kept it close, two bad breaks for splits ultimately cost him the match. Dakota had the match wrapped up before the 10th, so he tried to be “Simo-like” and throw a backup…well, let’s just say it was pretty Anti-Simo-like. The final score was 228-218.
Thank you to Joey Yant and the entire staff at Super Bowl for being great hosts this month. A huge THANK YOU again to all the parents and athletes for continuing to make the MJBT a premier youth scratch event in the Upper Midwest!
