Minnesota Junior Bowlers Tour

The MJBT headed to Mermaid Entertainment Center for our November event. We had 63 entries (45 boys & 18 girls) test their skills on the 45 ft, 27 mL, and 2.9 to 1 lane pattern. 

On the girls side, CONGRATULATIONS to  Brooke Salzman for taking home the November title. Brooke was our top seed and would be taking on the #2 seeded, Kalli Triske. Kalli and Brooke battled the entire match, and Kalli struggled to find a way to kick the 10 out. It was closer than the score makes it out to be as Kalli made some good shots down the stretch, but Brooke was able to strike on pocket hits, and took the 213-190 win.

For the boys, CONGRATULATIONS to Zach Andresen for claiming this month’s title. Zach was taking on the #4 seed, Wyatt Honecker, in the title match. This was Wyatt’s first time making the modified stepladder, and looked ready to take down the “All-Mighty” Andresen after marching through the ladder with games of 225-266-246. In the end, Zach punched out in the 10th to force Wyatt to go strike-8 spare in the 10th for the win. Wyatt got the strike, but left a bucket in the 11th, which gave Zach the 214-213 victory.

Thank you to Tony Pietsch and the staff at Mermaid Entertainment Center for hosting this month’s MJBT event. A very special thank you to all the parents that helped out in making sure that our tournament runs as smoothly as possible.
