Minnesota Junior Bowlers Tour

The MJBT headed to beautiful southeastern Minnesota and Colonial Lanes in Rochester, MN for our second event on the 2021-22 season. Colonial Lanes donated $1,000 to the prize fund, which drew 36 boys and 9 girls that came out to compete on a 39 ft lane pattern with a 2.2 to 1 ratio. The small ratio played really difficult as only two players average above 200 for qualifying.

On the girls side, CONGRATULATIONS to Elizabeth Rittenour for earning her FIRST MJBT title. The title match featured the #1 seed, Brooke Salzman (one of the two players to average above 200 during qualifying), taking on the #2 seed.  Brooke got off to a slow start with two opens and Elizabeth got a few breaks during the match. Those breaks were enough to propel her to a 198-170 victory.

For the boys, CONGRATULATIONS to Dawson Peterson for also earning his FIRST MJBT title!  The title match featured the #1 seed, Trae Henrichsmeyer, who was the other athlete to average over 200 for qualifying and was looking to earn back-to-back titles. Again, a slow start for the tournament leader was too much to over come, especially since Dawson started with spare – 5 bagger. That allowed Dawson to coast to title with a final score of 219-160.

Thank you to Al Houston and the entire staff at Colonial Lanes for hosting this month’s event and the $1,000 donation to our prize fund. A very special thank you to all the parents that help out in making sure that our tournament runs as smoothly as possible.
