Minnesota Junior Bowlers Tour

The MJBT headed to Huikko’s in Buffalo, MN for our May event and our special dual qualifying squads. The event drew 39 boys and 16 girls to test their skills on the 41 foot, 2.33 to 1 ratio, 25.245mL lane pattern. 

On the girls side, CONGRATULATIONS to Elizabeth Rittenour for winning her 2nd MJBT event with a nail biting and exciting finish for this month’s title. Elizabeth was the #2 seed, taking on the #1 seeded Brooke Salzman. The match was close the whole game, with neither competitor ever having a lead by more than 12 pins. In the end, Brooke had a chance in the 10th to shut out Elizabeth, but a bad break of a pocket 7-10 gave Elizabeth an opportunity, needing a mark to claim the title, she threw a great shot and put 10 into the pit, to claim the win 210-204 win.

For the boys, CONGRATULATIONS to Lucas Hersrud on getting back to the winner’s circle at this month’s event. Lucas was the #2 seed for the ladder and would battle against the #1 seed Dawson Peterson in a yet another battle between two of the best youth male bowlers in Minnesota. Again, the match was close for most of the match, with Dawson stepping up in the 9th to take a commanding lead into the final frame, but like the girls match, a terrible break of a pocket 7-10, opened the door for Lucas, and Lucas slammed it shut with strikes in the 9th, 10th, and 11th, to claim the title, 207-185.

Thank you to Chad and Karla Huikko and the entire staff at Huikko’s for hosting this month’s event, AND, donating $1,000 to our prize fund, along with complimentary mini golf. A very special thank you to all the parents that helped out in making sure that our tournament runs as smoothly as possible.
