SO YOUNG CHIN GETS HER FIRST TITLE AT JIB LANES

Posted On: April 27, 2015

Fresh Meadows, NY:  So Young Chin, a 38 year old right hander from Whitestone, NY, won her first LIGBT title with an impressive victory at JIB Lanes. So Young earned the $1,000 top prize by shooting a 248 handicap game which was 22 pins more than second place finishers Tiffany Ocasio, Oceanside, NY and Andrew Mienkiewicz, Massapequa, NY both rolling a 226 and earning $400 each. Finishing in 4th place was Eddie Cintron, Laurelton, NY, with a 213 worth $250 and fifth went to Lois Bramlette, Laurelton, NY, with a 209 worth $200. All 5 shootout finalists were looking for their first LIGBT title.

The 5-person shootout was an exciting match. The lead changed in almost every frame as all of the competitors had at least one open. Ed took the early lead with a double, So Young doubled in the middle of the game, and Tiffany tripled at the end to force So Young to mark in the final frame. In championship fashion So Young tripled in the tenth to secure her first title.

The JIB tournament drew a wonderful city crowd of 103 entries, advanced 18 bowlers to the finals, and paid out $3,330. The USBC Open Championship pattern (38 feet) was used resulting in moderate scoring; the cut was 699 in the 1pm squad and 716 in the 3pm squad. High series of the tournament was shot by Tiffany Ocasio, Oceanside, NY with an 813 in the 3pm squad.

LIGBT’s next tournament is a special “house shot” event at South Levittown Lanes on May 3rd. Top prizes are guaranteed to pay $1,000 & $500. One in 6 will cash for a minimum of $60. All bonus pins and averages will be frozen at the Levittown tournament. Preregistered cash entry fees are only $60 for your first entry and $50 for a re-entry.
