VIVIANY TAPIA IS LIGBT’S NEWEST CHAMPION!

Posted On: September 25, 2017

Astoria, NY:  Viviany Tapia, a 37 year old security officer from Brooklyn, NY, won his first LIGBT title by defeating senior bowler Fletcher Bacote, Whitestone, NY 235-223 at Astoria Bowl. Viviany, who was bowling in his first LIGBT event, earned $1,000 for his victory while Fletcher earned $500. Rounding out the top 4 was third place finisher Maniram Basdeo, Bronx, NY with a 214 worth $300 and fourth went to Yon Gyo Phark, Flushing, NY with a 182 worth $250.

Viviany bowled like a champion throughout the shootout as he was the only bowler without an open. Fletchter got off to a horrible start with 3 opens but finished strong to capture second. Yon Gyo started strong but too many opens late hurt his chances. Maniram had an early double but 3 late opens destroyed his title hopes. Viviany secured his first title with a triple in the last 2 frames.

The Astoria Bowl house shot tournament drew a nice crowd of 79 entries, advanced 15 bowlers to the finals and paid out $3,900. The modified house shot pattern created much lower cut scores than past house shot events; 706 & 708. High series of the tournament was shot by Yon Gyo with a 769 in the 3:30pm squad. The wildcard winner was Ron Hatchett, New York, NY with a 1362 six game series. Michele LaSala, Whitestone, NY was added to the finals as high women with a 681 series in the 1pm squad.

LIGBT’s next tournament is a special 2-day sport shot event at Strike 10 Deer Park October 6 & 8.

Posted On: September 18, 2017

Garden City, NY:  Less than a year ago Lisa LaGuarino was having surgery on her shoulder. Today she is holding her second LIGBT trophy by winning LIGBT’s sport shot event at AMF Garden City. Lisa, who is a medical billing supervisor from N. Bellmore, NY, won the $1,000 top prize with a 230 to defeat second place finisher Ferrill McNeill, Bronx, NY who shot a 201 and earned $500. Rounding out the top 4 was third place finisher Jimmy Walsh, Glen Cove, NY with a 186 worth $300 and fourth went to Lloyd Gregory, Jamaica, NY with 178 worth $250.

The final shootout was a low scoring event as there were many opens throughout the 10 frames. Lisa stayed clean for the first 6 frames which gave her a slight lead. But when she doubled in the last 2 frames she secured her second LIGBT title. Ferrill stayed close but couldn’t figure out the right lane. When he opened in the 9th frame his title hopes were dashed and he settled for second place. Jimmy stayed close early but had too many late opens to finish third. Lloyd started with 4 opens and could never recover and had to settle for fourth place.

The AMF Garden City event drew a nice fall crowd of 101 entries (up 10% from last year), advanced 17 bowlers to the finals and paid out $4,460. The cut score in both squads was 705 on the “Autobahn” pattern. High series of the tournament was shot by our champion Lisa with a 787 in the second squad. The wildcard winner was Tony Jimenez, Massapequa Park, NY with a 1385 series. No one hit the no-tap jackpot and it is now worth $586.
