Levittown, NY: Jack Kampf, a 55-year old truck driver from Levittown, NY, won the $1,000 top prize at LIGBT’s house shot tournament hosted by Levittown Lanes. Jack’s home bowling center is Levittown and he took full advantage of the “local knowledge” to capture his 4th LIGBT title in 7 years. In the final shootout Jack defeated 2nd place finisher Julio Arnold, Woodside, NY 256-227. While Julio earned $500 for his runner-up position, finishing in third was Darryl Freeman, Forest Hills, NY with a 220 worth $350. Rounding out the top 4 was Anthony Cotter, Bellmore, NY with a 197 worth $300.
The final shootout started out strong as all 4 bowlers had a double by the third frame. Darryl had the lead in the 5th frame as he was the only bowler to stay clean the first half of the match. Jack’s victory run started in the 6th frame where he struck the next 4 out of 5 frames to lock up the match. Julio could have won the title if he had tripled in the final frame. But a ringing 10 pin cost him the chance at the title.
