Garden City, NY: The LIGBT, sponsored by Storm, ran Sport Shot Series #8 at AMF Garden City and crowned a brand-new champion. Nolan Herron, a 17-year-old high school junior from Fairfield, CT, won the $1,000 top prize by defeating 2nd place finisher Tyger Folmar, Queens, NY 244-206. Tyger earned $550 for his runner-up position. Finishing in third place was Jack Kampf, Levittown, NY with a 191 worth $350. Rounding out the top 4 was Valerie DeLillo, N. Massapequa, NY with a 189 worth $250.

The Garden City sport shot event was one of the lowest scoring tournaments in LIGBT history. The “Boardwalk” pattern proved frustrating for everyone and bowlers making spares won the biggest share of the prize fund. No one in the final shootout threw a clean game. Nolan, had only 1 open which propelled him to victory. When Nolan struck in the 9th frame, and Tyger opened, it was clear Nolan secured his first LIGBT title.   

The LIGBT 2-squad sport shot tournament drew 89 entries, paid out $4,435 in prize money, and had 23 bowlers go to the cashing window. The side action awarded an additional $4,460 bringing the total event payout to $8,895.  

Scores to cash on the 35 foot “Boardwalk” pattern were 632 at 1pm and 616 at 3pm. The wildcard winner, which is the highest 6-game series by a non-finalist, was Rob Longiaru, Seaford, NY with a 1,246. There was only one 700 series shot for the day and it was by our champion Nolan with a fine 721 series. The winner of the Storm ball raffle was David Cincotta, N. Babylon, NY.

LIGBT’s next tournament is our 9th House Shot Series event at AMF E. Meadow, on Sunday, May 7th (1pm.) To view the results of the AMF Garden City event please visit The LIGBT is sponsored by Storm, Billvee Electric and Randi B. Siegle Attorney at Law.
