Champion Jenny Oh & Husband
East Meadow, NY: The LIGBT, sponsored by Storm, ran Sport Shot Series #10 at AMF E. Meadow and crowned another first-time champion. Jenny Oh, Plainview, NY won her first LIGBT title by defeating Eddie Walker, Washington, D.C. 254-229 in the final shootout. Jenny earned $1,000 while Eddie took home $700 for his runner-up position. Finishing in third place was Dexter Wharton, Brooklyn, NY with a 207 worth $500. Rounding out the top 4 was Kevin Myree, Brooklyn, NY with a 191 worth $400.
Jenny’s title run began in the 1pm squad when she qualified with a 686 series. After 2 final rounds Jenny advanced to the shootout where she dominated. Even though she was getting the most handicap she bowled the highest scratch game (175.) That is the formula for a winning.
With Jenny dominating the shootout the other 3 bowlers were shooting for 2nd place by the 5th frame. Amazingly, Eddie came in 2nd even though it took him until the 10th frame to convert his first spare. His triple early in the match helped him finish 2nd. Dexter bowled well but couldn’t string any strikes and finished in third. Kevin started well with 6 marks but he opened 3 out of his last 4 frames to finish 4th.
The LIGBT 2-squad sport shot tournament drew an amazing crowd of 127 entries, paid out $6,410 in prize money, and had 33 bowlers go to the cashing window. The side action awarded an additional $5,030 bringing the total event payout to $11,440.
Scores to cash on the 40 foot “Highway to Hell” pattern were 657 at 1pm and 635 at 3pm. The wildcard winner, which is the highest 6-game series by a non-finalist, was Archie Nabas, Queens Village, NY with a 1,338. High series of the tournament was shot by Eddie Walker with a 736 in the first squad.
