Sean Black takes second at JTBA

Sean Black, former Port Clinton Redskin Bowler and current Davenport University Bowler, led the qualifying at the Junior Tournament Bowlers Association (JTBA) at Miracle Lanes in Toledo Sunday, August 10.

He was fifth after the first 5 games rolling 211-178-209-269-190 and followed in the 3 game semifinals with 278-231-205 to become top qualifier. The JTBA used the 36’ Los Angeles Sport Lane Condition. He lost the final stepladder game to Urbana University’s Kyle Cook 259-190.

Sean earned $338 in scholarships and a paid entry into next summer’s USBC Junior Gold Tournament in Chicago.

“Today was a very strong outing and I am very pleased with this performance. I can’t be upset at all with losing in the Finals because it’s very difficult to beat a 259 on these type of Lane conditions,” Black said of the tournament. “This gives me lots of confidence after a rough tournament last weekend in Michigan so to come out and be able to execute good shots today was good as I continue to develop my bowling game.”
