2013 Jr. Gold – Day 1

7/15 – Day 1:

Today proved to be a very challenging day for the players. Some of our U20 boys were on London, their long pattern. It was contested at a split house with wood lanes. The pattern played tighter down lane than it had during the practice block. And also broke down in ways unexpected to the talented field. By Yousef El-Laham started the block with his Marauder and eventually moved to his Strike King toward the end of the block. The mid-lane had burned up halfway through game 3 making it difficult to get the ball right and hold pocket. By the end of the block Yousef had moved to an extreme angle on the left side of the lane in an attempt to get the ball to hold and still make a strong move to the pocket with giving up needed angle. It was an up and down block and a tremendous grind. Yousef ended strong with a 211 to finish with a 907 block which landed him in 377th. Jeff Marcure had a very solid day on this difficult condition and lane surface posting a 954. He finished in 206th overall, the highest ranked U20 boy from our program after day 1. Others competing in the boys’ side of the tournament include:

Jermaine Dumond  906
Ben Burbine             897
Quadaris Rembert  896
Jalen Scott-Jones    880
Doug Moore            798
Alex Burbine            797
Nick Sauve               770

In the U15 boys tournament Brian Bourget is sitting in 10th place with a solid 1013 block. Chris Williams turned in a 761 and hopes to improve his position tomorrow.

 

 

The U20 girls age group also competed on a couple of different shots. Beijing, the short patter, played very difficult as well. The outside line which was there in practice was not as playable during the short block forcing players in a bit making it difficult to control the pocket. By the end of the block those having the most success were throwing strong balls with a lot of surface using the outside line as a hold area.

Nicole Trudell competing on the medium pattern rolled up a score of 985 to secure 24th place and our top honors after day 1. Jadee Scott-Jones put up an solid 940 followed by Curran Desjardin who had a tremendous day with the help of a 232 game pushing her total to 934 and a 75th place spot. Right behind her on the bubble is Gazmine Mason with a 932. Gazmine competed on the medium pattern so it is not possible to compare the scores side by side. Others competing in the girls’ side of the tournament include:

Jess Marcure     860
Katy Barnes       802
Rebekah Varin  785
Tori Porter        779
Sam Gitschier   707

 

Jewel Dumond competing in the U15 girls division recorded an 824 and is sitting in 89th place.

Tomorrow will be another day and a pivotal one at that for all the bowlers. Day 2 often makes or breaks many competitors in this difficult format
