Week 1 Standings
Week 2 Standings
Lots of movement from Week 1 of the JCJ Playoffs. In Elites, three new bowlers enter the Top 8 while in the Juniors, four new bowlers enter the Top 9? Yes, top 9 because there is a tie for 8th this week.
Dakota Degracia tightened the grip on his lead, shooting a 625 scratch set, and increasing his overall lead on #2 Pamela Faller to 54 pins. Biggest jump came from Andrew Ramirez, who’s 670 scratch series vaulted him from 14th to 5th. Positions 9-15 are all within 30 pins of the 8th playoff spot.
Aaron Calica continues to pace the Juniors as he holds a 52 pin lead over No. 2 Marco Vartanian who leaped from 7 this week. Biggest jumps came from outside the cut line as Kelsey Griffin moved from T18 to 12th & Janice Tuch moved from 10th to 4th. It’s going to be a tight race in the Juniors as positions 2 thru 12 are separated by only 48 pins.
Week 3 Standings
To be determined…

The final round of qualifying for the JCJ Playoffs saw some shifting in the Elites and one new face in the Juniors garner a spot to become the first JCJ Playoff champ.
