Jillian Martin and Andrew Guba hold the top spots after two rounds of qualifying at the 2019 Teen Masters after a tough second round on the short oil pattern.
Martin leads the girls division with a 12-game total of 2,337, a 194.75 average, while Guba tops the boys with 2,577, a 214.75 average, at Sawgrass Lanes in Tamarac, Florida.
All players return for the third round of qualifying on Wednesday which will take place on mixed patterns. All rounds of the event are being broadcast live on FloBowling. For archives of past rounds, click here.
The Teen Masters only allows bowlers to use a urethane no-flare bowling ball named the PBA Skills 3.02. The patterns are also much different than those used in today’s bowling with the long pattern (42 feet) and short pattern (32 feet) both having just under seven milliliters of oil. By comparison, PBA patterns have between 25 and 35 mL of oil.
Martin jumped from eighth place after the opening round up to second place after two rounds after putting up the biggest Round 2 total in the girls division with 1,146.
Sierra Calo, the first-round leader, dropped to second with 2,329, while Jaelle Hamman is third with 2,309. Caroline Thesier is fourth with 2,285 and Brooklyn Boudreau is fifth with 2,284.
In the boys division, Guba also led after the first round after shooting 1,323 on the long pattern Monday and totaled 1,254 in the second round on short to stay in the lead.
Bryce Oliver sits in second place with 2,552, while Isaac Erickson is third with 2,505. Nick Larsen (2,499) and Silas Lira (2,454) round out the top five.
After three rounds of qualifying, the top 40 boys and 25 girls will advance to a fourth round of qualifying to determine the top 18 boys and 18 girls who will advance into match play, which begins Thursday afternoon.
