Thesier, Guba Lead Advancers At Teen Masters

With 18 games of qualifying completed, the first cut was made Wednesday at the 2019 Teen Masters.

Caroline Thesier of Mooresville, North Carolina, and Andrew Guba of Las Vegas led their respective divisions into the fourth round at Sawgrass Lanes in Tamarac, Florida. The top 25 percent advanced into the next round. 

Thesier led the girls division with 3,543, a 196.83 average, after putting up a huge total on the mixed lane patterns in the third round. She fired 1,258, the highest total of the day in the girls division, to jump from fourth into the lead.

Sierra Calo sits in second place with 3,528, while Jaelle Hamman is third with 3,484. Rounding out the top five are Crystal Elliott in fourth with 3,478 and Brooklyn Boudreau in fifth with 3,457.

On the boys side, Guba is joined in the top five by Nick Larsen (3,837), Bryce Oliver (3,788), Isaac Erickson (3,776) and Julian Michael Salinas (3,664).

After six additional games for the advancers, the cut will be made to the top 18 boys and 18 girls for three six-game rounds of match play, which begins Thursday afternoon. All rounds are being broadcast live on FloBowling.

The Teen Masters only allows bowlers to use a urethane non-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.
