Season 8 Episode 1

Jan 16, 2024

An all wood center is where we started Season 8 of the Bracket Challenge. Rocky Mount Bowling Center did not disappoint as the pattern held up and played pretty true all weekend.

It was a sweep by Mr. Keith Davis, as he started his weekend with back to back no tap 300 games, although majority were 9 counts…but we wont mention that out loud. He really never let off the gas as he finished with scores of 238-278-274 for a 1390 5 game block. We had 5 youth come try us out, so we were able to pay the high qualifying youth (Congratulations Mr Cole Coffey). we did pay the top 8 with Nick Burchett getting the free entry into Sunday’s scratch event.

On Sunday, the scores were a lot higher than anticipated and certainly high for a Bracket Challenge event. The cut (1oth place) was -1 and it belonged to Mr. Steve Hollandsworth. Our qualifying leader was Chris Miller at 1117 (194-225-222-221-255).

Once we cut to the top 10, Chris Miller and Keith Davis received a 2 round bye, while everyone else kept going. Our final four were Chris Miller vs Bradley Richardson and Matthew Woodall vs. Keith Davis. Richardson and Davis got through to the finals were Davis earned his first career Bracket Challenge title and our first H5G jersey.

Our upcoming Carolinas schedule:
February 10/11 at AMF Columbia in Columbia, SC
March 2/3 at Paradise Lanes in Spartanburg, SC
March 22-24 is our Bracket Challenge Open at Crest Lanes in Maryville, TN

Thank you for choosing us and we look forward to a very successful 2024 season.
