Congratulations to Dan Swenson on winning his 4th MAST title at Spartan Bowl! Dan defeated Jonathan Schalow in the final survivor match to earn $431.00 Jonathon received $229.00 for second place.
The tournament drew 47 bowlers and was competed on Spartan’s house condition. The cut to the top 12 survivor final was +148, with the top 4 qualifiers receiving a bye for the first round. Schalow led the 4 game qualifying with 981 and will receive 25 extra bonus points for his efforts.
This was the first MAST tournament that the survivor final format has been used. After each game, the field was cut to the top 50% of qualifiers using the highest score from that game only. This format continued until the winner, Swenson had survived. The format will again be used later this season at Wildcat Lanes.
Spartan bowl offered up a $100 gift card to the first 300 game bowled during the tournament. Unfortunately none were bowled. Brent Richie was closest, with an honor score of 290.
The tournament was sponsored by Spartan Bowl who donated a portion of the lineage back to the prize fund.
