U20 Champions crowned at 2016 Junior Gold Championships

INDIANAPOLIS – Jacqueline Evans of Acton, Massachusetts, and Jeffery Mann of West Lafayette, Indiana, captured the 20-and-under titles at the 2016 Junior Gold Championships presented by Storm, Roto Grip and Master.

The championship rounds, held at Western Bowl, consisted of two games with total pinfall determining the winner, and were broadcast on CBS Sports Network on Tuesday.

The U20 girls’ title match required more than 20 frames to complete as Evans and Haley Cummings of Huber Heights, Ohio, tied after two games before Evans won in a ninth and 10th frame roll-off, 45-39.

Jackie Evans is an alumni of the Turbo Tech Collegiate Expo 2013 who will be junior at Lawrence Tech this fall.

I honestly couldn’t believe it,” said Evans, a 20-year-old who will be a junior at Lawrence Tech this fall. “I had to walk away for a second when I realized the chance was still there. Striking in the 10th was an unreal feeling. I bowl in the anchor spot in college, so I’ve gotten used to the pressure. It was a feeling I wanted to have, and that’s when I get my adrenaline going and make quality shots. This was a great week”.
