23rd Annual St. Paul Open Team Challenge

Submitted by: Wells Wescott and David Hoglund – St. Paul Team Challenge Chairpersons

On a snowy December day in Eagan, Minnesota, it was all Locker Guy’s as they were victorious and won the 23rd annual St. Paul Open Team Challenge at Cedarvale Lanes on Sunday December 4th, 2016.

The Team Challenge is an all Baker style format of bowling where the first bowler bowls the 1st and 6th frames, the second bowler the 2nd and 7th frames and so forth.  Again this year we had 32 teams consisting of 5 bowlers each and well over a 1,000 bowling balls.  The tournament paid the top twelve teams. The top prize of $1,000 for first place was not the only thing the teams were shooting for as we ran brackets during the qualifying rounds.  In addition there was a $150 bonus for the first team to shot a 300 score. 

The Qualifying round of the tournament consists of 12 games with the top 8 teams moving on to Match Play competition.  The top 3 teams after Match Play then move on to the Step Ladder finals. 

During the Qualifying competition of the tournament, The Locker Guy II team, captained by Tom Korth led the field with an average of 223.8.  The lowest average to qualify for the eighth position was 206.1 and an average of 202.1 was required to cash.  The eight teams moving on to Match play competition were;

            The Locker Guy  “II”                       Visionary     2

            Team Columbia                                Farmington Lanes On Track  “I”

            Visionary   1                                      The Locker Guy   “I”

            Brunswick DV8  “Blue”                     Team Hammer

During the Match Play Competition, The Locker Guy “II” team averaged 210.6 to achieve the 1st place ranking followed by Team Columbia with an average of 204.7 and The Locker Guy “I” team with an average of 196.1.  Match play competition consists of 7, two game matches and an 8th, position round match. Winners of each game in Match Play receive 15 bonus points and the team with the highest total during the match receives another 20 points.

In the stepladder semi-finals, The Locker Guy “I” team bowled games of 239 and 249 for a total of 488 to defeat Team Columbia (192, 209 total 401) and a chance to bowl The Locker Guy “II” for the championship.  In the finals, Locker Guy “I” bowled games of 237 and 205 for a total of 442 while Locker Guy “II” bowled games of 214 and 226 for a total of 440 and squeak out a 2 pin victory and with the 2016 St. Paul Open Team Challenge.

At this time we would like to congratulate the team members of The Locker Guy “I” team; Tom Korth, Dan Langer, Sam Sylvester, Matt Meyer, and David Langer.  Thank you, to all of the bowlers that participated.  Additionally, we would also like to thank; Cedarvale Lanes, Mike’s Pro Shop, the St. Paul USBC Association, and the Bowling Proprietors Association for their financial assistance.

The bonus of $150.00 for the Baker style 300 game was awarded to Team Columbia for their 300 game in the eleventh game of qualifying.

The 24th Annual St. Paul Open Team Challenge is planned for December 3rd, 2017 at a Bowling Center TBA and will be open to the first 32 paid entries.  Paid entries will be accepted starting in September and typically close by the first week in November.
