Tanner Triggs had quite a bowling day. He not only won the Don Holtz Realtor and Talbot Excavating Kitsap Scratch Bowlers Association Non-Champions title in the 33rd edition of the Non-Champions/ Champions Tournament but became the King of the Hill to earn his first KSBO title in the event held at All Star Lanes in Silverdale.

Triggs led from start to finish on this day (Feb. 10). He was the leader after the qualifying round of the Non-Champions Tournament, shooting games of 180-213,278, 210 and 189 for a total of 1070.

It was still Triggs in the lead after the semifinals. He rolled games of 234, 227 and 215 to increase his total o 1836.  Then he waited for the four bowlers behind to bowl. In the first match of the TV finals, Casey Jamrog beat Doc Patterson 223-165, but then fell to Tylor Hale 237-223. Kurt Strep then beat Hale 213-194 to advance to the championship match against Triggs. Triggs defeated Strep 209-140.

While the Non-Champions were bowling, the Champions were also bowling.  Curtis Messer Sr. led after the qualifying round. His son, Curtis Messer Jr., gained control after the semifinals by winning all three semifinal games by rolling games of 256, 233, and 227.

In the championship match, Messer Jr. stopped the suddenly hot Tim Clemens, who came from fourth place to face Messer Jr.  Messer Jr. won his third KSBO title by stopping Clemens 255-201.

Triggs then proved to be too much, knocking off Messer Jr. 213-169 to claim the title of King of the Hill.

Next up for KSBO is the Westbay Auto Open and the Tom Myers Sr. Memorial 205 and Under Division at Hi-Joy Bowl on Feb. 24.
