Mike Ritti wins BBT 2008 Thanksgiving Classic

BBT Thanksgiving Classic Champion Mike Ritti with Runner-Up Sarah Levin
and 3rd place finisher Mike Delmonico

He has been quiet all year but we can't say that anymore as Mike Ritti shot telephone numbers Wednesday to win the BBT Thanksgiving Classic defeating newcomer Sarah Levin 280/262 with handicap. It was a great match with Mike starting with the first 9 strikes but Sarah, after a rough start, strung a 5 bagger from the 4th to the 8th, and left a 7 pin in the 9th, to deny a chance at the victory.

Mike left a washout in the 10th to deny his chance at BBT imortality. The shot was a true Monkey Spanker.

Here is how it all played out:

Andy Loose, direct off of his cashing the the PBA CLR Carmen Salvino Classic led qualifying with a 702 scratch, Mike Ritti shot 675, Sarah, after a rough start finished with 223, Dan, last weeks champion was 4th, there was a three way tie 5th with Mikie D, Brian and Newcomer Steve all tied for 5th and Reinfart snuck in 8th with a 6 pin win over Gimenna.
