Richards dandy on way to high sereies
Herschel (Dandy) Richards was just dandy on his way to the weekly high series honors this week, while competing in the Red River League.
With only one open frame in the three games set, Richards rolled games of 238, 244, and 227 for a 709 total.
It was also dandy that he was on our team and we won.
Mark Svatek posted the second high score with a 248 high game contributing towards a 706 series.
Mike Stacy also enjoyed a good week on the lanes with sets of 262-702, 692, and 669 in three different leagues.
Other nice scores for the men were Scott Snow (695), Jacob Silgero (258-693), Gary Hatter Sr. (264-690), Rick Kalmus (249-689/277-681), Mike Osterson (683), Larry Hall (675), Craig Hoff (255-674), Abraham Flores (269-672/257), Chris Kurtz (670), Kevin Rosales (664), Larry Mikulec (663), Steve Zeplin (659), Robert Gonzales (254-653), Abel Garcia (653), Joey Matson (650), Keyy Schupbach (276), Tony Bennett (267), Victor Thomas (263), Eddie Gonzales (256), John Figueroa (256), and Sterling Kocian (256).
Carri Lee had the high score for the women with a very nice 615 series posted during Sugar & Spice competition. She rolled games of 192, 201, and 222 for total.
Bailey Koebrick edged out Sharon Guinn for the second high series. Koebrick rolled a 609 with a 226 high game and Guinn posted a 234 high game and 608 total.
Judy Reyna also broke the 600 mark with a 232-601.
Other nice scores for the ladies were Morgan Matula (591), Nicole Mergele (589), and Christine Speer (585).
Vera Cruz bowlers for the week were Jacob Silgero 750 (Sundowners) and Janice Bailey 719 (Captain's).
The entry forms for the women's annual city tournament are available at local bowling centers. The entry deadline is Feb. 8, at midnight, and will be scheduled for one weekend only.
This year the tournament will be competed in only one division and the team event will be comprised of 4 members.
The changes have been made due to the lack of entries in recent years.
Parker Bohn III captured his second major PBA title last Sunday by defeating Jason Belmonte 254-227 to win the 2013 PBA World Championship.
Parker had to battle his way from the last qualifying spot to reach the finals as the 5th seed. His victories included wins over Dan MacLelland 226-218, Rhino Page 200-170, and Sean Rash 278-231 before reaching the finals.
Next week ESPN will feature Round 1 of the Japan Cup with a later starting time of 2 p.m. local time.
It is with sorrow that I note of another Victoria Senior bowlers having passed away.
William (Billy) Klacman died last week after a long battle with cancer.
Having known Billy for many years, first as a co-worker at DuPont and then several years after retirement on the bowling lanes, I found him to always have a positive attitude and a smile on his face.
He fought to the end with a tenacity that allowed him to enjoy bowling and his friends as long as he could. Although not a high average bowler, he was competitive enough to be on five VUSBC Open City Tournament winning teams. His last one was during last year's tournament.
My condolence and sympathy go out to his wife Winona, sons Matt and Craig and the rest of the family.
