He also rolled a 683 set in another league.
Zeplin was competing in the Sugar & Spice League where he also started on fire with two clean games of 258 and 257 before a split and an miss in the third game left him with a 208 game and 723 series for second high. Zeplin also rolled a nice 652 total in another league.
Andy Hall also broke the 700 mark with a 246 high game contributing towards a 702 set.
Other scores of note for the men were Randy Vivero (687), Jerry Cano (267-685), Tom Crowe (683/652), Harold Bellanger Jr. (677), Mike Wortham (666), Kevin Stacy (257-662), Calvin Bigham (662), Eric Smith (265-661), Don Marques (660), Mike Osterson (650), Mike Unger (649), Shawn Miller (259), David Matthews (258), Justin Smith (257), Billy Hill (248), and Mark Hernandez (248).
Kenny Ballard does not let being blind stop his love for bowling. He has competed for many years on the lanes and last week he bowled a 165 high game and 322 series in the Pinbuster League.
Rebekah Martinez was high for the women with a nice 606 set bowled in Monday Mixed competition. She posted individual games of 198, 186, and 222 for her total.
Erin Faltysek was not far behind with an excellent 245 high game helping towards a 597 series in Sundowner competition.
Team USA members Chris Barnes and Kelly Kulick earned gold medals in the inaugural World Ten Pins Bowling Association World Series Championships, which were held in Limassol, Cyprus.
Kulich went into the final frame needing two strikes and a nine pin count to lock up the win and she came through to defeat Latvia's Diana Zavjalova 228-226.
Barnes defeated fellow American Tommy Jones 212-198 for the men's title after surviving a tough semi-final match (246-244) against Colombia's Andres Gomez.
When ABC and WIBC combined to form the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) it was to facilitate joining other countries in the bowling world for national competition.
With the many countries that can furnish top-notch competition, it was hoped that bowling would become an International Olympic medal sport.
Unfortunately the International Olympic bureaucracy has not taken the sport seriously enough to vote it a medal sport, though millions of people compete world wide in sanctioned play.
