BOWLING: Three-time city champ Flores honored
May 8, 2013 at 12:08 a.m.
Senior bowler David S. Flores enjoys the game of bowling.
Even after being out of the game for periods of time after having both knees replaced, he is still competitive, as witnessed by his scores this week.
Flores hammered the pins during Sugar & Spice competition to earn the weekly honors with a tremendous 740 series.
He had only one open frame with a split in the third game to record games of 268, 211 and 261 for his total.
Flores also recorded a 270-high game Monday night in another league.
The three-time former VUSBC City Champion is scheduled to compete in the USBC Open in Reno the first week in June. It would be great to see him excel - especially since he is on my team.
Rick Bassano also broke the 700 mark with a great effort during Monday Mixed League play. He posted games of 239, 225 and 257 for an excellent 721 set.
Other scores of note for the men were Gary Hatter Jr. (258-687), Abel Garcia (253-685/264), T.J. Mooney (681/258), Don Marques (667), Todd Pfuhl (258-658), Chris Kurtz (658), Jerry Cano (257-648), Jeff Cass (268), Scott Snow (255), Austin O'Brien (252) and Joe Wittenburg (248).
Congratulations to senior bowler Joe Talbott. After being out of bowling for several years, he joined a league this year and bowled a very nice 636 series last Sunday.
The women scores were limited this week with Sharon Guinn rolling a 211 high game and 587 set in the Sugar & Spice League for the top score.
Vera Cruz bowlers of the week were David Flores, 791, and Stephanie Fuller, 690, both from the Sugar & Spice league.
Summer league schedules are available at the front desk at the Century Lanes. A summer league for youths is also planned.
The Woodlawn Lanes will have a meeting for the start of the Wednesday Duo on May 29 at 7 p.m. at the Woodlawn Bowling Center. The league is tentatively scheduled to start June 5.
