Tom Crowe was the only bowler this past week to bowl a 700 series to take the weekly high series.
Crowe, who moved to Victoria from Colorado, has many years of bowling experience and last week demonstrated his ability to find and lock on to a great strike shot.
During Sugar & Spice League action, he rolled games of 255, 246, and a final great game of 277 for a 748 total. A 7-pin spare in the seventh frame was his only non-strike frame in the last game.
He was also the high roller in the Red River League with a 268 high game contributing toward a 694 set.
Congratulations also go to Crowe for breaking the bank at the Century Lanes for a very nice payday.
Kevin Stacy took a page from his dad and rolled a very nice 248-690 set for the second high score.
Other scores of note for the men were Eric Smith (264-682), Scott Snow (248-676/657), Todd Pfuhl (669), Jacob Silgero (665/255-650), Mark Svatek (664), Calvin Bigham (246-661), Mark Redding (246-660), T.J. Mooney (657), Bobby Marques (258), John Martinez (256), John Cooper (249), and Bob Korczynski with an excellent 289 individual game.
Lori Heil bowled a great score to make the "big girl" section.
Competing in the Sundowner League, Heil started the first game clean, but without a double for a 194. She then found her strike ball to finish with games of 254 and 204 to total a great 652 series for the women's high.
As for the "big girl" comment, every time Lori bowled a score high enough to make it past the small print, her mom complemented her by telling her she was scoring with the big girl high rollers.
Two other women bowlers also broke the 600 mark. Christine Speer with nice games of 200, 234, and 204 rolled a 638 series, and Bailey Koebrick posted a 227 high game, which contributed towards a 620 total.
Vera Cruz Restaurant bowlers for the week were Tom Crowe 751 (Sugar & Spice) and Lori Heil 721 (Sundowners).
