Lyman secures top score
Nov. 11, 2017 at 8:57 p.m.
ABEL GARCIA Rob Lyman was probably not aware he needed a double in the 10th frame of the third game to secure his first weekly high scoring honors, but that was the end result.
He rolled individual games of 234, 247 and 234 to post a 715 total in Sundowner League play for his first 700 in Victoria. Only one miss in the three games helped his score also.
Lyman worked hard with bowling lessons and new bowling ball to improve his game and he has risen from a 180 average last year to 211 in the Sundowner League.
He had given up bowling for about 25 years before returning to the lanes three years ago with renewed enthusiasm. With the big set, I am sure the enthusiasm and confidence will grow.
Lindy Conner was a second bowler to break the 700 mark with individual games of 268, 214 and 223 contributing toward a 705 total in the Sugar & Spice League.
Shawn Miller also scored well in the Sundowner with a 697 total for third high.
Larry Hall was high bowler in the Monday Mixed League with a great 269 high game contributing towards a 692 series.
Other bowlers breaking the 250-650 mark were Glenn Mason (267-689), T.J. Mooney (684), Dandy Richards (682), Mike Stacy (674), Tom Crowe (251-664), Steve Dickinson (249-656) and Jeff Cass (656).
Lyssa Conchola has been improving her average for three years. She broke the 600 mark during Sundowner League competition to lead the women's scoring.
Individual games of 205, 219 and a final game of 180 helped toward a 604 series.
Other nice scores for the ladies were Terri Mason 584, Lisa Williams 579, Lori Hammack 235-577 and Saundra Calliham with an 265 individual game.
