Snow captures top score
Sept. 23, 2017 at 9:45 p.m.
Scott Snow had a rugged start during the first game of Sundowner League play last Thursday night with a single pin miss and three splits open to finish with a 183 game. The second game he found a better strike line and rolled a very nice 245 and that propelled him to a great closing game of 265. A split open in the 8th frame was the only blemish in the last game that produced 11 strikes. The two big games allowed him to earn the weekly high series honors with a 693 total.
Competing in the same league, DoLee Knowlan posted a 248 high individual game on his way to a 690 series and second high.
T.J. Mooney and Lindy Conner each bowled two big sets with scores of 269-673/651 and 667/660 respectively.
Other bowlers breaking the 250-650 mark were Jerry Cano (667), Steve Dickinson (665), Larry Hall (658), Bobby Marquez (651), and Tom Crowe who rolled an exceptional 273 high individual game on his way to a 649 total.
Christine Speer was consistent during Sundowner League action to produce individual games of 206, 200, and 223 to lead the women's effort with a very nice 629 series.
Olivia Jackson produced an outstanding 254 high game on her way to a 608 total during Sugar & Spice League play. She also rolled a 562 total for the third high women's score. Beka Cowan posed a nice 555 set.
Gutierrez and Schmidt going strong
With the Over The Hill senior league completing three weeks of play, we are happy to have our most senior male and female bowlers back for another year. Dan C. Gutierrez at the age of 95 and Doris L. Schmidt at the age of 87 are still going strong. Anytime I think I am getting old, I look at them and gain new enthusiasm.
A reminder to friends of Norman Watkins that a celebration of life service will be held Saturday at Colonial Funeral Home at 1:30 p.m. Norm passed away after a 4 year battle with cancer. Bowlers may remember him as the friendly man with the bright suspenders. I offer my condolences and sympathy to the family.
World Series of Bowling
The GEICO World Series of Bowling IX will kick off the 2017-18 Go Bowling PBA Tour schedule at the Reno Bowling stadium in November. So far there are 19 countries world wide that are represented. I am sure that there will be new faces that will make their mark in the coming season.
