— Bob Sines rolled a perfect game at Rainbow Lanes scoring 719/300. Two others were near perfect, Cary Lowery scored 782/299 at The Bowler and Jack Hendershot rolled 769/297 at White Oak Lanes.

The area’s top scoring bowler was Randy Likens bowling 791/279 (a lot of strikes in that score as well). Bobby Lannon was next rolling 745/264. Seven 700’s were scored at Rainbow for the week.

Cary Lowery’s 782 was The Bowler’s top followed by Alex Shirey bowling 735/278. The Bowler’s score for 700’s was five (covered 2 weeks).

At White Oak Lanes, Hendershot’s 769 was tied by Darren Durbin rolling 769/277. Teddy Inman scored 718/254. Six 700s were rolled at White Oaks.

Butch Young’s 653/259 was Sherwood’s high for the week. Justin Richards was next rolling 647/244.

In White Oaks PBA Experience League, A.J. Bishop was highest scoring 640/223. Mike Sipple and Josh Barrett were next scoring 630/230 and 609/235, respectively.

Autumn Gable was the top lady bowler for the week scoring 614/233 at White Oaks. Vivian Helsley was next rolling 562/191.

Crystal Uhl‘s 608/212 was highest of the ladies at The Bowler. Dawn House was next rolling 570/194.

Rainbow’s top ladies were Sandy Hott and Dee Self. Hott rolled 579/201 and Self scored 540/203.

Sherwood’s Alice Monahan bowled 506/172 and Ali Eller rolled 485/205.

The area’s top senior for the week was Joe Corbin. Corbin’s score was 594/213 in the Golden Oldies League at The Bowler. Nellie of the Early Birds rolled 495/189. At White Oaks, Jim Edmands bowled 524/223 and Carolyn Hott rolled 503/176.

Kasey Sullivan was the week’s top youth bowler scoring 614/225. Kylie Humbertson bowled 479/161. Rainbow’s youth high was rolled by Konnar Pattison’s 526/208. Kim Northcraft bowled 500/184. At The Bowler Carter Nave scored 507/187 and Hanna Smith rolled 448/203.

A number of bowlers seem to be getting back their bowling form from the summer’s layoff. At least that’s what several 700’s tell me. It could also be improved performance because of experience in the Sport League and also by bowling in more than one bowling center.

I hope to get future columns on a regular weekly basis. No excuses now, my laptop has a new battery and the election is over.

Good luck bowling and have fun striking out!
