Gable rolls another 300

Chad Gable rolled another perfect game. This week it was in the Industrial League at White Oaks.

The area’s top bowler for the week was Bobby Benton who scored an 800 set with a high game of 287. Joe Mullenax was next high bowling 714/247. Gable’s 695/300 was next. Jack Hendershot rolled a big 289 game in his 677 set.

At Rainbow Lanes Jake Dyche was highest bowling 758/268. Randy Likens was next high rolling 752/274.

Matt Riley was highest at The Bowler scoring 738/259. Ron King’s 716/268 was next followed by a 712/278 score posted by Dale Jones.

Robbie Knieriem bowled 669/245 for the week’s high at Sherwood Lanes. Derek Yates was next rolling 660/255.

In the PBA Experience League at White Oaks, Chad Gable was highest scoring 714/255 (last week he scored 692/300). Mike Brobst and Bobby Lannon followed Gable rolling 639/240 and 627/230 respectively.

Autumn Gable was the area’s top lady bowler for the week scoring 605/219 at White Oak Lanes. Pat Skidmore’s 552/205 was next high for the ladies.

Pam Brinkman’s 570/191 was the ladies high at Rainbow. Katie Pownell rolled 551/207 for the second place spot.

Dawn House and Reesa Allwine were the top ladies at The Bowler. House bowled 563/197 and Allwine rolled 550/211.

Wendy Atkinson bowled 530/200 and Alice Monahan rolled 510/193 at Sherwood Lanes.

Ray Foster was the week’s top senior bowler for the week scoring 617/224 at The Bowler. Vivian Helsley rolled 555/205 also at The Bowler. At White Oaks, Jim Edmands bowled 556/201 and Loretta Stickley scored 537/183.

Danny Walch rolled 710/259 at The Bowler and was the week’s top youth bowler. Randy Cubbage rolled 653/227. At White Oaks, Tanner Smith bowled 612/213 and Kasey Sullivan rolled 601/235. Brent Schofield scored 572/213 at Rainbow Lanes.

Making spares is still the primary problem for most bowlers. I continue to advise that you must learn to throw a straight ball at spares in order to make a significant improvement in your bowling average. The two-handed bowling craze that seems to be attracting a number of young bowlers also subject to spare problems. Those bowlers must learn that lesson as well. It is not difficult to control the direction of the rotation using two hands but it is easier if you use a finger or two for the best accuracy.

Good luck bowling and have fun striking out!

  • Hold on a minute ... we know these guys

    Tom Bosley says this isn’t the Garrett County revival of “Space Cowboys”. They’re just getting the band back together — Bosley, Don Stemple, Oren Yoder and Matt Redinger. They’ve been there, done that, and they’re ready, willing and able to be there and do it again.

  • For Maryland, a better place to be

    Maryland is a Big Ten school. Has a strange feel to it, doesn’t it? A strange feel, perhaps, but a fresh feel and a good feel.

  • FSU Planetarium has new outreach program

    Several years ago, the FSU planetarium acquired an iPad. Months later, we purchased an iPad projector with necessary cables. I purchased a number of astronomical apps this year for the iPad. So I’m interested in visiting schools in this county to teach the stars and planets to classes. The astronomical apps allow you to survey the current evening night sky and show the planets, bright stars and star groups. One of the apps shows the planets close up with wonderful surface detail (as if you were cruising by in a spaceship). The apps I’ll be using can be purchased from the iTunes app store for a few dollars.

  • O’s, Pirates will be buyers, but when?

    Not that we should expect any blockbuster deals to go down as Thursday’s non-waiver trade deadline approaches, but the names you hear in Baltimore are catcher Kurt Suzuki and starting pitchers Ian Kennedy, A.J. Burnett and Jorge De La Rosa.

  • Peanuts and Cracker Jack beat any foam finger

    Times have changed, and for the better, as this week marks the third year in a row NFL training camps have opened and have not taken center stage in the cities of Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Washington. That, of course, is due to the play of the three baseball teams that inhabit said cities, the Orioles, the Pirates and the Nationals — two of whom hold first place in their respective divisions, with the other one entering play on Wednesday just 2 1/2 games out of first.
