Hixenbaugh near perfect; Bean, Gable close behind

Scott Hixenbaugh bowled the week’s high set of 812 and a near-perfect game of 298 at Wilson Lanes. Chris Bean, also at Wilson Lanes, scored a 299 game in his 696 set. Chad Gable scored 804/279 at White Oak Lanes. Wow — a big number of strikes tied to those three names, I would guess close to 85.

Following Hixenbaugh’s high, Bob Greene was next high at Wilson Lanes rolling 705/243.

Chad Gable’s 804/279 was White Oak’s high followed by Ron Roach bowling 756/276 in the Friday Night Mixed League.

Bryan Jose scored 769/268 for the Rainbow high. Chris Riggleman was next rolling 697/277 and Adam Braithwaite scored 694/278.

Corey Shirey and Cary Lowery were the high rollers at The Bowler. Shirey bowled 739/254 And Lowery scored 699/268.

Leonard Howsare bowled 684/235 for the Sherwood weekly high. Larry Housel Sr. was next rolling 648/236.

In the PBA Experience League at White Oaks, Bobby Lannon held first place for the week rolling 619/258. Mike Brobst was close behind scoring 615/212 followed by Adam Blackburn bowling 603/211.

Crystal Uhl was the area’s top lady bowler for the week rolling 647/237 at The Bowler. Dawn House was next rolling 625/256.

Autumn Gable was highest of the White Oak ladies scoring 580/225. Vivian Helsley was next rolling 552/237.

Pat Gwizdale bowled 570/192 at Wilson Lanes.

Wendy Atkinson rolled 554/210 for the ladies at Sherwood and Alice Monahan scored 547/195.

Katie Pownell and Dee Self were the top ladies at Rainbow. Pownell bowled 551/188 and Self rolled 547/196.

Senior John Barbe scored 648/227 at The Bowler and Dave Clem rolled 575/202. Beverly Narbut bowled 474/191. At White Oaks, Jim Edmands scored 580/215. Don Shaw rolled 549/210 and Shirley Plummer bowled 465/173.

Kasey Sullivan was the area’s top youth bowler for the week bowling 606/247 at White Oaks. Dylan Bean scored 574/212 and Mariah Snyder rolled 557/222. Frank Llewellyn bowled 583/212 at Wilson Lanes and Katherine Corbin rolled 411/148. Randy Cubbage was the top youth at The Bowler. Kayleigh Fleek scored 485/179. Rainbow’s Kris Tusing rolled 510/187 and Kim Northcraft bowled 465/189.

I hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving. We have much to be thankful for and our prayers must go to the many still suffering from the wrath of hurricane Sandy.

Christmas will be here too soon so let’s stay in shape and keep our sanity by bowling at our local center. Good luck bowling and have fun striking out!

  • 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.
