Davis leads area with 300 game, 804 set

Wilson’s Craig Davis rolled a perfect game and an 804 set to take the week’s top area bowling honors.

Scott Hixenbaugh followed Davis in scoring at Wilson Lanes, rolling 753/258. Bob Greene and Bill Kyle were next with 716 sets.

Troy Cubbage bowled 772/280 for the White Oaks’ high, leading an explosion  of high games at that  center. Eleven games were rolled with scores of 273 and higher. Darren Durbin followed Cubbage, scoring 767/277 then Jeremiah Howsare rolled a big 290 game in his 761 set.

At Rainbow Lanes, Bryan Jose bowled 759/257 for that center’s weekly high. Chris Riggleman was next high, scoring 728/268 with Tyler Mansfield rolling 726/267.

Dave Yates scored 722/269 for the week’s high mark at The Bowler. Cary Lowery and B.J. Curtis were next; Lowery bowled 709/246 and Curtis rolled 704/278.

Jack Tusing was Par-Matt’s leader bowling 716/258. Joe Lucas followed, scoring 697/268.

Corey Gatian scored 705/253 for the Sherwood high. Dave Richards Sr. was next, rolling 670/245.

In the PBA Experience League at White Oaks, Mike Sipple led the scoring with 682/268. Danny Walch and Jeremiah Howsare were next, rolling 664/244 and 658/233 respectively.

Rainbow’s Sandy Hott was the area’s top lady bowler for the week, scoring 611/237. Rae Piraino was next rolling, 594/222.

Autumn Gable’s 582/212 led the ladies at White Oaks. Vicki Coughlin was next, scoring 556/224.

Reesa Allwine was The Bowler’s top lady, rolling 566/221. Kathie Herbert was next, scoring 544/211.

Jennie Smith was Par-Matt’s leading lady, scoring 552/232. Nancy Glotfelty’s 525/179 was next high.

At Sherwood, Anna Durst bowled 550/211 and Alice Monahan rolled 505/185.

Wilson’s Pat Gwizdale bowled 531/180 and Sandy Smith scored 523/194.

George Gilmore was the area’s top senior bowler for the week, scoring 616/215 in the Antique Senior League at The Bowler. Jennie Evans rolled 532/224. At Par-Matt Lanes, senior Larry Reckart bowled 580/225 and Margie Loughry rolled 539/211. Don Shaw was the high senior at White Oaks. Janelle Grapes bowled 498/189.

Kasey Sullivan was the area’s top youth bowler for the week, rolling a big 731 set and high game of 257 at The Bowler. Randy Cubbage bowled 659/242. Sullivan was also the high youth at White Oaks, scoring 641/237. Bri Morris rolled 527/222. Tyler Iser bowled 535/269 and Kris Tusing rolled 472/175 at Rainbow Lanes.

I had the chance to watch a few matches of PBA bowlers on TV recently. Chris Barnes defeated Mika Koivuniemi 244 to 228 and Liz Johnson against Kelly Kulick and Johnson against Missy Parkin in the finals. You can read the accounts on bowl.com/news. The interesting point was that after a great performance against Kulick, Liz Johnson saw her strike shot evaporate due to changing lane conditions. She left two splits, a 4-6-7 in the second frame and a 4-6 in the fourth. The mental problem is that we all hate to change very much when the previous game was going so well. Liz defeated Kulick 267 to 260 in the semifinal but lost to Parkin 190 to 238 in the final.

Good luck bowling and have fun striking out!

  • Don’t do it. Don’t do it

    Temperatures have been moderate recently but are projected to rise to the upper 80s and low 90s later this week, so we want to remind you: Never leave children unattended in a vehicle.

  • He means well, and this time they spared his life

    Our pal Phil is the only re-enactor certified in writing by both the Lee and Custis families to portray Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee (whose wife was Mary Anna Custis Lee). When he’s in uniform, he generally stops at the bottom of the path that leads to the summit of Little Round Top, salutes Capt. Gary and First Sgt. Goldy and asks permission to join us. (Get it? Generally ... General Lee?) We always return his salute and grant him permission, in part because he’s our friend and also because the real Lee never got to see what it really looks like from up there. (Get it? Grant ... Grant? U.S. Grant? Real Lee ... really? OK. I hear you. That’s enough. Seriouslee.) Phil gets a kick out of being able to sneak up on us while we’re distracted by tourists.

  • It’s hotter here than in D.C. or Baltimore

    At this time of the year, the weather is a frequent subject of conversation, particularly the temperatures. We are now in the “Dog Days,” usually the hottest days of the year. The term comes from our sun appearing to be near the “Dog Star” (Sirius) and the “Little Dog Star” (Procyon). In reality, the sun is now about 94.5 million miles away while Sirius is 8.6 light years away with Procyon at 11 light years distance. Sunlight takes only 507 seconds to reach us, while the two dog stars’ light takes about a decade to travel to our eyes. So our sun is in the same direction (but not distance) as these two bright winter evening stars.

  • Mike Sawyers and his father, Frank Sale of quart-sized Mason jars lagging, merchants claim

    The opening day of Maryland’s squirrel hunting season is Sept. 6 and I am guessing you will be able to drive a lot of miles on the Green Ridge State Forest and see very few vehicles belonging to hunters of the bushytail. It wasn’t always that way. In the early 1960s, when I was a high school student in Cumberland, there was no Interstate 68. What existed was U.S. Route 40 and in the last couple of hours before daylight on the opening day of squirrel season there was an almost unbroken line of tail lights and brake lights between Cumberland and Polish Mountain.

    We feel pretty lucky on this side of the Potomac to have a nice shooting range to utilize for free and within decent driving distance.

  • Opposition and inclusion understood

    Those of you who have been here before know how I feel about the late great Len Bias, who I will remember foremost as Leonard Bias, the polite, spindly Bambi-eyed kid from Hyattsville’s Northwestern High School, who could throw a dunk through the floor, yet had the most beautiful jump shot I have ever seen.

    Kicking the can down the road was one of the things American kids did to pass the time in the old days, particularly if they lived in rural areas where there was little traffic to contend with.
