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!

  • Restore them Restore them

  • Happy Easter

    For the world’s more than 2 billion Christians, Easter is the day that defines their faith.
    The exact date of Christ’s resurrection is unknown, and even the precise locations of his crucifixion and burial are uncertain. This hasn’t stopped some people from saying they know the answer to these questions and others from trying to find out for themselves, or simply arguing about it.

  • Odds are good that you didn’t know this

    Odds or Probabilities fascinate many people. There is a special website called www.BookOfOdds.com and an accompanying location on Facebook at /BookofOdds .This website lists 400,000 odds. Three of the people who are involved in this media display have coauthored a book, “The Book of Odds” that presents some of key odds, drawing from polls and statistics published in journals. The authors are A. Shapiro, L.F. Campbell and R. Wright. This paperback was published this year by Harper Collins with ISBN 978-0-06-206085-3.

  • Trivial questions you don’t have to answer

    Every so often in this life, my mind, all on its own, generates questions that have no real answers. So I have decided to pass them on to you. I’m tired of them. If you come up with any answers, let me know. Remember when TV jealously guarded the time zone before 9 p.m. for wholesome shows that children could watch. My gosh, how many years ago was that? It seems like another world nowadays, when you can see murders, torture and rape, or those implied, every hour on the hour, somewhere on your public screen. It might be comforting then, to remember that most children nowadays are glued to their little machines with whole different worlds on them, that they can access all day long. Except that in these different worlds they also can view murders, torture and rape on demand.

  • Think it’s not a small world? You’re wrong

    Yes, you read that right in the paper a couple of weeks ago. I covered a wedding as a newspaper reporter. I’ve retired from doing regular stories because my primary duties lie elsewhere, and I don’t have the time or mental energy for it. But I agreed to do it for a couple of reasons, one of which goes back more than 40 years. The former proprietor of The Famous North End Tavern told me about a wedding that was to take place at the Lions Center for Rehabilitation and Extended Care, where his wife works.

  • No Bambi for you, Mrs. Doe

    Some people want so badly for deer birth control to work that they actually think it will, even on wild populations.
    I wish I had a couple bridges to sell.
    A week ago on the Outdoors page we ran the deer there do what deer  everywhere do. They eat the easiest food available such as gardens and ornamental plantings. They walk in front of moving cars. They give ticks and  parasites a place to live.
