Derek Monahan and Jack Burner were Sherwood’s top bowlers scoring 650/186 and 646/237 respectively.

In White Oak’s PBA Experience League, Bobby Lannon rolled a big 725 set and a high game of 246. Mike Brobst and Bobby Benton were next high Brobst scored 681/257 and Benton rolled 618/213.

Crystal Uhl was the area’s top lady bowler for the week scoring 613/237 in The Bowler’s Winchester Mixed League. Dawn House was next high rolling 589/224.

Stephanie Hawley bowled 592/242 and was White Oak’s top lady for the week. Vicki Coughlin followed scoring 571/211.

Monica Fortino was Rainbow’s top lady bowler for the week. Pam Brinkman was next rolling 545/206.

John Hott was this week’s top senior bowler scoring 615/235 at The Bowler. Arlene Fatkin bowled 528/194 also at The Bowler. Senior, Ed O’Donnell bowled 524/205 and Loretta Stickley rolled 510/188 at White Oak Lanes.

Dylan Bean bowled 673/247 and Daylynn Andrews rolled 653/226 at White Oaks and was the week’s top youth bowler. Frank Llewellyn bowled 592/206 at Wilson Lanes. Matthew Clark’s 571/204 was the top youth at The Bowler and at Rainbow, Michael Bane’s 545/201 was that center’s top youth for the week.

The unusually mild weather has probably contributed to the high scoring in most of the area bowling centers. The middle and late sections of the fall bowling seasons normally have the highest scoring performance resulting from many factors. In my opinion the most important variable in bowling is the effect that your team and your opponents have in the changes to the lane oil conditions. By the middle part of the season, many bowlers have learned what ball and what line works best by watching their own team members reactions during their best scoring. That information along with consistent lane conditioning produces the best results.

Good luck bowling and have fun striking out!
