Julie Greene’s 647/225 was the ladies high at Wilson Lanes. Barbara Cox was next rolling 560/227.

Katie Pownell and Dee Self were the week’s top ladies at Rainbow. Pownell bowled 576/216 and Self was a pin back rolling 575/235.

Stephanie Hawley was White Oak’s top lady rolling 555/213. Michele Hitchins was next scoring 537/203.

Wendy Atkinson bowled 526/194 at Sherwood Lanes.

Seniors Stan Teets rolled 567/224 at The Bowler and Loretta Stickley bowled 547/199 at White Oaks.

Matthew Clark was the area’s top youth bowler for the week scoring 655/243 at The Bowler. Daylynn Andrews rolled 628/231 at White Oaks. Jeff Hixenbaugh bowled 569/193 at Wilsons and Michael Bane scored 566/196 at Rainbow Lanes.

The extremely nice weather that I’m sure we all like hasn’t helped my bowling average. I think about playing golf, hiking, hunting and other outdoor sports, a reverse “cabin fever” feeling. At least that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.

Make the best of the rest of this bowling season. Practice making spares especially those single pin seven and ten pins. The best way is to throw a straight ball for spares (single and double pins).

Good luck bowling and have fun striking out!
