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!

  • It’s a secret It’s a secret

    Could someone enlighten us about why not even the names of the two entities bidding on development of the Footer Dye Works building can be divulged?
    A Times-News article about the bids included an explanation from a lawyer for the attorney general’s office about the need to keep the names and other information secret at this time. Despite that, the logic of not divulging at least a little more information escapes us.

    Now that Maryland has become the 17th state to (finally) decriminalize possession of marijuana, one could say that the legislature and governor should be patted on the back for doing the right thing.

  • The first step Remember where your freedom comes from before criticizing

    The deal at Fort Hood could have been avoided if it was caught in time.
    When you think a GI is not acting right, have him or her checked out before you put them back on duty and give them a weapon. Post-traumatic stress disorder is a serious and dangerous problem if it is not taken care of right away.

  • Midterm elections give chance to return to American values

    A movement has been started by veterans of our armed forces to get out the vote in 2014. That includes Coast Guard and Merchant Marine personnel for those not familiar with the history of both and their sacrifice. This is no small special interest  group, but many millions of Americans who can have an enormous impact on the  outcome of the November election if they all respond.
