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.

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!
