Galaxy leaderboards for men
The reduced league activity last week provides an opportunity to recognize the top performances to date for the men bowling in sanctioned leagues at Galaxy.
Fifteen men have compiled an average of 200 or higher thus far this season, while 13 men had reached that level at this point last season.
The average listed is the bowler’s best average in any one league in which he has bowled a minimum of 21 games.
A series score of 700 or higher has been bowled by 17 men this season compared to 16 last season.
The number of men who have bowled a game of 275 or higher is 14 this season — up from the 10 men who had reached that level at this point in the season last year.
Two men — Ron Gugel and John Hickam — have rolled a 300 game this season, while a 300 game had been bowled by four men at this point last season — Gugel, Brandon Simpson, John Poynter and Neil Haggard.
