League highlights

Galaxy Cash League

Three men led the way as this league returned to action on Monday after a week off for the Memorial Day holiday.

The high series scores were 702 by David Norman, 681 by Gary Cromer and 680 by Brandon Simpson. This trio also rolled the high games — 267 by Cromer, 264 by Simpson and 256 by Norman.

A 600 series was also bowled by Matt Cracraft (678), Joe Bryant (649), Charlie Jason (645), Mike Hilvers (635), Mark Rogers (632), Randy Burgess (628), Andrew Magedanz (615), Adam Cummings (607) and David Roop (605).

No-tap doubles league

In addition to regular strikes, nine pins down with the first ball in a frame counts as a strike in no-tap leagues.

Steve McKnight bowled a true 300 game on Tuesday as he rolled 12 consecutive 10-pin strikes in the first game of his series.

Unfortunately, he does not qualify for a ring from the United States Bowling Congress because this is not a sanctioned 10-pin league. But, this does not make his feat any less noteworthy.

Lewis Jones Jr. bowled an 804 series and Bill Bowles rolled an 801 series, which included his second no-tap 300 game of the summer.

A 700 series was bowled by Ron Roberts (790), Lewis Jones Sr. (740), McKnight (738), David Robinson (721), Ronnie Hurd (711) and Rick Stamper (704).

The next-best men’s games, after McKnight and Bowles, were 287 by Robinson, 278 by Jones Jr. and 278 by Roberts.

Tina Hisle led the league’s ladies with a 287 game and 694 series, followed by Sara Zuercher at 246 and 630 and Alice Faulkner at 246 and 602.

The next-best women’s games were bowled by Betty Lou Masters (238), Ellen Spurlock (235) and Renda Roberts (235).

Evelyn Mitchell converted a 5-10 split.

Best local women’s games

Recognition was provided in last week’s column for the 45 men who have bowled a total of 69 perfect games at the Maroon Lanes and at the Galaxy Center. Thus, there is 45-way tie for the high men’s game bowled locally at a score of 300.

The women who bowled the highest game scores at the Maroon Lanes and at Galaxy are saluted in today’s column.

The top women’s games at the Maroon Lanes were obtained from a display listing the top 12 women’s scores bowled at that venue before it closed. I have attempted to match that list with the top 12 women’s games at Galaxy.

The scores at Galaxy came from reviewing my columns in the Register from 2007 to the present, as I was unable to find any listing of the high women’s games at Galaxy prior to that time.

If anyone has knowledge of women’s scores at Galaxy higher than those listed, I would be pleased to note such scores in a future column.

Two women — Novel Davis and Beverly Shearer — appear on the top 12 lists for both the Maroon Lanes and the Galaxy Center.
