BOWLING: Jones Jr. leads the way at Galaxy

RICHMOND — Lewis Jones Jr. bowled the top scores at Galaxy last week with a 290 game and 743  series in the Wednesday Wonders League.

A 700 series was also bowled by Brandon Simpson, Ronnie Thomas, Barry Miller and Daniel Benge. Details are noted in the league highlights.

The highest women’s game for the week was 222 by Carole Bales in the Galaxy Girls League, while the best women’s series was 593 by Regina Barton in the Galaxy Classic League.

500/600 tournament set for Sunday

The annual 500/600 bowling tournament is scheduled for 2 p .m. Sunday.

A woman who has bowled a 600 series is paired with a partner who does not have a 600 series to her credit.

A team may also consist of two women who have each bowled a 500 series. A team may not include two 600 club members.

Women’s 700 series scores

Narita Rose rolled a 707 series in the Friday Night Mixed League on Jan. 18. At the time, this was believed to be the first 700 series bowled by a woman at Galaxy.

However, a search of the records by the MCBA association manager, Lewis Jones Jr., found that Regina Barton had bowled a 756 series at Galaxy in Feb. 2007. That series included the only 300 game bowled by a woman at Galaxy in league competition.

Two women bowled a 700 series at Maroon Lanes. Elaine Koroluk bowled a 716 series in Oct. 1989 and Margaret Tilsley rolled a 712 series in June 1991.
