BOWLING: Secchi takes state senior title

RICHMOND — Janie Secchi finished as the state champion in the 60-64 age group of the Senior Women’s State Tournament, which was held at Galaxy on Oct. 5 and 6. Secchi collected $100 for her first-place finish and she qualified for the senior women’s national tournament in Reno, Nev., in July 2014.

Five other local ladies placed high enough to earn cash awards.

Sue Hegelmeyer finished second and Beverly Shearer placed fourth in the 55-59 division, earning $87 and $50, respectively.

Carroll Hackworth and Jelemia Sanders placed third and fourth in the 75-and-older division winning $72 and $61, respectively, and

Lois Evans collected $46 by placing seventh in the 65-69 division.

The number of positions qualifying for cash awards was determined by the number of entries in each division.

The 205 participants from throughout the Commonwealth bowled six games each — a total of 1,230 games. There were three sessions each day with most of the Galaxy lanes in use for each session. The winners were determined by the actual scores bowled plus handicaps.

Congratulations are due Madison County Women’s Bowling Association manager Velma Cruse, who served as the tournament director, for operating this large tourney in a most efficient manner with the help of the MCWBA board members and the staff of the Galaxy Center.
