Two more leagues to open
A league with four-person teams is scheduled to start tonight and another four-person team league is slated to begin on Monday.
Both of these leagues feature free lineage with all the fees going to the prize fund. This will result in large pay outs at the end of the season.
Bowlers can call Galaxy at 624-4444 or come early to the first session to join one or both of these leagues.
Women’s top 2012-13 performances
The official United States Bowling Congress season runs from Aug. 1 to July 31 each year. However, the majority of the action in sanctioned leagues occurs between August and April. Thus, this is an appropriate time to recognize the top accomplishments by the bowlers at Galaxy this season.
The top achievements by women in the three major statistical categories — average, series score and game score — are noted in this column. The top achievements by the men at Galaxy will be listed in next week’s column.
Bowlers who participate in a sanctioned league this summer will have an opportunity to join these leaderboards or move up.
The averages listed are the bowler’s best average in any one sanctioned league. The USBC does not combine scores from multiple leagues. A bowler must roll at least 21 games in a league for an average to be recognized as official.
