BOWLING: Jones Jr. rolls another 300 game


RICHMOND — Friday Night Mixed

As noted at the top of the column, Lewis Jones, Jr. bowled a 300 game in this league last week. This is the third perfect game rolled by Jones Jr. His previous 300 games were rolled in June 1994 and April 2010.

Jones Jr. said he was most worried about his first ball in the 10th frame and it appeared that his bid for a 300 game would be derailed when that ball looked to be too far right, but it hooked into the pocket at the last instant. His next two rolls were right on target.

Jones Jr. added games of 215 and 236 for a 751 series to lead the league in that category also.

Mark Rogers bowled a 714 series and Steve Woltering rolled the second-best game for the night at 278.

A 600 series was bowled by Woltering (676), John Hickam (676), Bobby Abrams (670), Glenn Masters (666), Bill Bowles (618) and Ronnie Hurd (600).

The 670 series by Abrams was a career best, topping his previous best of 640, which he had bowled on Monday night.

Narita Rose led the league’s ladies with a 204 game and 597 series, followed by Beverly Shearer at 190 and 510.

Galaxy Girls

Bridget Settles bowled a no-miss 199 game to lead this league last Tuesday. The second-best game was 196 by Narita Rose.

The highest series scores were rolled by Rose (528), Shella Cobb (522), Settles (519) and Charlotte Hackworth (519).

Splits were converted by Settles (3-10), Tammy Fourre (4-10), Brenda Williams (4-5), Carole Bales (5-10), Betty Lou Masters (4-5) and Beverly Shearer (3-10).


The top game (200) and series (474) in this league last Tuesday were bowled by Doris Gish.

Bridget Settles rolled the second-best game (170), while Linda Drummond and Becky Fraser tied for the second-high series at 449.

Splits were converted by Mary Lou Cox (5-10), Fannie Rice (3-10) and Dewey Locker (5-7).
