League highlights

Friday Night Doubles

This league was originally scheduled to be a sanctioned league with four-person teams. However, the members voted to make it a non-sanctioned doubles league.

The league started play last week and will bowl a 12-week season with the final night set for July 26. The league will not bowl on July 5 because of the Independence Day holiday.

John Hickam bowled the high game (257) and series (705) on the opening night, while the second-best game (246) and series (598) were rolled by Todd Young.

Monday Night Mixed

This league opened Monday with eight four-person teams. The league will bowl a 12-week schedule and finish on July 22. This is the only sanctioned league at Galaxy this summer.

David Norman (249) and Brandon Simpson (246) bowled the top games on the opening night, while the best series scores were 711 by Simpson and 649 by Neil Haggard.

A 600 series was also bowled by Matt Cracraft (629), Aaron Rose (621), Andrew Magedanz (617), Glenn Masters (613), Bill Bowles (612) and Gary Cromer (601).

The high women’s game (244) and series (616) were bowled by Miranda Reffitt. Narita Rose was second in both measures with a 212 game and 547 series. Beverly Shearer rolled a 533 series.
