LEXINGTON — John Hickam bowled the top scores at Galaxy this week with a 705 series and 277 game in the Monday Mixed League.

Miranda Reffitt rolled the best women’s series (546) and she and Narita Rose tied for the high game at 226 in the Monday league.

Seniors tournament        set for Sunday

The second monthly seniors tournament for men and women age 50 or higher will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday.

The entry fee is $15 to bowl three games. Prize money will be awarded to the three bowlers with the highest scores including handicaps.

Senior bowlers are encouraged to come and enjoy fun and fellowship with other seniors while bowling for cash prizes.

KHSAA Tourney moved         to Lexington

The 2014 Kentucky High School Athletic Association state bowling tournament will be held at the Eastland Lanes in Lexington in February.

This is the third year that the KHSAA has sponsored bowling as a sanctioned sport. The 2012 and 2013 state tournaments were held at the Executive Lanes in Louisville.

The 2014 Region 8 tournament will be held at the Galaxy Center in January. Both Madison Central and Madison Southern will have boys and girls teams competing in the regional tournament.

One or more local bowlers has qualified for the regional finals during the past two years, but no local bowler has yet qualified for the state tournament. Bowlers must place in the top four positions in a regional tourney to move on to the state tournament. Both Central and Southern have bowlers with the potential to make it to the state tournament next season.

Central is coached by Mark Harrison and J.J. Harrison, while Margaret Tilsley and Randy Burgess coach the Southern teams.
