BOWLING: Local bowlers bring home medals


RICHMOND — Monday Mixed

The teams which finished in the top three positions in this sanctioned league were recognized in last week’s column.

The Lexington-based Pittsnogglers (Zach Niekirk, Matt Cracraft and Tyler and Andrew Magedanz) won the league championship.

Git-R-Done (Terry Jackson, John Rice, David Norman and Brandon Simpson) finished second, while third place went to Hammer Time (Todd Young, Nate Rosenbauer, Gary Cromer and Carl Daniels).

The individual leaders for this league are cited in today’s column.

The highest averages were recorded by Brandon Simpson (226), Andrew Magedanz (222), Matt Cracraft (219), John Hickam (213) and Lewis Jones Jr. (206).

Magedanz rolled the top series (782), followed by Simpson (767), Neil Haggard (736), Jones Jr. (726) and Hickam (714).

The highest games were 299 by Simpson, 279 by Haggard, 279 by Cracraft, 279 by Magedanz and 277 by Hickam.

The best women’s averages were compiled by Miranda Reffitt (182), Narita Rose (170), Beverly Shearer (168) and Kymmi Bowles (152).

Rose bowled the highest women’s series (657), followed by Reffitt (651), Shearer (595) and Bowles (525).

The best women’s games were 246 by Reffitt, 235 by Rose, 214 by Bowles and 213 by Shearer.

Most improved honors were earned by Todd Young for the men and Kymmi Bowles for the women.

Summer Cash Money

Brandon Simpson, who has just joined this league as a replacement for a bowler who dropped out, bowled the best scores on Monday with a 248 game and 645 series.

Tyler Harris rolled the second-best scores with a 233 game and 616 series.

Substitute John Hickam bowled a 268 game and 705 series.

Tuesday No-tap Doubles

Nine pins down with the first ball in a frame counts as a strike in no-tap leagues.

Bobby Abrams led this league on the final night of the season with a no-tap 300 game and 797 series. Abrams is the seventh league member to roll a no-tap 300 game this summer.

Ron Roberts rolled the second-best game (280), while the second-high series was bowled by Todd Young (793).

Tina Hisle bowled the best women’s game (278) and series (776). Sue Hegelmeyer and Beverly Shearer tied for the second-best game (265), while the second-high women’s series was bowled by Kymmi Bowles (663).

A 700 series was also bowled by Roberts (777), John Hickam (729), Gary Cromer (721) and Donnie Barger (720).

Other bowlers who rolled a 600 series included Lynn Estes (682), Bill Bowles (676), Kyle Shultz (645), Shearer (638), Hegelmeyer (615) and Donna Fourre (611).

Hammer Time (Todd Young and Gary Cromer) captured the league title with 48 wins. Each team in the league was awarded $10 for each game won. Thus, Hammer Time collected $480 for its first-place finish.

The higher than usual payoffs were possible because Galaxy offered free lineage for the summer leagues.

MM & RR (Mary Mink and Ron Roberts) finished second with 46 wins and Low Rollers (Kymmi and Bill Bowles) placed third with 42 wins.

Strike Train (Jan Stepp and Lynn Estes) finished fourth with 41 1/2 wins — just ahead of It Doesn’t Matter (Narita Rose and John Hickam), which won 41 games and finished fifth in the 22-team league. Teams are awarded one-half win each when a match ends with a tied score.

The individual leaders for this league’s season will be recognized in next week’s column.
