BOWLING: Local ladies do well in state tourney

RICHMOND — Several Galaxy league bowlers finished among the leaders and earned cash awards at the seventh-annual Kentucky Women’s State Tournament which was held in Paducah on Oct. 26 through 28 and Nov. 3 and 4.

Jamie Sowder led the local contingent by qualifying for cash awards in four categories. All scores include handicaps.

Sowder placed first in the all events competition with a 1,961 total, which earned her $110.

Sowder teamed with Margaret Tilsley to finish second in the doubles competition with a score of 1,351 which earned the duo $251. Sowder collected another $10 by placing 51st in singles with a score of 600.

Keeley Gadd finished 16th in singles and earned $57 with her 635 score, and Jan Stepp collected $14 for placing 39th with a 609 series.

The quintet of Sowder, Tilsley, Jelemia Sanders, Beverly Aleshire and Brenda Marcum took ninth place in the team competition with a score of 2,933 and earned $167 for their efforts in this event.

Congratulations to all these ladies who represented the Madison County Women’s Bowling Association very well in this tournament.

Turkey Shoot

The Madison County Bowling Association conducted its seventh-annual Turkey Shoot tournament on Nov. 18.

This tournament used a combination of the 3-6-9 format, in which bowlers are awarded free strikes in the third, sixth and ninth frames, and the no-tap format, in which nine pins down with the first ball in a frame counts as a strike. This is a fun pattern which contributes to high scores.

Originally, frozen turkeys were awarded as prizes in this tournament, but it was found to be more practical to award $30 gift cards which the winners could use to purchase a turkey.

Gift cards were presented to the two men and two women with the highest scores.

Mark Rogers led the men with a four-game total score of 1,099 and Kenny Smith finished second at 1,090.

Narita Rose led the ladies with a 941 score, followed by Novel Davis at 864. Rose used the enhanced scoring system to roll the only 300 game for the day.

Bowlers who rolled three consecutive strikes (known as a turkey) were entered into a drawing to win one of eight additional $30 gift cards. Winning tickets were drawn for Judy Poynter, Todd Young, Joyce Kearns, Jenny Norman, Patricia Holtzclaw, Bruce Reffitt, Gary Kerns and Bobby Abrams.

The next MCBA tournament will be the annual Christmas No-tap tournament on Dec. 16.
