The duo of Gary Kerns and Betty Conner won the Scotch Doubles Tournament Jan. 19 at the Galaxy Bowling Center with a five-game score of 1,161, including handicap.

Thirty-four bowlers participated in this tournament which was coordinated by Madison County Bowling Association President Harvey Poynter and Lewis Jones, Jr. Partners, who alternate bowling in scotch doubles, were matched by a blind draw.

Three other teams also won cash prizes. Lemetta Dause and Dean Acker took second place with a score of 1,149, Mason Anglin and Kenny Smith were third with a score of 1,138 and Renda Roberts and David Norman placed fourth with a score of 1,126.

The Madison County Women’s Bowling Association will hold a 500/600 tournament on Feb. 10 at 2 p.m. at the Galaxy Center.
