All three summer leagues at Galaxy Bowling Center are well into their seasons.
Mike Mitchell rolled the top game and series of the week during Monday’s Summer Cash League. He had a great night of bowling, as he just missed a perfect game to finish at 290 and almost hit the 800 series milestone with a 793.
Beginning Wednesday ,June 5, Galaxy Bowling Center will begin a sport shot weekly competition. A variety of difficult sport patterns will be put down over the course of 12 weeks for bowlers to challenge their skills on. This event will be open to anyone who wishes to participate, and money will be paid weekly to the top bowlers.

Monday Night Galaxy Classic
This league has concluded and below are the winning teams and high team scores for the season.
Prestige World Wide (Mike Stephen, Brandon Mullin, Richard Snowden and Kelby Robinson) clinched the league championship by just one point after winning all three games on the final night against first-half champions and second place finishers Maroon Lanes (Tyler Morgan, Dustin Woolery, Richard Rogers and Donnie Philbeck).
King Pins (Lynn Estes, Ron Roberts, Mike Taylor and Troy Conner) kept it a close race and ended up in the third place by two games.
Maroon Lanes rolled the top scratch team game of 1,046 and the best scratch series with 2,793 for the half.
With their 1,061 score, the King Pins had the top handicapped team game for the season. Prestige World Wide bowled an impressive 3,046 handicapped series to claim the top spot in that category.
Thursday Night Outcast
After 35 weeks of competition, Berry Patch (Dave McCracken, Richard Rogers and Johnny L. Johnson) cruised into the last night of competition in the enviable position of having already clinched the league championship. They ended up finishing with a seven and a half point lead over the second-place team Custom Designs (JR Martin, Aaron Rose, Daniel Benge and Shawn Barton).
One and a half points behind Customs Designs to claim third place for the season was Team 12 (Jennings Krahenbuhl, George Watkins and Cristopher Krahenbuhl).
The highest scratch team game for the season of 791 rolled by the BILFS (Dustin Mills, Ryan Carnes, Tony Felts and Ryan Felts). Berry Patch bowled the highest scratch series at 2,200.
With an 893 score, Jackson’s Auto (John Ragle, Jimmy Ramey and Eric Rapier) had the top handicapped team game. The Alley Cats (Jerry Grubb, Kelly Coates and George Caddell) finished the season with the best handicap series score of 2,317.
As a correction to last week’s column, I listed Corbin Roberts as the high average for this league, when in fact it was Johnny L. Johnson with the top average for the season with his 235 average.
