We are still on an 11 in a row kick apparently as this week two more were added to the record books for the season.
Dwight Blair was as close as one can get to perfect with a 299 scored in game two of the Friday Night Mixed Rollers at Twin Oaks.
Blair had 221 for game one before stringing the front eleven strikes of game two.
Blair’s leave was not reported but he came back with a 213 to sum up 733 for the night.
Our next at bat was David Fishbeck of the Goodyear Bowling League at Thunderbird Lanes.
Fishbeck had games of 256 and 215 leading into game three that started with a spare in the first frame.
He then put his eleven strikes in a row together for a 290 closer, finishing the night with a nice 761 for series.
The week’s high game and the week’s high series seldom comes from the same bowler and this week was par for the course as Ray Johnson takes down high series recognition for a 793 from the Tuesday Night Mixed league at Twin Oaks.
Johnson started the night with back to back 268’s but was a bit shy of a triplicate with a 257 closer to make up the super set.
James Clemons was in the zone in the same league, rolling 267, 207 and 276 for a 750 and Chris Lowe shot 728 on games of 255, 214 and 259.
Johnson also did his part in the Suburban league, posting 237, 257 and 268 for a 762.
Josh Schoonover found his way to a 718 thanks to closing games of 247 and 257 and Tracy Price inched over the target at 701 on games of 218, 257 and 226.
Coming off of last week’s perfect 300 game, Paul Davis penciled in a 708 set this week that went 238, 246 and 224 and Michael Bess joined the century club with a 281 game bowled off a 167 average.
The TNT league showed Chad Perry at the top of the list with a 731 series on games of 257, 238 and 236, followed by Steve Mans who shot 226, 277 and 202 for a 705.
Our final shout-out for the week goes to Duane Hurwitz for bowling a stepladder 603 set that went 200, 201 and 202.
Youth bowling is on hold for another week to allow for Spring Break travels and vacations.
