The Union Democrat Sports Department


For The Union Democrat

Scoring at Black Oak Lanes this week took a downturn, with 258 being the high game and nobody turning in a 700 series.

Ralph Caspary (Helakno Full House) found the mark pretty well though with a 258 game and 669 series to best Rick Hidalgo (High Rollers) who rolled a 666, by three pins for the men.

For the women, it was Sandra Lattin, who in two different leagues, had the high game of 227 (High Rollers) and 533 series in Jokers Wild which tied Sharon McThorn (Summer Morning Rollers) with the high total.

Other notable scores show Carroll Manning (High Rollers) with a 659 and

Les Olson (Helakno Full House) with a 254. There were no 700 series

bowled for this report.

In the, "I can't believe that I beat myself," we have Carroll

Manning (High Rollers) with 71/137 pins over average with 245/659; Bill

Hall and John Crass both of Young at Heart with 82/149 over with

226/581 and 79 over with 245, respectively.
