The Union Democrat Sports Department


For The Union Democrat

Two of the Winter leagues have started - Umchu Full House and Gambler's Getaway.

The majority will start next week, beginning on Tuesday. Some of the leagues still have openings for additional bowlers.

Rolling both the high game and series for the men was Jeremy Curry (Umchu Full House) with a 261/633. Taking the honors for the women, also from the same league, are Amanda Klaahsen with game of 203 and Holly Matranga with a series of 527.

The last of League Champions have been declared. In the Diamond Duos it

was the S&J consisting of Shirley Parades and Joe Rodriguez; and in

the uncertified leagues, in the Black Oak 9-Pin No-tap we have the

Tappers (Ruth Benson, Terry and Bill Hall) and in the Sonora Regional

Medical Center it was those Dangerous Dames (Jackie Ferreira, Julie

Kline, Sharon Miguel and Jane Gibler).

Available through USBC is a certification process for league

secretaries which can be done online. This certification process is

very similar to that which is offered for coaching.

In November, a certification process will be available for league

secretary/treasurer or just treasurer and next August the process of

certification will be available for league presidents.

The point behind this certification process is to help league

officers do their jobs better, regardless of how long they have been an

officer. It is not a mandated process, just a tool.

For additional information, go the website and then go to Rules and then certification.
