For The Union Democrat

Leading off this week's report is Robert Porovich who rolled a perfect 300 game in Jokers Wild.

Last week, he missed perfection by just one pin in the same league. The 299 game with a 772 series is high for the men for this report.

High for the women is Arleen Williams and Kay Hunter (both of Young at Heart) with 224 games and 532 series, respectively.

Porovich was not alone in the 700 department as Jeremy Curry and Dan

Isam (High Rollers) each had one, 744 and 738, respectively.

Other notable scores: High Rollers – Jeremy Curry 279, Warren Walker 696, Dan Isam 267; Diamond Duos - Joe Rodriguez 656.

The "I can't believe I beat myself" club inducted Joe Rodriguez as he

bowled 108 pins over average with the second highest game this report,

289; Jeremy Curry (High Rollers) 80/147 pins over with 279/744 and

Robert Porovich (Jokers Wild) 77 pins over with the 299.

In the Black Oak 9-Pin No-Tap league Gerry Davis tried hard for a 300

game, but left four pins for a 296 game while Chris Parreira had high

series with a 751.

For the women, I was fortunate enough to share the top spots with Kay Hunter. I bowled a 263 and Kay had a 687 series.

The Wild Nite Out league had the top spots for women with Brandy

Stowers and Jennifer Mueller each rolling a 203 and Nanette Warzee

netted a 551.

For the men it was Bryan Mueller (keeping the top honors in the family) with 217 and Brian Kermeen with 521.
