(This report covers the scores from the week of October 8-14 as bowled at Black Oak Lanes.)

An interesting score jumped off the page this past week.

In the Morning Rollers League, the Dare Devils almost rolled rare triplicate games, 680-680-688, for a 2,048 series. The team's members are Shirley Burk, Sheryl Breaux, Pat Choate and Dave Choate, and yes, they won all four games.

This week's men's high-game belongs to Jonathan Sheffield (High Rollers) with a 265, which is also 108 pins over his average. High-series for the men goes to Matt Clay (Senior Merrymakers) with a 698.

The women's high-game and high-series belongs to Mary Feola (High Rollers) for the second week in a row with a 233 and a 583, respectively.

Bryton Kuhl and Bert Sundling, 5, were the youth stars, bowling 72 pins over average for a 189 game and rolling 33 pins over average to finish with a 168 series, respectively. Not bad for Sundling, a bowling newcomer.

Other notable scores include: High Rollers - Nan Anderson 568; Morning Rollers - Bruce Peterson 257/677; Young at Heart - Ruth Benson 231, John Rago 661; Jokers

Wild - Les Starks 263, Warren Walker 652; Umchu Full House - Jim Simmons 255/672,

Recent money winners in the South Lake Tahoe SIRS tournament include: Don and Jan Banchero in Doubles, Jan Bancheron in Division B All Events, and Bert Abreo and yours truly in their respective divisions in Singles.

A correction is last week's report needs to be noted - Dave Rossi (Umchu Full House) did not bowl and the scores reported belong to Kevin Flanagan (Umchu Full House).
