This week, our featured league is the Monday Night Strikers at Westbrook Lanes.
Gail Bomar, the league secretary, says they have an eleven-team league that bowls 34 weeks. The winners of each half will meet to determine the league champion.
At the start of league play, the Space Cadets sit in first place with a 15-5 record. Connie Krzycki, Jeanne Oakley, Harriette Janicek, Marge Payzant, Joni Ebel and Bomar form the Space Cadets. Two-time defending champions, Reinecke Motors held both high team and series scores with a 873 and a 2292. Connie Wachal, Elaine Abraham, Connie Jedlicka, Shirley Wachal and Luann Vavricek all bowl for Reinecke Motors.
Lamplighter shot the high team game and series with a 800 and a 2295, respectively, during league play on Oct. 2. Lamplighter’s series was a new season high. Lorraine Wieseman, Kim Hablitzel, Janis Sculley, Connie Sperling and Lou Stallings bowled for Lamplighter. Woosley had a 244 game and a 588 series. Both scores are new season highs.
There were four bowlers who shot more then 80 pins over their series average. Leading the way was Joan Davidshofer, who was 118 pins over with a 505 series. Stallings was 99 pins above with a 516 series. Karen Lesiak and Deb Girard were both 81 pins to the good. Lesiak had a 498 series, while Girard had a 486 series.
Eleven other bowlers shot games that were at least 30 pins over average. Jenn Noonan was 56 pins over with a 181. Virginia Reichmuth’s 186 was 50 pins to the good. 46 pins above with a 165 was Renae Bilstein. Shirley Wachal, Jo Cooke and Kathi Jones all were 39 pins over. Shirley Wachal had a 192, Cooke had a 177 and Jones rolled a 147.
Wieseman’s 148 was 37 pins on the positive side. Rayetta Williams was 35 pins over with a 175. Bomar was 32 pins above with a 175. Last, but not least, Jeanne Gronenthal and Mary Beiermann were both 31 pins over with a 156 and 144 respectively. Nice bowling to one and all.
