This week we take a look at the Wednesday Senior league from Boulevard Lanes. The Wednesday Seniors has six teams that compete for 35 weeks. The league champion is determined by the best overall record.
With 18 weeks in the books, the two-time defending champion sits in first place. The Up C Daisies hold a five-game lead over the second-place team with a 43.5-28.5 record. Barb Benda, Rich Fuhr, Duane Spitz and Don Struebing form the Up C Daisies team.
The high team game and series for the year belongs to the Up C Daisies with a 765 and a 2,125. On the individual side of things, Shirley Henke owns the high game and high series for the ladies with a 205 and a 520. Carol Nicholson carries the high average for the women with a 148. For the men, Jerry Stutzman has both the high game and series with a 289 and a 646. Lowell Brock has the high average with a 176.

On the individual side of things, Struebing led the men with a 235 game and a 609 series. He was 60 pins over his average for his high game and 84 pins over his series average.
