Kegler's Corner

She’s definitely been on a tear, for the last four weeks of league action: Sandy Holmes has averaged over 204 with her latest effort, the best so far, a sparkling 663 series that she popped in the Tuesday Nite Mixed league at Hood River’s Orchard Lanes.

Sandy led all women in scoring last week in both series and game action. She rolled a solid 245 game in the TNM. She was 102 pins over her average for her night’s work and to top everything, Sandy earns the clean-up spot on the team of the week.

You’ve got to love this game where women are on an equal basis with men. Sandy’s talented tosses can beat any man anywhere!

Last week was doubly special as Sandy was joined by perennial all-star Nancy Asai on the team of the week. Nancy racked up a fine 647 series in the same session.

Bowling can be a fickle game; one week you’re on top of the world, can’t do anything wrong, strikes seem to come so easily and the next week you can’t buy one. But, that’s not the case for our new senior star, Gordon Sim. Gordon seems to find the top just about every time he laces up his shoes. And, last week was no exception as he blasted another fine series in the Wednesday afternoon Colts and fillies league.

Gordon notched 242 and 257 games on his way to a super 690 series. In so doing he raised his average to a fantastic 213 pins per game, which, with few exceptions is better than most of our young stars that compete in local league action.

Once again, you’ve got to love this game where you can not only do it for life, but you can do it so well and compete with the best youngsters! You can’t say these things about other sports.

Great bowling everybody!
