Kegler's Corner: Chabotte and Bergren dominate City Tournament

Last week’s 10-pin action was in full swing at Hood River’s Orchard Lanes. For the first time in weeks, the entire league schedule was completed and on top of that, the 65th annual City Bowling Tournament was conducted. Big scores and lots of new faces emerged in the limelight. Check out the highlights below.

We see a rosy bowling future for Jacque Long, Ciena Brittle, Austin Dehart, Cy Cannon, Patrick Hughes and Mark Kahoe. Well-known pin-pounding regulars Steve Byers, Jeff Miller and Lynn Spellman were brilliant in league action last week.

Steve led with a prodigious slump-busting scratch 742 set. Mark Chabotte and Fred Bergren were even better in the city tournament. Fred rolled a huge scratch 764 series, just nipping Mark’s sparkling 762. They both dominated the tournament, winning two events each with a special “hats off” to Mark, who won the scratch all-events title, which unofficially makes him the best bowler in town!

Stuart Sneider, Patrick Hughes and Mark Kahoe beat their averages by so many sticks last week that they made our vaunted league team of the week — each for the first time this season. Cy Cannon was so “on” last week, notching his first scratch 600 series of the season in league, which was an even 100 pins over his average that just missed making the team of the week and he capped it all by being on the city tournament team champions.

On a side note, there was one special oddity last week as Mac Proffitt bowled a triplicate scratch 201 in the Industrial. For those of you who are unfamiliar with such an event, it means Mac rolled a 201 in each of his first, second, and third games of the session, which is quite a feat in itself! Great bowling, everybody!
