Kegler's Corner: Mid-season highs

It was the best of times; it was the worst of times — great if you’re a skier, that is, if you could get up to the slopes, but not so good for bowlers. Our incessant downpour of snow forced cancellation of all leagues at Hood River’s frosty Orchard Lanes last week, except for the Wednesday night Fraternal League.

Quinton Cox made the most of his lone opportunity in the Fraternal by rolling a beautiful scratch 262 game and 626 series. Quinton was 137 pins over his average — the top 10-pin performance in league action last week.

We are at mid-season right now, so as we normally do at this point, it’s appropriate to recap the high scores in league action to date. These are your current top bowlers in town (all scores are scratch):
