As of Tuesday, January 23, 2018
Young Levi Phelps garnered the gold in last week’s league action at Hood River’s Orchard Lanes. Levi’s smooth strokes struck for a stack of strikes in the hi-octane Wednesday night Fraternal league as he joined the exclusive club of bowlers who have shattered the 700 barrier this season. Levi tossed a sweet scratch 708 three game series, beating his average by 141 pins.
Levi has been a key player in his team’s unprecedented three straight wins in this challenging league as they have a 10 point lead with just two weeks to go in round two. If they win round two, they automatically qualify to bowl for a record four-peat in the league championship battle!
Jeff Miller and Lynn Spellman also pummeled the pins last week. Jeff fired a huge scratch 770 set in the Monday night Industrial league. Lynn Spellman on the other hand has posted so many big numbers lately we’ve lost count, and he added another last week, a cool scratch 729 series.
Others who beat their average last week included Tim Furlong, who notched a nifty scratch 641 set on three good 200 games. Tim beat his average by 128 pins. Austin Dehart had a fine scratch 650 set which was 119 pins over his average. And painter Randy Nieto’s bold brush strokes produced a scratch 658 series that topped his average by 106 pins. Jay Orand beat his average by 104 sticks. And Terry Arthur authored a nifty scratch 628 set. Terry racked up solid 232 and 227 games in his set. Finally, last but certainly not least, the ebullient Court Barker joined his teammate Levi Phelps in the Fraternal, punching the pins to the tune of a solid scratch 675 series that was 102 pins over his average.
