Season 28: Fall 2013

Truth be told, this was an odd season as compared to our last one. There weren't any really incredible games this time around. Hardly any big series were thrown. No one went on a lengthy win streak tear nor did anyone shatter any long-standing records (well, no positive ones anyway).

The following are bowlers that shot their all-time bests:

Highest game?
Bryan Mohr, Chadwick Andrews, Dennis Blake, Eric Lynch, Kody Karnes, and Matt Bunyard

Highest series?
Bryan Mohr, Chadwick Andrews, Matt Bunyard

Highest season-ending average?
Seth Gunderson, Greg Middleton, Jonathan Vigliaturo, Sarah Lynch, Anita Osthoff, Dennis Blake, Matt Bunyard, Bryan Mohr

We looked and looked for any great new additions to the Top 25 lists but could only find one golden nugget across all of them with their season-ending averages, Hall of Famer Seth Gunderson has moved up to be the 22nd best bowler of all time while Dennis Blake debuts on the list in the 24th spot.

The biggest individual achievements for the season came out as follows:

Angela Bradford Women's High Series Scratch = Angela Bradford (572)
Freda Schroeder Women's High Game Scratch = Anita Osthoff (210)
Women's High Series Handicap = Freda Schroeder (687)

Men's High Game Handicap = Dennis Blake (273)
Men's Pins Over Average = Ryan Doll (+98)

Dave Winger announced his retirement from the league so a special award was created for a league staple that has been a part of GutterAlley for 12 seasons (8 as a regular member, 4 as a sub). Going forward, one bowler from the league's past will be chosen by the Hall of Famers to be the recipient of the Dave Winger "Gone But Not Forgotten" Award. Naturally, Winger was the first recipient of the award bearing his name.

And lastly, Pat Searcy was officially inducted into the GutterAlley Hall of Fame after being selected over Bill Krejci, Cory Chorpenning, Demond Robinson, Jason Carpio, and Ryan Doll by the voters of the bowling community.

Congratulations to all of the winners this season!
