Season 29: Spring 2014

With the title already in the bag, Pinterest didn't even have to show up but ended their season with a fitting 4-0 sweeping of opponents The Finger Holes to end their season 9.5 games ahead of the rest of the league. The victories improved Pinterest's record to 47.5-16.5, the 6th best in league history. Andy McLeod led the champs with a 529 series while The F-Holes had the biggest output from Phil Schroeder, who ended his season with a 478 series. The Finger Holes end up in 2nd place with a 38-26 record.

On lanes 43 & 44, Bowltron put an exclamation mark on the end of their season with the biggest beat down of the night. Led by Bill Krejci's #1 Power Ranked bowler output of 668 and this week's Most Valuable Bowler performance out of Bryan Mohr, the guys did not let opponents Schwetty Balls breathe en route to a clean 4-0 sweep. Bob Brunker put up the highest series for Schwetty with his 534 series but it wasn't enough to earn a notch in the win column. Bowltron ends the season as the only team that moved up in the league standings in the Finals, hopping over their opponents to move into 3rd place with their 36-28 record. Schwetty Balls, on the other hand, dropped to 4th place after ending their season at 35-29.

The last time Twerking Balls took on Mark It Zero, they came away with three wins. Some things never change. After dropping Game #1, the Twerkers bounced back to win the matchup 3-1 behind Teresa Deterding's team-leading 443 series. A pre-bowling Kody Karnes led the Zeroes with a 620 series to end his season as the 2nd best bowler in league history with his 214 average. Despite the losses (and the all-time worst Finals performance compliments of Ken), Mark It Zero manages to hold onto 4th place with their 32-32 record. The Twerking Balls end their season in 5th place with a record of 25.5-38.5.

The 7th and 8th place teams battled one another to a standstill in the final matchup of the evening. With sub Todd Way leading Split It & Hit It with his 371 series, the guys managed to take Games #1 and #2. It wasn't until Game #3 that UpgrayeDD showed signs of life as Josh Robison and his 438 series helped to reverse the run and not only take the final game but total pins as well for the 2-2 split. Neither team budged, however, in the standings with Split It & Hit It ended their season in 7th with their 22.5-41.5 record while UpgrayeDD finishes in 8th place with a record of 19.5-44.5.

The Tournament of Champions came down to final battle between opponents Michael Gordon and last season's ToC second place finisher, Ryan Doll. Gordon emerged victorious by a margin of five pins with an 196-191 outcome and will receive the lion's share of the tournament's prize fund. Congrats, Michael!

Bowlers ending the Spring 2014 season with a visit to The 200 Club include: Bill Krejci (223, 267), Bob Brunker (200), Kody Karnes (202, 216, 202), Ryan Doll (214, 225), and Scott Murdock (200).

Next week is our league's traditional Fun Night, an evening of 9-pin tap bowling (knock down nine pins and it counts as a strike) that starts off with our awards ceremony and prize money disbursement.

Winners of the individual achievements that net additional money in their prize envelopes this season include:

Angela Bradford Women's High Series Scratch = Angela Bradford (564)
Freda Schroeder Women's High Game Scratch = Freda Schroeder (213)

Due to lack of voter participation, no one will be inducted into the Hall of Fame this season. We hope to retool the process over the summer for a return in the fall session.

See you next Tuesday!
