Season 44: MidSummer 2021

Here is your Summer 2021 Recap, where you can find out who won all the individual awards that we didn't collect prize money for but they still at least matter for bragging rights!

Unlike the too-close-to-call-early Spring season, this time around the championship was practically decided by week 7 and pretty much sealed after the first game of week 8. Unnamed Team 1 came away with an unnecessary clean sweep (despite making every effort to throw the third game) to claim the title by a wide margin.

SEASON INDIVIDUAL AWARDS:

Women's High Series Scratch: JoAnne Barber (433)

Women's High Game Scratch: Lindsey Campbell (195)

Women's High Series Handicap: LaReash Bridges (602)

Women's High Game Handicap: JoAnne Barber (220), LaReash Bridges (218), Lindsey Campbell (198)

Men's High Series Scratch: Dennis Walling (624)

Men's High Game Scratch: AJ Hofmann (229)

Men's High Series Handicap: Dustin Schmeltz (653)

Men's High Game Handicap: Ben Spencer (244)

Dennis Walling is #1 Power ranked bowler, Aaron Barber is runner up.

Unnamed Team 1 is #1 Power ranked team, Unnamed Team 2 is runner up.

Head to Head: Dennis Walling would have won 61.695% of all possible one-on-one matchups this season, Aaron Barber comes in second with 58.475%.

The ultra-miniaturized Tournament of Champions was won by Brandon Martinez, with Michael Gordon as runner-up.

Since we did not have Fun Week this season, we opted to once again skip the People's Choice Awards.

  1. Unnamed Team 1: Dennis Walling
  2. Unnamed Team 2: Aaron Barber
  3. AJ's Fault 2: Pull Jeremy's Finger: Scott Murdock

  FROM THE GUTTER (QUOTE OF THE SEASON)

"Since the new bowling alley doesn't have electronic scoring, I'm developing our own electronic scoring system that will debut the first week this Fall. It will be great! I'll do test runs of it the last two weeks of this summer."

Scott Murdock, making a bold promise, before not only failing to have anything ready for testing before the summer season ended, has completed only two of roughly 65 functions needed with just over 2 weeks left before bowling starts.
