    Let’s face it, last night sucked. I don’t know if it was the weather, geopolitical concerns, not enough relaxing pharmaceuticals partaken of before crossing the state line, or Ron putting the oil machine on the “Torture Pattern” setting as a joke, but it has been years since we’ve seen such an off night all across the board.

    Week 8 – October 17, 2023 (0 COMMENTS)

    Welcome to the midway point of the thrilling Fall 2023 bowling season! Week 8 brought us some fierce competition, with teams rising and falling like pins on the lanes. And while the action was intense, it was the exceptional performances that stole the spotlight. But the biggest twist is likely the first-place lead change at the last moment of the season’s first half!

    In a league where female bowlers outnumber Gideon Bibles remaining in room 426 of the Magnolia Hotel in Omaha, JoAnne Barber emerged as a shining star, effortlessly claiming this week’s high game with a remarkable 137, and a series of 384 for the women. Meanwhile, the men had their own standout performer, as Matthew Taylor blazed a trail with a spectacular high game of 257 and an impressive series total of 639.

    This week every match ended in a sweep (in one case by the thinnest of margins), spreading out the win-loss gaps slightly and causing two teams to trade places in the standings. JoAnne Barber unleashed her inner bowling wizardry to seize this week’s women’s crown from a mob of fierce competitors for that title, capturing the women’s high game at a dazzling 141 and a remarkable series of 389. Meanwhile, on the men’s side, Nick Kinney, like a bowling demigod, left a trail of fallen pins in his wake, claiming this week’s high game with a jaw-dropping 233 and an astonishing series total of 625.

    The fifth week saw one team climb in the standings, while one team slipped but remains above water. One bowler set a new personal best series, and one rolled new personal high game. As many speculated might happen, JoAnne Barber picked up this week’s high game (150) and series (373) for the woman. As for the men, Dustin Schmeltz continued to make his case for Sub of the Season when he snagged this week’s high game with a 230, and high series was earned by Matthew Taylor with a 637.

    Week 4 – September 19, 2023 (0 COMMENTS)

    The fourth week of Fall 2023 brought thunderous applause and roaring excitement to the bowling lanes, with strikes and spares painting the alley in vibrant hues of victory and camaraderie. While some teams soared to new heights, others grappled with the challenge of maintaining their positions. It was a night of personal bests, thrilling showdowns, and unforgettable moments.

    In the realm of fierce competition, JoAnne Barber emerged as the undisputed queen of the evening, leaving everyone in awe with her remarkable performance. With grace and precision, she defied all odds and claimed the crown for the highest game (133) and series (365) among the women bowlers. It wasn’t just a victory; it was a masterclass in bowling finesse that left spectators in awe. And let’s not forget the countless women JoAnne had to out-bowl to secure her titleā€”a true testament to her prowess!

    Speaking of remarkable achievements, Seth Gunderson proved that the lanes were his canvas, and he was the artist creating a masterpiece. With a colossal high game of 242 and an astonishing series of 562, Seth was a force to be reckoned with among the bowlers with 5 appendages. His performance was nothing short of a bowling symphony, leaving the pins trembling in his wake.

    As the lanes sizzled with action, the stage was set for the Tournament of Champions, a thrilling extravaganza that promises 13 weeks of one-on-one bowling battles. It’s a journey that promises to test the mettle of every bowler and leave the spectators (aka Kenny, Joe, Nick, and Ron) on the edge of their seats.

    Apart from a few weeks in 5th place in the first half of Fall 2022, Sun Dolphins have always found themselves stranded on the ocean floor. And they have certainly never had a winning record at any point in their history. But all of that changed last night, when they leapt from the waves and not only got out of dead last, they sailed all the way to second place with a 7-5 record — their first winning record ever!

    Two bowlers set a new personal best series. JoAnne Barber picked up this week’s high game (144) and series (369) for the woman, while Matthew Taylor earned this week’s high game (278) and series (685) for the men. And the Tournament of Champions divisions are now set, ready for one-on-one action to begin next week! Read on for all the rest of the details!

    Last week several bowlers were absent due to either travel or being the odd man out on a team of 5, but after this week everyone has finally set an average. So barring any new random subs, next week everyone will know their game results live.

    This week we saw one bowler set a new personal best series, albeit with a bit of an asterisk as will be explained in a bit. JoAnne Barber miraculously picked up this week’s high game (129) and series (338) for the women. As for the men, Seth Gunderson snagged this week’s high game with a 209, and high series was earned by Matthew Taylor with a 579. Read on for all the rest of the details!
