    Week 12 – May 18, 2021 (0 COMMENTS)

    With the sudden sale and closure of AMF Pro Bowl Lanes just three days before our final session of bowling, we were unsure if we’d be able to finish things up properly or just call it where we stood. Luckily for the team that ended up securing the championship last night, Gladstone Bowl helped us out by offering us four lanes to use so we could finish our season! It wasn’t ideal squeezing 6 teams onto 4 lanes and maybe wasn’t technically legal by USBC standards since the 3rd & 4th place teams bowled on separate sets of lanes, but thanks to Gladstone’s help we were able to make the best of a bad situation. And with the top 4 teams all having a realistic shot at the title, it was a championship worth fighting for!

    JoAnne Barber picked up this week’s high game (146) and series (413) for the woman, while, Aaron Barber snagged this week’s high game for the men with a 225, and men’s high series was earned by Matthew Taylor with a 607.
