Jason followed this set with a 712 in Thursday night’s competition, shooting games of 248, 223 and 241. His 700 count for the year is now 18, and he has one of the center’s seven 800 honor scores, an 823. He holds third place on the high series chart. Mr. K. is averaging 244, second only to Steve Merten’s 276, best in the center, and he is one of nine individuals who have collected a perfect game this season. Actually, he has three perfect games and a 298. Jason averaged 248 for the week.
Tarry Davison collected his 35th 700 since league play began way back in August. He is our leader in this category. His best set is a 792, which places him in seventh place on the high series chart. But the big story for Tarry this week was the 300 game he posted in game one Sunday night. I have been giving Tarry grief about his needing a 300 and an 800 before league play ends in May. Well, he has one of the two, now, and he can brag the he is one of nine men to shoot a perfect game this year. Davison ranks 4th on the high average board with a 231.
Harold McClure finished the week in third place tossing a 747 on Tuesday night. Harold rolled games of 235, 245 and 267. Harold, who chases bad guys for a profession, is tied with David Gholson, David Strain, and Vincent Smith for 12th place on the high average board, is one of those nine fellas who have collected a perfect game this season, and has now booked 13 700s, the best being a 775. He holds claim to eighth place on the high series chart. Harold shot a 636 on Sunday.
James Allen finished 18 pins behind Harold this week, finishing fourth on our 700 list. Allen shot games of 235, 253 and 241 on Thursday night, completing the evening with a 729. James ranks ninth on the high average board, where he joins Mike Fletcher. He is also one of those guys who have tossed a perfect game this year. Allen also gets to claim that he is one of those six men who have hit an 800 honor score this season, an 817, and he has tossed 18 700s. His 847 ranks fourth on the high series chart.
Kenny Turner and Anthony Sweat both posted 714s this week. Sweat’s came on Sunday night, Kenny’s occurred on Thursday. Anthony rolled games 221, 268 and 225, while Kenny fired games of 239, 230 and 245. Anthony was averaging 213 when play began on Sunday, which means he finished the night 75 pins over his series average, while Kenny was averaging 188 when play began on Thursday, which means he finished the evening 150 pins over his series average of 564. If my information is correct, this week’s series is Kenny’s first 700 of the year.
Sweat ranks 6th on the high average board with a 222, is one of the nine people who have tossed a perfect game, and is 12th on the high series chart with a 770. He has collected 16 700s this season.
