This past week, Classic Lanes competitors set a house record for the most 700 series shot in a seven day span, including one from the women’s division of the Tuesday Night Mixed League.
In last seven days, the lanes were beat and battered for a whopping 19, 700 scratch series. Looming just outside the 700 realm were Larry Stovall and Darreyl Dixon, both with a 699 scratch set, Mike Gilliland and his 698 series and Mike Fletcher with a 697 during Sunday’s mixed play.
Jason Parmer, taking the uncharacteristically consistent remark a few weeks ago to heart, has put on a show the past few sessions. Thursday night was no exception, producing the overall high set of the week, with his 779 three game scratch series. Parmer lead his team, Walter’s Boys, to three wins with his stellar scores of 269, 221 and 289. With Parmer’s performance Thursday night, he has moved into the eighth position on the high average board, just edging out ninth place by .6 pins with a 214.90 for the season thus far.
Second place for the week was Allan Hague with a 738 scratch set during the Super Bowl Post Bowl league Sunday night. Hague, with a 222 average, posted games of 237, 279 and 222 to help his team into a two way tie for sixth place in the team standings.
Hague’s teammate, Amy Sharp, recorded her fourth career 700 and first in two seasons with a solid 701 three game scratch set. Sharp tossed impressive games of 234 and 277 to reclaim the women’s high average for the Tuesday night mixed league with a 186.
Harold “Robo” McClure bagged the third high set of the week with his 735 scratch series on lanes five and six during men’s action Thursday night. McClure helped his team, Watkins, take two wins on his games of 235, 257 and 243.
Jerry Thompson shot his best set this season with his 728 scratch effort on Tuesday night. Thompson, a veteran bowler on the Tuesday Night Mixed league, booked games of 256, 258 and 214 on his 189 individual average.
Tarry Davison finished just two pins behind Thompson, with a 726 three game scratch set. Davison charted scores of 276, 215 and 235 to help his team, the Underdogs, sweep their opponents for all four possible wins. Davison also booked a 705 scratch set, on lanes five and six, during the Thursday Men’s Commercial league that included games of 257 and 243 on his 229 average.
Teammates Jason Keller and Shayne Wilson could not decide on which man wanted the higher set of the night, so the duo opted to shoot the same score. Keller and Wilson fired matching 727 three game scratch series, on lanes seven and eight during the Men’s Commercial league, to demolish their competitors and claim all four wins. Wilson also knocked down 720 pins during the Super Bowl Post Bowl league leading his team, the Bears, to a three win victory. Keller bagged an additional 708 pins during the Tuesday Night Mixed league and a 704 scratch set during the Sunday Super Bowl Post Bowl League making him the only bowler to fire a 700 series on three different leagues this week.
Cliff Campbell and Kelly Shields shot a pair of 717 three game scratch sets on two different leagues this week. The most interesting part is that the sets were shot while each man was competing with their father, Classic Lanes Hall of Fame Bowler Wes Campbell. Kelly Shields started the week with his father-son collaboration during the Sunday Super Bowl Post Bowl league. Shields tossed game of 267 and 255 helping the team take all four wins.
Following older brothers lead, Campbell fired extraordinary games of 204, 262 and 251 on his 182 average during the Thursday Night Men’s league. Like Shields, Campbell also led his team, Find the Way, to a flawless victory.
Phillip “T.V. Man” Coleman carried his team to a three win victory on his impeccable 714 scratch set. Coleman, who has been in a bit of a slump the last few weeks, resuscitated his game with scores of 247, 221 and 246.
Classic Lanes Hall of Fame Bowler Red Skelton took the opportunity to get in on the action this week firing a solid 708 scratch series on lanes one and two during Sunday’s mixed play. Skelton helped his team, the Saints, to four wins with his games of 227, 203 and 278 on his 190 average.
Justin Haggerty snuck in under the radar Tuesday night with his 706 three game scratch set. Haggerty boosted his team, Hobbit’s Crew, into a two way tie for eighth place in the team standings with his games of 245 and 257.
