Louis Lufkin made his way back to Classic Lanes this summer season after an extended stint away from the sport.
Lufkin has been taking advantage of Classic Lanes extended hours this summer to practice at least twice a week. Lufkin’s persistence paid off Thursday night during the Men’s Trio league, leading his team to three wins on his 924 four game scratch series.
Starting the night with a 193 for the first game, Lufkin walked off the approach, took a deep breath, and regrouped to follow up with a perfect 300 for the second game of the set. Lufkin added scores of 220 and 211 to complete the session 152 pins above his average for series. Congratulations Mr. Lufkin from the Classic Lanes staff, management and the entire participating league body on one of bowling’s most coveted achievements. We all look forward to many more to come.
Sunday Night Mixed
Smuckers & Company overpowered their competition Sunday night with a combined 2511 scratch series. Every member of the team managed to post scores in each game that was above their individual averages, a very rare feat for any team to accomplish.

Donna Soeder nabbed 588 total pins on games of 191, 213 and 184, with Soeder’s 213 during the second game of the evening taking the women’s high game of the night honors. Chuck Russell climbed out of his rut this week knocking down 659 on two solid games of 232 and 229. Anchorman David Soeder, lead the team with his near 700 set, a 693 three game scratch series. David charted a pair of 234 games and a 225 to complete the night 48 pins above his average for series. The team closed the match with all four possible wins and a two way tie for first place in the team standings.
Husband and wife duo, Kelly and Carrie Shields, led their team, Wack, to an undefeated session during Sunday’s mixed play with their 649 and 529 sets. Carrie, competing on a 161 average, tossed games of 184 and 190, while Kelly rolled games of 205, 212 and 232 on his 194 average.

The pair was able to stay in a two way tie with Smuckers & Company for first place in the team standings with an 11 and 1 record thus far in the second half of the summer season.
Monday Night Trio
Jason Parmer led the men this week with his 722 three game scratch set during Monday’s trio action. With what looked to be a rocky start, shooting 189 on his 210 average for the first game of the match, Parmer settled back down and was able to finesse the ball out on the lanes for the remaining games of the night compiling two impressive scores of 266 and 267.
Tarry Davison was first runner-up of the night for the men’s category with his 718 three game scratch series. Davison, who has been struggling as of late, nailed an awesome 268 during the second game of the night.
Pam Parmer led her team, the Three P’s, to victory with her outstanding 569 scratch set on lanes one and two. Parmer improved with each game of the night firing scores of 157, 165 and a whopping 247 the end the session and take three of the four wins up for grabs.
Tuesday Night Doubles
Betty Russell wasted no time Tuesday night, getting right to business on lanes five and six. Russell, paired with David VanSickle, just happened to draw her husband, Chuck Russell, and Tina Phillips as opponents for the evening. Russell, who has been on a hot streak the last couple of weeks, kept her momentum going this Tuesday night rolling games of 246, 214 and 187 for a 647 scratch set on her 186 average. VanSickle, noticing very early in the night that he needed his “A” game, bagged scores of 244 and 247 in a 674 three game scratch set. Chuck and Phillips were able to fill in as pacers to keep the routine in check for the night. Chuck threatened to have Russell walk home after getting schooled all night. I think we all know how that might have played out though. Better luck next time Mr. Russell.
Jim Galloway unloaded on his competition for Tuesday’s bout, firing an above par 607 three game scratch set. Galloway, with a 186 average, bowled games of 221 and 202 to help his team, Double Trouble, take three wins for the evening.

Donnie Wooten, returning to the sport this summer after several seasons off due to a back injury, charted notable games of 194, 212, 152 and 159 on his 147 average. Wooten, leadoff bowler for D.D.T., concluded the match 129 pins above his average for series and helped the team take four wins and climb in to a two way tie for third place in the team standings.
