This week an underdog, so to speak, quietly captured the league’s high handicap set for the season thus far and the fifth highest scratch set of the season.  Mark Miller led his team, the Haggertys, to four magnificent wins with his 750 scratch series, 903 with his 153 pins of individual handicap.
    Competing on a 173 average, Miller boasted scores of 266, 239 and 245 to complete the night a phenomenal 231 pins above his average for series, the most of an individual this season.  Miller’s dedication to the sport and unrelenting motivation to always find ways to improve paid off Thursday night.
