     Justin Parmer’s timing couldn’t have been better – on the calendar, the schedule and the lanes as 2013 moved toward its close.


    It was the last Sunday of the year, second quarter position round in the Super Bowl league at Classic Lanes, when bowling center manager Parmer rolled his career-first 300 game to pace his Saints-Steelers team to a three-game, four-point sweep and quarter title Dec. 29 on lanes 1-2.
     Parmer entered the night’s action with a 190 average and opened his set with a 199.  Then in game two, he made an adjustment with his release, started with the front 11 strikes and hammered the pocket on ball number 12 to put 10 in the pit for the perfect game.  Parmer didn’t lose much of his stroke in game three, closing with a 225 for a 724 series.
    He had some help along the way from teammates Debbie Miller, Mark Miller and Chuck Russell.  Debbie Miller ripped a 196-191-226 for 613, tying the high series score of the week for women in the center’s league play.  Her husband, Mark, rolled a 242 in the opening game, and Russell added a 210 in game two.  The team carded an almost unreal record of 21 wins against just 3 losses for the quarter.
    Their opponents, the Dolphins-49ers, scored well – just not good enough to overcome Parmer and company’s big set.  Allan Hague posed a 238 game, David Strain shot 225 and 221 games in a 646 set and Amy Sharp matched Debbie Miller’s 613 on games of 205-195-213.
    Parmer’s 300 stood as high game for the week’s league action, but Justin Haggerty’s 771 in the Thursday Men’s Commercial league took high set honors for the week ending Jan. 2.  Mike Fletcher fired a 770 and Corey Ogle hit 762 in other leagues to round out the top three series scores.
    Shannon Hague, bowling the Monday Trio on Dec. 30, rolled a 227 – one stick better than Debbie Miller’s score – for women’s high scratch game honors for the week, and finished the night’s play with a 601 series.
     Haggerty’s solid 771 came on lanes 5-6 of the Thursday Men’s Commercial as he opened with a pair of 268 games and closed with a 235. Fletcher fired a 244-279-247 block for the 770 on lanes 7-8 in Sunday’s Super Bowl action.
     In the Thursday Men’s Commercial league, Juan Peralta continued his high-scoring tear with a 201-233-189 block for 623 on his 176 average, and Classic Lanes and Dallas Bowling Association Hall of Famer Wes Campbell added games of 211 and 232 to pace the Find the Way team to a tie for first place with Harrison’s Crew and set the stage for the second-quarter showdown in this week’s position round.  Peralta currently leads the most-improved average race with an increase of 28.3 pins, and has helped carry his team for several weeks.
     While Parmer’s first-ever sanctioned 300 highlighted the week, several other bowlers posted admirable scores during league play.  Those efforts, by league, included:
