Wilson’s lofty set, the first 800 series of the season for the local center, came in the Thursday Men’s Commercial league on Feb. 26, while Pullen rolled his big game on Feb. 22 in Sunday Night Mixed action.
Wilson, bowling with the King Pins team on lanes 13-14, opened with a 267 game, followed that with a 256 and then rolled a 279 in the final game for an 802 series, an average of 267.33 pins per game. Wilson went into the night’s set with the top average for the season at Classic Lanes, toting a lofty 232. The 802 put Wilson in sole possession of high scratch series for the year in the league, breaking the 798 mark he shared with Jason Keller and Steve Edwards.
Pullen, a student at Sulphur Springs High School who came through the junior bowling program at the center, shot his honor score game at the other end of the house, lanes 1-2, in the first league of the week.
Averaging 188 at the beginning of play in the Sunday Night Mixed, Pullen rolled 198 and 216 games before firing 11 strikes in a row to open the third game. On his final ball and facing the prospect of a perfect game, he was a couple of boards off the pocket, got no help from the kickbacks, and left three pins standing.
Pullen’s big game boosted him to a 711 series for the night, the third 700 or better of his bowling career. The 297 should qualify him for a national award from USBC and possibly an award from the Dallas Bowling Association, the affiliated local governing body for men at Classic Lanes.
The two weren’t the only bowlers who did well during the week. Other notable scores, by league, included:
