Shannon Hague’s 640 in the Sunday Night Mixed league led the women’s scoring for the week ending March 5, while Dave Gholson’s solid 762 in the Tuesday Night Mixed set the standard for men.
Hague rolled her 640 in March 1 play, opening with a 254 game and adding 192 and 194. Gholson strung games of 266-253-243 for his 762 on March 3. Both bowlers are right-handers, play down-and-in shots and rely on accuracy more than power to get the ball to the pocket. From there, it’s just a matter of carry.
Gholson’s set was one of bowling’s more difficult feats, a clean series – no open frames in the three games – and included two split conversions.
Several other bowlers scored well during the week, with six 700s on the recap sheets among the men and a few 600s by the women. Noteworthy scores included, by league:
