Donna Soeder and Amber Burnett each reached the 600-plus mark to highlight women’s scoring, and Donald Davis stroked his first sanctioned 300 game in his first appearance at Classic Lanes. Burnett hit her first six in the Sunday Night Mixed, while Soeder cracked that mark in the Tuesday Night Mixed. Davis fired his perfect game in the Thursday Men’s Commercial League.
Soeder almost bypassed the 600 series honor in favor of a 700. She ripped games of 214-245-212 for a 671 to post the high scratch women’s series of the week. With her handicap added, she took the lead in the chase for high handicap game and series at 284 and 788.
Soeder, a smooth-stroking right-hander with a textbook approach and follow-through, entered the night’s play with a 161 average for the Magic Markers team on lanes 3-4. Those of us who have watched her bowl over the course of the season were a bit surprised that it was her first 600-plus career score – but she made it a lofty one in the process.
Burnett started the week’s scoring with her initial 600, a 608, after breaking out a new bowling ball in the Sunday league on March 22.
Shooting with the Git-R-Done squad, the down-and-in stroking right-hander hammered the pins on games of 182-243-183 for her 608. Adding her handicap off a 156 average, she scored a 713 series and 278 game, tops for women bowlers for the night. Chances are she’ll keep that ball for a while. And her series also came on lanes 3-4.
Davis, who carried a 198 book average last season, got his breakthrough 300 in his initial Classic Lanes venture. The southpaw, bowling with The Storm squad on lanes 11-12, opened his set with a pair of 205 games before slamming all 12 shots in game three for the perfect game for a 710 series. He admitted later to being a bit nervous, understandably, on shots 11 and 12, but pulled off solid pocket hits to finish out the set.
Davis joined David Strain, Joe Freeman and Shayne Wilson in the perfect game listings at the local bowling center this season.
Other bowlers also put impressive numbers on the board during the week. Those included, by league:
