Truman rolls 15th career 300

This week, we start with league bowling news including a 300 game by Matt Truman in the Elk’s League last Tuesday. He ended with a 770 for the high series for the week. Kyle Waynick shot 277 for 725. Bill Wammes had a 254  for a 700 and Randy Wells Jr. had a 257 for 639. Gary Wachter also shot a 639. For the women, Mallory Fritz was high with her 213 for 610 and Yogi Wammes had a 200 for 557. Kristen Knell shot a 201 game.

Wood County Insurance and Rosenboom are the division leaders.


Surviving the game

The five people eliminated in Week 20 in the Surviving the game are Al Seifert. Elks league. 96 pins under average; Ron Golightley, American, -80; Becky Schultze, Ladies Major,- 60; Susan Harris, Elks, -20; and Paul Overhulse, American, -30. The season long event is now down to the top 25, who will all cash.


In the pros:

In a bizarre twist, the original winner for the Brunswick Euro Challenge was named as Anthony Simonson. However, tournament officials did not add in the handicap (yes, handicap for a professional tournament) as women were given eight pins handicap per game and thus Sweden’s Jenny Wegner was the actual winner of the PBA World Tour event. She thus earned $14,150 in the event held in Munich, Germany.
