In the leagues
The season is now over for all the winter leagues at Al-Mar Lanes with the year-end tournaments ongoing this week.
The Bagrowski team claimed the league championship of the ASD I Remodeling Tour Trials which is bowled on Professional Bowlers Association and other similar lane patterns over the course of 16 weeks.
Bagrowski defeated Wammes in the final match 8-7 to claim the title. Championship team members were Anita Dilsaver, Chris Bagrowski and Jonathon Myers.
The Wammes team battled the champs all year, but just came up short in the final match. The second place team consisted of Bill Wammes, Mickey Higham and Kyle Waynick.
Third place was taken by the Van De Velde team who topped the Steinman team 8-7 in the runners-up match.
Waynick was the top individual bowler of the season recording the high series, 759, game, 279 and average, 205.56. His teammate Mickey Higham was close behind in all three categories with his 278, 725, and 205.43 average. Yogi Wammes had the high women’s average at 176.56.
Jon Myers won the most individual points for the season with 30.

The annual 9-Pot year-end tournament was held last Friday with Ed Huffman crowned as champion. He records seven nine counts in the first game to easily win that game and parlayed that to a total of 12 to take first place for the most nines in the night.
Susan Harris won the second game with five nine counts; while Cindy and Dennis St. Peter tied for the most nines of the last game and shared the $50 prize awarded to the bowler for the most each game. Huffman’s win was worth $102, allowing him to pocket $152 for the night.
Consolation prizes were awarded for the most strikes each game. That was a $20 award. Dennis St. Peter was among the winners of that all three games. Both he and his wife, were part of a three-way tie each of the first two games and he took that on a solo basis the final game.
We will look at the variety of summer bowling opportunities available, as well as the year-end tournament results for the Bingo, Bracket and Poke season-ending tournament results. The big money was in the Bingo as more than $500 was available for the top bowler on each of the four Bingo cards.
Youth bowlers can still register for Kids Bowl Free to be able to bowl two games at no cost each day during the summer break.
