White’s Senior Doubles League had something to celebrate during Halloween week as bowlers have been throwing outstanding games and series.

Betsy Mako and Marie Canan

Fred Endres rolled a 300 game and finished with a 748 series to lead the league. Jack Steel rolled a 269 and Dave Senerchia, subbing in the league, had a 245-686 series.

Mark Horning improved his average 181 for series when he rolled a 58 with a high game of 201.

Betsy Mako rolled a 193 high game on her way to a 495 series as Tabitha Schlupe rolled the high series of the day, a 543. Schlupe carries a 224 average inn the league.

Schlupe has been impressive, rolling a 743 series in the third week and a high game of 278 in the fifth week.

Sue Koerber rolled a nice 521 series that was 119 pins over her average of 134.


In the Perfect Fit Trio, Joey Hardin tossed a 300 game on his way to a 985 series. Keith Lang, former manager of Spins Bowl in Kent, bowled a 1,019 series to top the league with a 274 high game.

Robin Wise and Jim May

Lisa Osborne was the best in the Perfect Fit Trio for the women, rolling a 253-943.

If watching a 300 game is exciting, the Garden Spot League members had double the fun. Both Brian Moreno and Ryan Ambler accomplished the perfect game during league bowling. Moreno finished with a 751 series and Ambler earned runner-up series with his final 767.

Despite the perfect games, neither bowler could inch their way up the leaderboard to top Patrick Adolph for high series. Adolph rolled a 779 series with a 279 high game.

Aleks Kiss rolled a solid 250 game to lead the women in the league and Julie Saxton found her name at the top of the high-series leaderboard with her 642.

Finally, Corey Daniels ended the 300 game party in the Elks and Friends League with his perfect game, also taking home high series, a 722.
