Striking a Balance: Spotlight shines on youth leagues

Striking a Balance: Spotlight shines on youth leagues

The youth were back on the lanes at Spins Bowl in Kent, with many juniors owning high games and series for the week to lead their teams.

In the Bumper Division, Bryson Horner rolled a high game of 104 on his way to a two-game set of 206 to lead the youngest group of boys. The highest game and series in the league was accomplished by the girls — as Baylee Baldwin tossed a 119 and finished her morning league with a 213 series. Dakota Simon also inched into the top-two bowlers, tossing a 117 high game and a 187 series.

For the Juniors, Brayden Burnett rolled a solid 204 high game and 589 series. The 204 topped Dominic Madden by just four pins for high game. Coco Wijnhoven was the best among the girls in the junior league, rolling a 199 high game and a 529 series.

Among the Special Needs bowlers, Logan Cox (220-356) and Maranda Ailes (160-314) remained at the top of the leaderboard for the week.



It isn’t often that there is only one 300 game bowled in the week, but that was the case at Spins Bowl as David Randazzo found his way to 12 straight strikes in the Garden Spot League. Randazzo completed his league play with a 759 series.

Other top bowlers in the league included Dave Reynolds (280-752), Shannon Jones (248-690) and Stephanie Carden (246-712).

Zach Mangus almost hit the 300 mark in the Woodlands Trio League, bowling a 297 high game and a 725 series.
