White’s Senior Doubles started their league over again, beginning on Jan. 2, with 32 teams for 64 total bowlers. Earning high series among the men was Wade Morrow, a substitute bowler competing with his dad, Don Morrow. The son rolled a 178-684 series. His dad grabbed the third-high-game-series, 246-570.

Sandwiched in between was Mario Laramee 255-605.

For the women, Tabitha Schlupe tossed a 257-699 and Liz Hickman a 201-484.

An unusual occurrence in the league saw Carol Pennock, Barb Reiheld and Lori Dent, all bowling against each other on the same pair, each rolling a 111 game.

Patti Andrews, Pennock’s partner, out-bowled them all, on the same pair, tossing a 144.



Duane Jordan, Tabitha Schlupe and Troy Allison were crowned the first-half champions of the Bill White’s Senior Trio League.

The Senior Trio League concluded their bowling in December and started again in January.

Champions of the second half was “This Team May be Disturbed,” with members Duane Jordan, Tabitha Schlupe and Troy Allison. The team rolled off against the first-half winners, Patti Andrews, Carol Pennock and Corky Farquhar (The Golden Girls).



Cory Daniels rolled a 300 game in the Elks and Friends League, tossing the 12 strikes on his way to a 724 high series and Bradley Woodrum led all bowlers in the Garden Spot League with his 300 high game.



In the Special Needs League, Carly Domres, Maranda Ailes and Logan Cox are often at the top of the leaderboard. All three were among the top bowlers again as the league took the break for the holidays.

When the league returned, Jarrod Gauntner led the league with a 283-423 and Hannah Huber moved into the top spot for the week with her 141-257 effort.

Among the bowlers using bumpers to help them learn to bowl, Dylan Simon rolled a 126-213 and Dakota Simon found her way to a 93-157.

The Spins Bowl Junior League, no bumpers needed here, saw Carter Flachbart rise to the top of the leaderboard as he rolled a 183-480 and CoCo Wijnhoven bowled a 167-476.
