Striking a Balance: Madden, Morrison, Simon among youth bowling standouts

Dominic Madden led the Spins Bowls Juniors League, tossing a 200 high game and a 527 high series.

The girls high set was rolled by Emily Morrison, a 179-457.

The youngest bowlers on the lanes are always happy when they find success with a strike, a spare or one of their best games.

That was the case for Dylan Simon who rolled a 102 high game in the Bumper League on his way to a 179 high series.

However, it was the girls taking the spotlight as Delanie Baldwin scored a 115 high game and a 211 series to best the bowlers in the league.

Jarrod Gauntner continues to impress in the Special Needs League. Gauntner rolled a solid 257 high game and a 474 series. Maranda Ailes was the best among the women, 170-297.



Fred Endres has been on fire in the White’s Senior Doubles, near or at the top of the leaderboard each week.

This week was no different, throwing a 235 game and a 692 series.

Tabitha Schlupe was at the top of the women’s leaderboard, 243-693.

In the Perfect Fit Trio League, John Izquierdo rolled a 290 game and an 878 series. Zoe Bevilacqua and Laura Elwood shared top of the leaderboard honors — as Bevilacqua rolled the high game of 225 and Elwood finished with a 667 series.

One 300 game this week, Brian Moreno in the Garden Spot League.

In the Elks and Friends League, Ron Elwood just missed a perfect game by only one pin, topping out with a 299 high game. Kevin Kommel captured high series, a nice 726 with a 267 high game.

In the Mike’s Gals League, Jen Henderson rolled a 223 for high game. Sherry Tauscher was only nine pins behind for second-high game (214), but remained consistent through her three game set for high series, a 598.

John Brown joined the “missed-it-by-one-pin” club, tossing a 299 in the Roofing Guy League, topping out with a 737 series. Neil Martin captured high series with his 740 effort (259 high game).
