Junior bowlers in spotlight
Obviously, our junior bowlers are continuing to develop their skills with the scores they posted last week.
Aaron Littlefield led the way by firing the second perfect game for juniors this season, this one at Recreation Lanes.
The week's hot bowling continued at Stewartville Lanes when Jamie Briggs put together games of 265, 257 and 247 for a whopping 767 series, an incredible 206 pins over his 187 average.
Brad Dauck was not far behind with games of 247 and 227 as part of a 663 series. That was 198 over his average of 155.
In men's play, Dave Gosha added his name to the record number of perfect games at Recreration. Brian Floen picked up his second 300 of the year, this time at Colonial. His previous one was at Byron.
Just missing was Mark Moehnke with a 299 at Recreation.
