Rockpile – 3-12-2014

This week we’ll take a look at a few leagues to see who are the top averages in their leagues. We’ll start on the Men’s Hometown League. Doug Standaert and cousin Brent Standaert each carry a 205 average. They’re trying to stay ahead of Dave Brandt and Bill Standaert who hold averages of 203 and 201, respectively.

On the Town and Country League, Bill Casey is top dog with a 191 average while Jim Ross and Jason Maes are right behind him with a 189 average. On the Thursday Senior League, Joe Walz is out in front with a 187 average. Next in line is Rich Holmen.

On the Wednesday Afternoon League Joe Goebel is top of the men with a 169 average. Rosie Kohler is leading the women with a 154 average.

We’ll take a look at some other leagues next week!!
