The Rockpile – 5-7-2014

We had the “Battle of the Sexes” roll-off last week, which brought together the “cream of the crop” mens and ladies teams. “Angie’s Amazing Portraits” who were the overall womens champs took on the men’s big guns.

“Angie’s” won by a commanding 87 pins. This team was made up of Karla Obermueller, Jill Peterson, Doralla Curvello, Tracy Lawson and Ione DeSmith. Congratulations ladies!! (by the way Tracy Lawson rolled her first-ever 600 series by chalking up a nice 612 series).

Jordan Wink also tossed his first-ever 200 game with a 202 while bowling with Leaker’s II. Leaker’s II were the top dogs of all the men’s leagues to take the mens’ city championship.

We’ll have our 9-pin tap roll-off this coming Saturday night. There are the 5 people who will be battling it our of the $1,000 first place purse. These five are Bob Schug, Jon Standaert, Dave Hurtgen, Luke Berends and Tim Pederson. Action starts at 7:00 p.m. Come and cheer for your favorite bowler.

REMINDER TO ALL BOWLERS: Please clear out equipment from your lockers as we need to move lockers in the next couple weeks to put in new carpet. Thanks – Leaker & Cheryl.
