We had a couple of Championship Roll-offs this past week. On the Wednesday Nite Ladies League, Family ChiroCare went head-to-head against the M&M gals. Family ChiroCare outlasted the M&M gals to clinch the championship. Their winning team is made up of Cindy and Rachel Rassbach, Lisa Kaiser, Kathy Alleman, Lori Klinger, and Sandy Sanders.

On the Thursday Nite Ladies League, Melby’s beat last year’s champs, Clear Lake Storage. Melby’s team consists of Kathy Samens, Tammi Heutmaker, Amy Edison and Cindy Hurtgen.

On the Sunday Nite Mixed League, The “Young Guns” out-bowled Out-4-Fun to wrap up the Sunday Nite Championship. Young Guns bowlers are Brandon and Trista Engle and Sara and Ryan Woodford.

Congrats to all of the champs!!!

We will feature a few more championship roll-offs this week. I’ll update next week.
