Rockpile – 4-4-2018

Several leagues finished either the 4th quarter or 2nd half competition this week.

On the Wednesday Afternoon League, the Hair Depot won the second half and will go head-to-head with my Leaker’s team for the championship this coming Wednesday afternoon.

On the Wednesday Nite Ladies League, Family ChiroCare clinched the second half and will be rolling off against the M&M gals on Wednesday night.

Meanwhile on the Saturday Nite Live Mixed Doubles league, the “Standaerts” team took second half honors and will face the Wink-Mrdutt team for the championship.

On the Thursday Senior League, there are only four points separating the top three teams. With only one more week to go, it should be an exciting last day of bowling on the Senior circuit!!! Global Genetics, Leaker’s Place and Thrivent are the top three team!! I’ll update some of the results next week.

Cory Leavitt put up another 700 last week with a 714, and finally Jolene Hurtgen rolled her first ever “600” series with a 601. Great job, keglers!!
