Bowling: Benge keeps strong year rolling

You can blame Don Granda Jr. on the shortness of this column ... just kidding.

The Lakeside Lanes co-owner went on vacation last week and the establishment’s scores weren’t reported. However, the bowling buzz still needs to go on.

Last week’s top kegler: Rob Benge.

Continuing his stellar season in the Commercial League at Plaza Lanes, the right-hander fired games of 259, 265 and 237 for a 761.

Right-handers Andrew Barnes and Josh Dodson also showcased their skills in the Commercial League.

Barnes banged out games of 268, 247 and 224 for a 739 and hard-cranking Dodson finished with a 290 game for a 714.

At Cochranton Lanes, Bill Kinter was the top roller. The right-hander tossed games of 223, 269 and 234 for a 726.

The Spa League at Lost Lanes featured a couple 700 keglers. Dan Francis fired a 277 game and 713 series and Harry Hanks shot a 707.

High-scoring swingers

Kristy Wolf and Vicki Feltenberger are battling for bragging rights in the Tueday Nite Ladies Swingers League at Plaza Lanes.

Both women topped 600 again.

Wolf threw 247 and 201 games for a 632 and Feltenberger rolled 201 and 209 games for a 603.

Beerbower remains hot

A 600 series is becoming a weekly feat for Seth Beerbower.

The 300 Kid was the top young gun again in the Major League at Plaza Lanes with a 606. His top game was 221.

Scratch tournament

The annual Lost Lanes Thanksgiving Scratch Classic will be held Saturday and Sunday.

The six-game qualifying rounds will be held Saturday at 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. and the top qualifiers will return Sunday for match-play competition.

To enter the tourney, please call Lost Lanes at 398-2265.

Legend injured

At last week’s Hall of Fame banquet, I was informed that Butch Gunsallus — a WCCBA legend and one of my favorite all-time bowlers — fell and suffered a broken hip.

Butchie, I hope your recovery goes as smooth as your legendary bowling skills.

Prayers for Schmitz

I have another bowler on my mind in regards to another non-bowling issue.

Shawn Schmitz — one of the smoothest bowlers you will ever see — and his wife Megan are dealing with a serious personal issue and I want to send my prayers to them.

Stay strong, Shawn and Megan.

    “It’s a good thing we have that little break for Easter,” said Meadville track and field coach Carl Roznowski. “That should give her a chance to rest up those muscles.”

  • Panthers stay unbeaten with win over Blue Devils

    Saegertown’s run to the District 10 boys volleyball championship a year ago was anything but easy.
    Needless to say, the Panthers have a little experience when it comes to dealing with tribulations. The Panthers put that experience to good use on Wednesday night in a Region 1 showdown.

  • MLB replay Selig calls replay start ‘remarkable’

    Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig says the sport’s new replay system is working well despite a few problems during its first two weeks.
    While baseball began video review late in the 2008 season, it was limited to potential home runs and boundary calls. The new system that began March 30 vastly expands the types of plays that managers and umpires can ask to be reviewed at a replay center in New York.

  • Watson pulls away at Augusta to win second green jacket

    One of golf’s most exciting players squeezed most of the drama out of the Masters on Sunday. That’s just fine with Bubba Watson.
    All he cared about was slipping into that green jacket.
    Instead of hitting a 40-yard hook out of a forest of Georgia pines — the signature shot in his playoff victory two years ago — the final act Sunday at Augusta National took place on the 18th green. Watson had a three-shot lead and consulted with his caddie on a 15-foot birdie putt.
