Crock gives Plaza Lanes first 300 game

MEADVILLE — Mike Crock — who has a few 300 games in his career — became the first kegler this season to go the distance at Plaza Lanes recently.

Bowling in the Commercial League, the hard-cranking, right-handed Crock opened with his gem and followed with 185 and 208 games for a 693 series.

Congrats, Mike!

Cochranton crusher

When Ryan Williams gets it rolling, the right-hander is tough to beat.

Case-in-point: In the Pioneer League at Cochranton Lanes, Williams shot games of 269, 269 and 244 for a whopping 782 series.

In other Pioneer League action, Tyler Barnes tossed 279 and 244 games for a 723.

Stallard sizzling

My long-time buddy Brian Stallard was in the groove in the Twilight League at Plaza Lanes.

The right-hander rolled games of 244, 278 and 237 for a 759.

A few other keglers also topped 700 at Plaza: Rodrick Baird (715 in Plaza Men’s League), Rob Benge (714 in Commercial League), Brandon Wachob (710 in Commercial League), Jim Hunter (706 in Twilight League) and Josh Dodson (700 in Commercial League).

Granda edges Eaton

The top Lakeside bowler? Who else? Don Granda Jr.


Granda Jr. banged out games of 236, 257 and 258 for a 751 in the NFL League — narrowly beating Don Eaton, who fired games of 255, 244 and 248 for a 747 in the Wednesday Nighters League.

Steven King and Ryan Park also excelled at Lakeside with 739 and 734 totals, respectively, in the NFL League and Stewart’s Classic League.

Other 700s at LL: Doug Dunham (714 in Wednesday Nighters League), Chad Beers (711 in Stewart’s Classic League) and Rich Ashe (700 in NFL League).

Hanks & Co.

Natalie Hanks, Stacey Dodson, Kristy Wolf, Kim Eastman and Nancy Hanks — five women I would take on my team in a heartbeat.

They were special recently ... all 600 rollers.

Natalie Hanks: 215, 246 and 223 games for a 684 in the Found Lounge Mixed League at Lost Lanes.

Dodson: 237 and 246 games for a 666 in the Found Lounge Scratch League at Lost Lanes.

A South Carolina woman was arrested recently after the McDonald’s employee let her daughter spend the day playing in a nearby park while she worked her shift. The decision has created a debate over “free-range” parenting and whether it’s a good idea or not. What’s your take?

This is horrible and very bad parenting.
