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.

Wolf: 277 game and 646 in the Tuesday Nite Swingers League at Plaza Lanes.

Eastman: 235 game and 633 in the Tuesday Nite Ladies League at Lakeside Lanes.

Nancy Hanks: 234 game and 628 in the Found Lounge Scratch League.

  • 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.
