In the Zone: Senior bowlers shine
The competitors were Don and Naomi Agee, Willis Webb and Doris Oliver. In addition to being member of senior leagues at the NRV SuperBowl, they are also members of the Senior Athletes of Montgomery County.
In singles competition, Oliver and Webb each won silver medals. The mixed doubles teams of Webb and Oliver, along with the Agee husband and wife duo, grabbed silver medals in their respective age divisions.
Oliver and Webb also received medals in the mixed doubles category as they wrapped up the competition with a bronze medal.
This year’s qualification events were for the 2013 National Senior Games, which will be held in Cleveland, Ohio.
On May 15, the Tuesday Summer League completed week three of the season. Merica Usa was the high scratch bowler among the men with his 243 game. He was joined by Carl Bishop, Hunger Wiley, and Jerry Linkous for top honors.
Brittney Sulloway paced the women with her 222 game and 618 series. She was joined by a daughter and mother team for high games: Nicole Foutz and Kim DeLap rounded out the high trio of scores.
Brittney’s husband Tim has the high game of the season in the league with his 250 score. Carl Bishop has the high season three game series while Brittney’s game and series is the top mark in the early stages of the summer session.
The Oldies 2012 Senior Summer League, which competes on Thursday afternoons, began their season with Bill Clarkson, Brian Atkinson, Don Strock, Terry Hale and Jug Donathan setting the pace for the initial week of the season.
Alice Wrenn had the high game among the women. Judy Dowdy, who continues to show up on the leaderboard in senior competition, had the high series. Wrenn and Dowdy were joined by Scottie Smith, Pam Thurman, Phyllis Clarkson, and JoAnn Britt as the league got off to a strong season lidlifter.
Of the favorite leagues every year in the now underway summer session is the Crazy 8 League. Buck Wrenn has bounced back nicely from some previous back issues as the had the high game with a 270. Don Compton, Oliver Edwards and Brian Atkinson all took advantage of the unique format to record some high scores.
Peggy Rasnick paced the women with her 276 game. Gerri Mohler, who had the high series with a 688 edged Barbara Hundley-Sowers in both high game and high series categories.
After a two week break, the SuperBowl will be hosting the next round of the Virginia State Open Tournament this weekend. The early stages of the event have seen many local bowlers at the top of the leaderboard. After the tournament is completed, I will have a wrap-up of the success stories coming out of the NRV.
This summer, my plan is to have the column every two weeks. I look forward to bringing you information about the best of the best in bowling in our area.
Until next time, good bowling to everyone!!
