Cruising into the second slot
was Scott Helberg and Andy Phillips.
Scott was a bit over his 220 incoming average with games of
247-238-193 for a 678 series. Partner Andy did the heavy lifting with games of 299-248-233
for an event leading 780 scratch series.
Very nice, and good for a 1458 team series.
The best thing about the
Singles/Doubles Event is that after three games, everyone gets a fresh
start. Jeff Lesinski came out
smoking. After an initial 257
game, Jeff turned it up a notch with a follow-up 266 number.
In game three our singles leader struck on the first 10 shots.
A pesky 10 pin kept Jeff from attaining further glory but did,
however, give him a nice 288 finale.
Ho-hum… just another 800 series for Jeff this year.
His 811 series is Jeff’s third of this season and career.
Add 15 pins for handicap purposes and there sits our singles leader
at 826. Wow.
To give you an idea of the feat,
second place in singles is Tom Hoeffel with a 745 handicap score.
The 80 pin difference from first to second is the largest I’ve
ever seen in this event. Third
place is currently held by Tom’s doubles partner Dan Hall with a 744
Congratulations are in order for
Mr. Tracy Busch. Tracy shot
what I believe to be his third career 300 two weeks ago in the Hays City
League Thursday night. After
opening games of 213-235, Tracy found the groove and splattered 12 of them
in game three. Congrats,
