Mike Unger was zoned in Thursday night to string together a barrage of strikes during Sundowner League action to earn the high scoring honors for the week. He posted individual games of 269, 261 and 228 for a great series of 758, which is a top career high.
T.J. Mooney also broke the 700 mark in the same league with games of 246, 257 and 232 contributing towards a 735 total.
Other men bowlers breaking the 250-650 mark were Miles Michalec leading the Sugar & Spice League with a 675, Bruce Hammack (673), Joey Matson (264-667), Steve Dickinson( 259-663), Tamarcus Bennett (278-660), Lindy Conner (656) and Eric Smith (256).
Lori Hammack also posted one of her better scores for the year with individual games of 204, 243 and 220 contributing toward a 667 total during Sundowner League action. It looks like bowlers are stepping up their games for the upcoming city tournaments. Happy to see Lori made the big girls column again.
Lisa Williams bowling in the same league rolled a nice 222 high game, which helped toward a 577 set and second high.
