BAJA Bowling

 Terry Clayton makes a strike. 

With the BAJA Senior bowling winding down its Summer League, teams are gearing up for position round in three weeks. The higher a team ends up in the standings, the more rewards for the bowlers. So everyone is doing their best to end as high as they can. The Sweet Rollers were soured by the Baja Buddies, and they rolled down the gutter to drop from third place to eighth, being the only team to lose all nine points. The Lucky Strikers were one point from first to start the night, but they went on to win 7 and overtook Damage Control for sole possession of first place.

Bob Clayton rolled a 670 Handicap Series to out distance Randy George’s 627, while Gary Peelman’s Handicap Game of 247 was tops in that category. Tim Cottos managed a 562 Scratch Series and Paul Barnhart rolled a very sweet 199 to land at the top of the heap for Scratch Game.

Terry Clayton’s 655 led the way for a win in Handicap Series over Nancy Gibbs and Lezlie Lang, but Joy Johnson and Darlene Green tied for Handicap Game with a 241. Scratch Series went to Jill Popejoy as she rolled a great 447, and always steady Cathy Yearout won Scratch Game with a 167
