Hall, Silgero shine in weekly bowling
Larry Hall and Jacob Silgero were bright beacons in last week's full slate of the new bowling season.
Hall started the Sugar and Spice League season like a comet, with great games of 268 and 277 before cooling down to finish with a 213 final game.
In the first two games, he rolled 19 out of a possible 24 strikes, to showcase his dominance.
The three games netted Hall an outstanding 758 series, which earned him the high series honors for the week.
Silgero, in only his third year of adult league bowling, was very impressive in three leagues that he bowled in.
In the Sugar & Spice League, he posted a 277 high game on his way to a 667 set.
The next night in Sundowner competition, he started the first game with a 220 game before settling in a zone to string 11 strikes before a wayward shot on the 12th ball netted him 6 pins to end with a 296 second game. After starting with a turkey in the third game, he lost his line and finished with a 180 game and a 696 series.
Bowling in the Red River league for the first time, he showed no jitters by rolling a very good 651 series, which was second to only Joey Matson's 700 set.
Last year, Silgero bowled a 298 game for his high career game, chances are that this year he will finally achieve perfection with a 300 game.
Other great bowling scores produced during the week were by David Matthews (245-703), Joey Matson (254-700), James Holbert (261-696), Tom Crowe (694), Glen Pitts (287-690), Steve Dickinson (255-674), Bobby Mowles (258-662), David Flores (662), T.J. Mooney (279-655), Mike Osterson 259-653), Ray Rendon (653), Don Padgett (649), Kevin Stacy (266), Martin Almendarez (258), Shawn Miller (258), Steve Zeplin (257), Abel Garcia (256) and Ben Mooney (253).
Sharon Guinn turned in the high score for the women while competing in the Sugar & Spice League.
Guinn rolled games of 209, 214, and 214 to produce a very nice 637 series.
Christine Speer rolled a 571 set for second high.
Best wishes and God speed for a full recovery to Joan Conaway, a long time bowler, who had hip replacement surgery recently. She is doing well and doing her rehab so that she can recover her strength.
The Red River League welcomed back Henry Ramirez, who had dropped out of bowling for several years. He is hoping to get his bowling touch back soon.
The Red River League started its 50th season with this week's competition matching the Dow League (formerly Carbide) for longevity in local sanctioned play.
The Campus Lanes, a six lane house in 1954, hosted the action with teams sponsored by Pearl Beer, Lone Store, Beer, Trunkline Gas, Central Express, Red Arrow Express and Texaco.
