City champions crowned

Hello bowlers! This is Jim Ephlin, from the Rushville Bowl, where all the action is.

The books have been closed and champions crowned as the city championships are complete. The team division was as close as it gets with only two pins separating first and second. This year’s champion shot 3,492 ( 232 avg per person per game) and went by the name 4 Bandits and a Lady. Making up the first place team was Nathan Nigh, Betsy Walls, Butch Robinson, Randy Reynolds and Gary Nigh Sr.

The team was lead by Nathan Nigh, who fired a perfect 300 game in the event.

First place champion in the actual division was “We Don’t Care” shooting 3,455 (230 avg per person per game). They set the house record last year in this event and turned in another good one. They are Tom Howard, Justin Howard, Scott Carpenter, Robert Jacobs and Craig Kuhn.

In doubles, it was Todd Howard and Andrew Wainwright combing for 1,509 (250 avg per game per person) to claim the title. They were followed by Dustin Jones and Jim Huddleston 1,492 and Aaron Coon and Gary Liggett 1,468.

The team of Jim Huddleston and Dustin Jones won the actual championship with a score of 1,476 (246 avg per game per person).

Singles competition saw Butch Robinson top all bowlers with a 774 series (258 avg per game) followed by Crystal Jacobs 763 and Paul Koors 753. Singles actual champion was Tom Howard with a 727 (242 avg per game).

For the bowlers who bowl in team, doubles and singles, there is the optional all-events category. This event takes your scores from those events and totals them for another prize category. This year’s all-events champion was Tony Self shooting 2,271 (253 avg per game) with handicap. He was followed by Butch Robinson 2,265 and Ken Howard 2,212.

The Rushville USBC BA recognizes all events achievements from their senior members. In doing so, they have a Class A and Class B Senior all events winner. Class A winner was Butch Robinson while Ken Howard took Class B title.
