Summer bowling season comes to end

Hello bowling fans! This is Jim Ephlin, at the Rushville Bowl, where all the action is. We have finished the 2013 summer leagues for the year with winners announced.

On Tuesday evenings we ran the first ever Singles League at Rushville Bowl. Each bowler played for him or herself thus they were their own team. Sixteen players signed up for the inaugural season with averages ranging from 103 to 217.

A very aggressive point system was used with 45 points possible to be won on any given night. We saw more than a few times players move up or down in the standings by as many as 8 or 10 positions in one league session. The point system worked like this for each game. If you had the #1 best score for that game you received 15 points as you just beat 15 people. If you finish 7th in a game you get 9 points for the 9 people you just beat. The bottom four spots 13 - 16 were all given 4 points per game.

Going into the final session we had 7 players within 16 points of each other. The players came ready to give it their all that final night with final standings and scores looking like this: 1.) Justin Howard 702; 2.) Mike LaFuse 657; 3.) Thomas Wright 625; and 4.) James Isaac 625. We look for this league to be a popular draw next summer and there is even talk of a short mid-season league like this forming this season.

Thursday nights we ran the biggest summer league of the past 10 years as we had 48 bowlers come together for 9-pin No-Tap league. Team #9 proved to be too much and captured first place after being #1 for most of the season. Some great individual performances were recorded. Brett Bennet set a new standard for average in No- Tap as he averaged 277.73 for the summer. That includes eleven 300 games and a perfect 900 series.
