Kegler's Korner: Many high scores rolled on lanes this year

TERRE HAUTE — Who is the best bowler in Terre Haute?

Without a definitive, specific tournament, one must turn to the Greater Terre Haute Bowling Association 2006-07 bowlers yearbook. This annual volume, worked up by Association Manager Tony Leturgez, is chock full of information.

In the 2006-07 numbers, did you know that there were 18 bowlers rolling an 800-or-higher series? Best last season was Scott Johnson with an 858 three-game series on Feb. 14, 2007. That ranks third all-time in the area, trailing only Ryan Nichols (859) and Chris Drake (859).

A total of 75 perfect 300 games were recorded last season, down a bit from the 91 in the 2005-06 season. Just missing perfect games were 59 299 games, while a dozen 298 games were rolled as well.

But who is the best individual bowler, what would be the top five-person team be?

Figuring a 210 average was a good cutoff to get possibly a pool of a dozen bowlers at each of the local bowling facilities, I was amazed to discover well over 30 bowlers qualified under that standard at Vigo Bowl (41), Terre Haute Bowling Center (35) and Imperial Lanes (39).

Also cracking the 210-plateau were bowlers at the John Curry Lanes, Elks (2), Brazilian Lanes (7) and Lucky Strike, Clinton (1).

A total of six talented area bowlers averaged 230-or-higher in a league last season.

So without further adieu, let’s honor these high scorers with an all-area first team — taken from the entire men’s association:

Scott Hill, Imperial Lanes — 235

Bryan Barton, Terre Haute Bowling Center — 231 (and 230)
