Schauff still rolling; Wood tosses perfect city bowling season's first youth perfect game

McEwan wins PWBA Tour Championship; Liz Johnson takes season honor

Rick Schauff continued to set the pace for seniors and adults, while Adam Wood tossed the season’s first youth 300 game to highlight last week’s city bowling action.

 

Schauff topped his previous season-best of 772 with a 237-279-263 – 779 series in the Monday Seniors League at West Ridge Lanes, and followed that with a 204-269-247 – 720 on Thursday in the Senior Wheel of Fortune League at WR. To date, Schauff has had five 700s in senior league play and at least two in open leagues.

Other top men’s scores: Ashton Bigger, 749 at WR; Mitch Turpin, 738 at Gage Center Bowl; and Matt Turpin, 737 at WR.

The women were led by Rachel Barber’s 247 – 690 and Chelsie Bahr’s 232 – 669, both at West Ridge, and Angie Ross’ 248 – 640 at Center.

Wood, who won the Youth Top Ten boys’ title in August at Gage Center, posted his perfect game during a 235-174-300-219 – 928 four-game outing at Center, where Carley Sullivan led the girls with a 265 – 827 four-game set.

Pacing the senior women were Ann Dick, 225 – 583, and Kay Johnson, 225 – 567, both at West Ridge.
