Kegler’s Korner

Bowling season is now in full swing with all local leagues being active last week. Gay Harris led all the women in the area with a 649 series in the Faxon Classic League. The high male bowler was Brian Eiswerth who shot a 769 in the Mighty 8 League at Faxon, which also produced the female high game of 275 by Kelly Eiswerth.

Tom Lehman’s 290 game in the Andy Tressler Memorial League at Harvest Moon was the high game for the men. Alicia Edkin’s 257 game in the previous week in the Inter-community League was overlooked as the highest game recorded by a woman that week.

This week we want to remember local Bowling Association Hall of Famer, Lloyd Phillips. Phillips worked as a sports writer for the Sun-Gazette for over 30 years. It was natural for him, as an avid bowler, to produce the “Kegler’s Korner” article from the late 1960s until the mid 1990s, when he retired. On the lanes, Phillips’ bowling achievements included a 204 average for the 1970-71 season and a high career game of 279. He was elected to the Lycoming County Bowling Association Hall of Fame in 1997. He passed away in 2006.
