Kegler’s Korner: Karla Anderson rolls a 693 series
Karla Anderson became last week’s top woman bowler when she bowled 693 series in the Susquehanna Health League. In the Intercommunity League, Dewayne Harris shot an 807 to lead the men. Brenda Welshans’s 247 in the Walter Zeek Memorial League tied Anderson’s top game in her high series, as the high female game of the week, while Taylor Smith threw a 300 game in the Monday Night Classic League — beating out Kevin Smith’s 299 in the Susquehanna Health League — for the leading men’s game. Youth bowler Gavin Briggs rolled a 713 series on the strength of a 266 game in the Faxon Youth League.

Did you know the American Bowling Center, known locally as the ABC Lanes on Park Avenue, opened in 1941? With 16 alleys located on the first floor of a new building, the ABC Lanes became the largest set of alleys in the area and the first local establishment with bowling as its main attraction.
Prior to 1941, local bowling alleys were constructed primarily in basements, and primarily in sets of two or four lanes, as a side attraction to the main, existing business operations on other floors of existing buildings.
Hope to see you on the lanes.
