Kegler’s Korner: Anderson took 5th in 2020 USBC Seniors Championship Tournament

Congratulations are in order to Karla Anderson, who finished in fifth place in her age group of the 2020 USBC Seniors Championship Tournament for women held in Las Vegas. After the six-game qualifying round, Anderson stood in sixth place and moved up one spot in the three-game finals.

This national singles tournament was held last month, after being postponed last year when Anderson qualified by winning the Pennsylvania State qualifying tournament. Nice going Karla! And, if you want to know what age group Karla was in, you’ll have to ask Karla. Final standings can be found on Bowl.com.

Even though he was bowling on the tuff sports shot in the Three-Man Major League, Alexis Neuer turned in the top male series of the week with a 772. Brenda Welshans bested all the ladies with a 627 series and a 258 game in the Faxon Classic League. High game honors for the men go to Beau Vincenzes who fired a 300 in the Diane Fox Memorial League.

Correction from last week’s column: it was Eric Arroyo who had a 299 game in the first week of bowling.

Did you know?

The USBC has extended to this bowling season, last season’s special exception to Rule 18, which normally restricts the use of liquid cleaners to clean balls during competition.

For this bowling season only, bowlers will be allowed to apply isopropyl alcohol (aka rubbing alcohol) to balls any time they choose, thus providing more protection against transmitting COVID-19.

The use of other cleaners or any other foreign substances during competition is still prohibited by Rule 18.

Hope to see you on the lanes.
