Postgame Bowling Report (02/12/2006)
It was about three years ago (Feb. 18, 2003 to be exact) when Larry Walters tossed his first career 300 game and a career-high 787 series.

February must be his lucky month, because February of 2006 has started out very nice for Walters.

The 45-year-old Ridgeway resident enjoyed his second perfect game of his career Tuesday night in the American League at Westgate Bowl. That 300 game came in his third game. He rolled games of 246 and 245 before that, leading to a new career-high series of 791.

"I don't know what was different; consistency I guess," said Walters, who works at Watlow. "And luck. Anyone who says you can get a series like that without luck is lying."

Last year Walters averaged a tad under 215 and rolled four 700s - the biggest being a 709. His 791 was just his second honor count this season.

Walters is another one of those one-night-a-week bowlers that has the capability to put up a big score. He said his average was around 209 before Tuesday.

"I've never bowled more than once a week," Walters said. "I'm too busy. Maybe some day. Right now I don't have the time."

An 800 series never cross Walters' mind on Tuesday. But it might have to after that performance.

"That's way out there and something to dream about," he said. "Last night was one of my better chances to get it. But I'm happy with it."

Walters led his H & M Plumbing team to a 3,696 team series, which is the ninth highest series ever in the Winona Bowling Association. Teammate Dan Donahue added a 727 series.

"I don't know why, but I was a little more nervous with this (300) game," Walters admitted. "My teammates helped keep me loose."

The 300 game was the 23rd rolled this season in the WBA.

WBA tourney ends

One shift last Saturday concluded the annual Winona Bowling Association Men's City Tournament at Winona Bowl.

Brad Lisowski was crowned the singles champion with a 773 series, one pin higher than runner-up Matt Durnen. Scott Ellinghuysen was the scratch champion with a 731.

Brian Fakler and Tod Walters won both the scratch and handicap titles in doubles with a 1,470 score. Greg and Joe Jasnoch were second with a 1,432.

Dustin Holland, who's in his first year of bowling in men's league, was the all-events winner with a 2,173. Nick's Heilman's 2,162 score was good for second and won the scratch title.

Who's hot?

Some of the veteran Winona women bowlers came through with some big scores last week, led by Keri Wegman's season-high 703 series. Wegman tossed games of 231, 248 and 224 while subbing in the Sunsetters League at Westgate Bowl. She tossed a 612 series earlier in the week.

Rose Schultz added her first two honor counts of the season with scores of 620 and 607. Keri Prigge rolled a 662 honor count and Sue Buermann turned in a 659, also in the Sunsetters League. One of the city's top young bowlers, Angie Pomeroy, stayed hot with a 659 honor count, and Laurie Wiseman added a season-high 674 series.

Joining Wegman and Schultz with a pair of honor counts in the past week were Krystal Dorman (686, 600), Diane Marley (670, 655) and Maggie Glenn (613, 612).

Besides Walters, also rolling season-high scores last week for the men were John Glowczewski, (795), Bill Bonow (782), Tom Donnelly (766), Brad Bartelson (765), Troy Evans (755), Greg Fakler (745) and Russ Prenot (743). Ken Cordes chipped in his first honor count of the year with a 708 in the American League at Westgate.

Greg Schewe came very close to a 300 game last Friday in the Masters League at Westgate, but had to settle for a 298. Schewe tossed a pair of 700s (721, 710), as did Bonow (782, 724).
