The city record for the high women's team series lasted less than a year for the Dan's Dugout team from the Lamplighter League at Winona Bowl.
Monday night, Malewicki Cement rolled the highest women's series ever in Winona with a 3,462 series in the Spinners League, also at Winona Bowl. That score was two pins better than Dan's, which bowled its big series on Feb. 2.
It was a pair of new names to the Winona bowling circuit that led the way for Malewicki. Krystal Beech, who's in her second year of adult leagues, paced the team with a career-high 677 series. She was followed closely by Lisa Pietkauskis, a first-year league bowler who tossed her first career national honor count with a 671.
The rest of the record-setting team included Trish Skelton, Heidi Malewicki and Jaime Goerts.
Malewicki Cement's score was only the eighth women's series of 3,400 or better ever bowled in Winona.
Where's the 300s?
There have been times in recent years where two or three 300 games a week was nothing out of the ordinary.
This year, however, those perfect games have been nowhere to be found. We're a month and a half into the season and still without a 300 heading into Thursday night.
Some may blame it on the hot and humid fall weather. Or maybe Westgate Bowl and Winona Bowl are putting out a little tougher shot this year. The 300s will come, but maybe not at the rapid pace of the past few years.
At this time last year, there were already seven 300s, including three by Brian Fakler.
It might be tough to beat defending champion Keri Prigge for the women's average title the way she's started the 2007-08 season.
After bowling a 729 series last week, Prigge came back with a 685 national honor count Wednesday night in the Sunsetters League at Westgate. It was her seventh honor count this year.
One bowler who may give Prigge a run for her money is Krystal Dorman, who rolled scores of 658 and 632 in the past week. Dorman leads the city with nine honor counts.
Angie Booher rolled her top series of the young season Wednesday with a 658 in the Lamplighter League.
Also tossing 600s for the women in the past week were Sue Yeoman (629), Keri Wegman (629), Maggie Glenn (621) and Mandi Steffes (601).
Josh Wenzel paved the way for the men with a 773 honor count in the American League at Westgate. He also rolled a 706 in the Legion League at Winona Bowl. Seth Bonow led the Legion with a 762 series.
Joe Jasnoch and Dave Hultgren also fired big scores in the American League with matching 757s.
The list of men's honor counts was pretty impressive this week: Christ Brown (731), Tod Walters (730), Dennis Schewe Jr. (720), Dusty Holland (717), Robbie Waldera (715), Kiel Jenkin (714), Nick Heilman (709), Aaron Spitzer (707), Dave McLaughlin (707), Paul Ciszak (700) and Tom Donnelly (700).
Last Thursday in the Knights of Columbus League at Westgate, Tony Heer turned in his first career 600 series with a 615.
