The Bowling Report (03/23/2008)

With all the women's 700 scores turned in during the 2007-08 season, Diane Marley sat back patiently and kept plugging away.

Eight different gals combined for 30 scores of 700 or better before Marley got into the act last Wednesday night at Winona Bowl.

She started the evening out with a 670 national honor count in the Lamplighter League. That was just the sign of things to come. Marley and Jerry Bublitz then had to make up their games for the previous week's Mixed Nuts League.

And that's when she became the ninth woman bowler in Winona to toss a 700 series as Marley nailed games of 221, 254 and 244 for a 719 series.

"It's been fairly consistent this year," said Marley, who came back with a 633 on Wednesday in the Lamplighter. "I haven't had that big series until now."

It's not that Marley is struggling this year. She now has 32 honor counts for the year and is carrying a 203 average in the Lamplighter League. She also bowls every other Monday in the Spinners League and every other Saturday in the Mixed Nuts League.

For someone who's been averaging around 200 for the past 10 years or so, Marley is still trying to find ways to improve her game.

"A couple years ago (Winona Bowl owner) Brian (Fakler) had me get a 10-pin ball," Marley said. "That's helped. If you pick up one extra 10-pin a night, that adds three pins to your average.

"I got a new ball and that really helps. I throw this one inside more. I like that tight line. At the start of the year, it seemed like there was more oil. I started throwing over second arrow. Now I've move farther inside and throw it between the second and third arrow. The girls are using the technology more. It's helping them a lot. You don't have to throw the 16-pound ball like the guys. There are a lot of young bowlers that are good, and they're not afraid to spend $150 or $200 on a ball."

Marley, who averaged 206 last year, is surprised to see two of her three biggest scores of the season year come this late.

"Some times I start out real well and then slump, but I always seemed to come back in January and February," she said. "I guess it's a late comeback this year."

Who's hot?

Brad Kanz and Paul Jandt became the latest two men bowlers to rolled 300 games in the past week.

Kanz fired his first career perfect game last Friday in the Legion League at Winona Bowl, while Jandt added his 300 game Monday in the City League, also at Winona Bowl. Kanz finished with a 746 honor count and Jandt had a 707.

Geoff Schewe tossed the top men's series in the past week with a 760 Tuesday night in the Blue Ribbon League at Winona Bowl.

Al Pelts rolled his first 700 of the year with a 738 in the Mixed Nuts League, while Dan Boynton turned in his first two honor counts of the season with a 720 in the Legion League and a 716 in the City League.

Bill Bonow (708) and Dennis Schewe Jr. (700) also threw 700s.

Keri Wegman recorded her fifth 700 of the season last Thursday with a 706 series in the Sparklers League at Winona Bowl. It was Wegman's first 700 of the year at Winona Bowl.

Krystal Dorman rolled scores of 673, 614 and 605 in the past week, and Keri Prigge added a pair of 600s with a 634 and 618.

Annette Trachta tossed a season-high 669 series Monday in the Pin Topplers League at Westgate, and Katie Meadows added a career-high 642 honor count Wednesday in the Lamplighter League.

Other 600s came from Julie Moldenhauer (636), Roxy Kohner (622), Rose Schultz (615), Kim Kubis (614) and Tina Wenzel (603).

And rolling his first career 600 series was Sarah Koehler, whose 611 came in the Mixed Nuts League.
