A perfect game by Sid Palmer at Englewood Bowl and a 708 series by Jessica Hendrickson at Sarasota Lanes are the headline items in this weekend's Examiner.com report of high scores at bowling centers in the Sarasota-Manatee-Charlotte County area.
Palmer blasted 12 consecutive strikes in the middle of a 166-over-average 751 series during competition in the Pete's Patio Mixed League, and the big numbers increased his average to 199.
Hendrickson pounded out her 708 set on games of 227, 268 and 213 in this week's session of the Bob Anderson Plumbing Mixed League, where she now carries a 203 average.
With many summer leagues having already concluded their schedules, and with fall-winter leagues yet to get under way, this week's report isn't too extensive, but other high-scoring accomplishments from area centers included:
- SARASOTA LANES: Aaron Albritton 277-714, Manuel Fontanot 269, Tom DeDona Jr. 269, Jordan Sepper 268-720, Cory Anderson 268, Richard McLaughlin 265-761; Christi Dodge 250, Kathy Anderson 234.
