Here’s the bowling quote of the week:
Eric Forkel’s stunning series in the Southern Nevada Bowling Tour’s season-opening event Saturday in Las Vegas wasn’t lost on bowling aficionados.
Forkel, a Van Nuys High graduate now living in Henderson, Nev., smoked a 1,361 series in a five-game set to earn $442 for his first-place finish – more than 100 pins ahead of the runner-up.
Forkel’s scores of 300, 258, 247, 299 and 257 averaged out to a blockbuster 272.2 per game.
