It has been a long time since the weekly high-score report has lacked at least one 11-in-a-row performance, but that's the situation regarding recent league play in the Sarasota-Manatee-Charlotte County area.

Indeed, the highest reported single-game score was a 286 rolled by Matt Hoffman, who strung 10 consecutive strikes in the opening game of a 667 series in the Amore's Italian Restaurant Mixed League at AMF Venice Lanes. The highest series was a 771 by Mike Aleshire in the Kays-Ponger-Uselton Men's League at Treasure Lanes.

Among the women, the top series was a 690 by Ashley Schwartz in the Thursday Mixed League at Bowland Port Charlotte, while the top women's game was a 269 by Mickeal Paige in the same league.

Nancy Burton posted one of the season's top over-average performances, when she more than doubled her 129 average with a 264 game in the All-American Heating & Cooling League at Sarasota Lanes.

Other impressive far-over-average scores included: Mike Hendrickson, with a 176-over 734 series that included a 277 game in the C&L Awards Mixed League at Sarasota Lanes; Ed Camp, with a 168-over 672 series in the JDB Inernational Mixed League at AMF Gulf Gate; Bob Cunningham, with a 167-over 701 series that included a 270 game in the Honest A/C of Venice League at AMF Venice; and William Davidson, with a 144-over 585 series in the Lemon Bay Mixed League at Englewood Bowl.
