299 and 298 games, big 700 series highlight week's league bowling action
Four bowlers came oh so close to 300 games and 800 series last week in Genesee Region USBC league bowling action.
At Mancuso Bowling Center in Batavia, 22-year-old James Townsend and GRUSBC Hall of Famer Fred Gravanda each recorded 299 games with Townsend leaving a wobbly 4-pin and Gravanda leaving a solid 10-pin on their final balls.
Townsend came within 15 pins of an 800 series -- adding 232 and 254 for 785 -- while Gravanda finished with a 714 series.
At Rose Garden Bowl in Bergen, William Wood rolled a 298 game, being stymied by a 7-10 split on the final ball. Still, he finished with a 734 series.
At Oak Orchard Bowl in Albion, Robbie Hanks, who posted a 300 game the previous week, put together games of 268-278-245 for a 791 series in the Sneezy's Monday Night League.
