Congratulations to our SSO Hall of Fame inductee Ken Wyatt on his third win this season defeating past champion Super Senior Jeff Suma in the final match 243 to 226. Ken took home the top prize of $1000 and the trophy. Wyatt qualified in 5th place averaging 229 during his first six game with a total pin fall of 1372 to make it into the Elimination Rounds. Ken bowled steady in this 5 game Elimination rounds averaging 238.
With this win Ken moves firmly in the lead for Bowler Of The Year with 62 points so far this season. Gerald Johnson still has the record for the most BOTY points with 70.
Congratulations also goes out to Jeff Suma on his second place finish. Jeff received $500.00 for our 2nd place payout. Suma qualified in 22nd spot averaging 205 with a 1229 total pin fall. Jeff, however, averaged better than 242 in his 5 game Elimination rounds.
This month's tournament was held at Wayne Bowl where we requested the Kegel Easy Street Pattern, a short low volume pattern. We would like to thank the management and staff for hosting our tournament this weekend.
This month's tournament average was 203, 7 pins lower than our last tournament average of 210.
We had 57 bowlers in attendance this month. There were 23 super seniors and 5 super super seniors and 2 women with the rest of our seniors.
We also had 21 bowlers in our Elimination Rounds, 9 SS and 1 SSS along with the rest of our seniors. This provided a little better than 1 in 3 cashing ratio for the tournament.
High Qualifier was Brad Gray with 1470 total pins with an average of 245 after his first 6 games finishing the set with a 289 game.
It took a total of 1281 and an average of 214 or better to make our regular cut line set by Anthony Moses.
