* Sportsmanship Award 2008-2009.

Shalynda has scored a high game of 216 and a high series of 545. In addition, Shalynda has amassed a box load full of league high-game and high-series awards, including USBC achievement awards, along with a 75-pins-over-average game and a 140-pins-over-average series.
During the three years that Shalynda has been rolling a bowling ball down the lane and sending pins flying into the pit, she has secured more than $1,500 in scholarship money that she will be putting toward her education in becoming a registered nurse.
Congratulations, Shalynda, on being named youth bowler of the year!
Erwin vaults into lead
Golden Oldies bowler Jan Erwin rolled a 563 series with games of 168, 172 and 223. Jan's 223 game was more than enough to capture the No. 1 spot for the women's league high game. Jan's 564 series is good for second place in high series.
Barbara Hollen is second with a 213. Phyllis Cousins rolled her way into third place this past week with a 208.
On the men's side, the hot hand goes to Darvin Cousins. Darvin extended his first-place lead in the high-series arena with scores of 206, 233 and 222 for a 661 series. Darvin's 233 game put him in a tie for third high game with longtime bowler Bob Schuh.
First place is held by Don Erwin with a 256, second is Al Steele at 234.
Also having a good week was Duffy Phillips. Duffy carries a 142 average and rolled games of 130, 183 and 207 for a 520 series.
