2015 Mass. state tournament Day 8

Before I wrap up the final day of the tournament, I’ll tie up a couple of loose ends from yesterday, as Jim Sicard had games of 258, 279, and 278 for an 815 series and Mike Farrar had a 300 game in the singles event of the 3:30 squad.

Today belonged to Tom Hedding, who, in the 9 AM squad, bowled games of 290, 258, and 300 for an 848 series, and because this was in his singles event, this is a new state tournament record, set just last year in Lowell by Ralph Marple. There were a couple of honor games in doubles prior to that, with Dave Chalifoux’s 300 game and Steve Travers with a 290 game.

The last squad of the tournament saw Scott Corkhum throw games of 279, 280, and 259 for an 818 series, which I believe helped him and his brother Ken into the scratch doubles lead. Rounding out the final day of the tournament, Jim Simon had a 299 game in doubles, and Chris Carter another 299 in singles.

I will post the final results link and acknowledge the champions when the results are made official.
