Some notable youth league scores from Feb. 22:

  • Dylan Major, with a 279 game (207 avg.) in the Seniors league
  • Aiden Delehoy, with a 246 game and 711 series (176 avg.), also in the Seniors league
  • Ian Zalewski, with a 204 game (130 avg.) in the Juniors league
  • Phillip Noonan, with a 164 game (99 avg.), also in the Juniors league

Nice bowling everyone! 🙂

Note: Aiden Delehoy is a younger bowler, but is allowed to bowl with the senior kids because he carries such a high average for his age.

Aaron Major slams 300/846 in His & Hers

Aaron Major had his best league night yet, according to his mother, Debbie, when he went 289-300-257 for an 846 the other night in the His & Hers league, noted also in the league’s weekly highs. Debbie messaged me asking if I was aware; I was, not having posted yesterday due to dealing with Hakim’s 5th anniversary. However, I did put it up on the association’s new Instagram, which I’ll embed here if I can figure out how to do it.

WTG Aaron! 🙂

Note: Aaron’s average in the league is currently 250.50. The highest average in the state that I’m aware of is Alex Aguiar’s 250 for 96 games in the old Westport Match Play Classic league at Holiday Lanes in the 2009-10 season. Henry Verdini, president of the state association, along with his wife, Barbara, are helping me try to find other state record candidates.

UPDATE: Attempting to embed the Instagram about Aaron’s night here:

Jayme Silva Sr. & Ed Grossett win NAT One-Ball Doubles at East Providence

Feb 16 NAT One-Ball Doubles
Finalists of the Northeast Amateur Tournament One-Ball Doubles at East Providence Lanes on Feb. 16 (L-R): Champions Jayme Silva Sr. & Ed Grossett, runners-up Jim Ferguson & Sean Richard (Photo courtesy of NAT)

Per the Northeast Amateur Tournament’s Facebook post (must be logged in to view), Jayme Silva Sr. & Ed Grossett won the One-Ball Doubles event yesterday at East Providence Lanes with a 541-475 victory (handicap added) in the final match over Jim Ferguson & Sean Richard. This was the first NAT doubles event with the One-Ball format, meaning a competitor used his same ball for all shots in qualifying and in match play if his team qualified.

A notable game was turned in by Sean Richard in qualifying, a 300, the video of which the BPUSBC obtained from Sandi Litchfield and made the first video on their new Instagram, which can be found here.

Nice bowling everyone! 🙂

Aaron Major throws 300/816 in His & Hers

Per the league’s recap sheet, Aaron Major Tuesday night went 300-268-248 for an 816 set in the His & Hers league. I’m not sure what the state record average is, but I want to say it belongs to Alex Aguiar with something in the 250s. If Aaron’s heater is extended, that record could be threatened.

I also need to mention Ray Fischer’s 279 game, which is on the same page of recap sheets. Nice bowling everyone! 🙂
