The high scores for the week ending Nov. 22:
Nice bowling everyone! 🎳👍
Taylor Sinkler continued to have the best season of the Westgate women last Friday in the TNBA league, posting 213-247-213 for a 673 set (recap, Lane 52; Note: Was bowled on different pair because of league’s social distancing rule). Nice bowling! 🎳🙂
(Editor’s note: I finally did get up to Westgate last Friday night to visit with Taylor.)
The TNBA league last Friday night saw two big nights, with Chris Zalewski getting the front 22, finishing 300-287-190 for a 777 (recap, Lane 54), and Devon McGregor going 225-298-247 for a 770 (Lane 48 on linked recap). For the women, Jessica Lowe also had a 258 game (see high scores).
Nice bowliing, all! 🎳🙂
Taylor Sinkler has easily been the best woman at Westgate this year, and showed why again last Friday night in the TNBA league, going 202-199-265 for a 666 set (see recap, Lane 58). For the men, Paris Cook wasn’t about to be outdone, chipping in a 279 game himself (see high scores). Good bowling! 🎳👏
Friday night’s return of the TNBA Mixed league saw Jessica Lowe record a 255 game, per the weekly high scores. WTG! 🎳😎
Ladies first: Taylor Sinkler, last Friday night in the TNBA league, threw 245-203-255 for a 703 set, while Chris Zalewski added a 276 game. Both of these can be shown on the same LeagueSecretary.com recap (Taylor Sinkler on Lane 47, Chris Zalewski on Lane 50). Nice bowling, particularly to Taylor! 🎳👍🔥
Congrats first to James Scales, who had a 299 game Sunday in the Rhythm & Bowling league. Also, nice bowling to a member of my league, Leah Loftis, with a 268 game in this league. 🎳👍😁
Taylor Sinkler had a nice game Friday night with a 251 in the TNBA Mixed league. Great bowling! 🎳🙂

Some good scores to report out of the TNBA league:
Nice bowling everyone! 🙂
Friday night in the TNBA league produced a notable woman’s score: Sandi Litchfield’s 674 set, per the league’s weekly highs. Great bowling! 🙂
Per the league’s weekly high scores, Tasheka Douglas had a 266 high game in a nice 713 series Sunday night in the Rhythm & Bowling league. WTG! 🙂
I’ve been hanging around the Patriots league more because you never know what will happen. To wit, last night, Samantha Gustin, carrying a 134 average, threw off a century (100 over average) 235 last game, her very first game over 200, closing a 545 effort, also her first series over 500. And she even beat her fiance and teammate, Alex Major, by a couple of sticks in that last game. To be fair, Samantha has been taking lessons from one of Alex’s cousins, Stephen.
Nice bowling Sammi! 🙂
I often forget to peek in on the travel league, but Ethan Reyes brought to my attention that he shot 289/791 Sunday at Westgate, and I also found in the high scores that Craig Souza of Wonder Bowl had a 270 game and Janie Hillman of North Bowl a 267 game. Nice bowling everyone! 🙂
A couple of notable women’s scores from last Sunday night in the Rhythm & Bowling league: Shonta Cooks with a 268 game and Tasheka Douglas with a 257. Nice job, ladies! 🙂
Friday night saw two notable scores in the TNBA league, Sandi Litchfield with a 657 series, and Hakim “Mr. 900” Emmanuel with a 278 game, per the weekly high scores. Good job! 🙂

Congrats to Ashley Major, who, per Sean Richard’s video posted on Facebook, nearly became the youngest girl with a 300 game at Westgate Lanes last night in the Adult/Junior league with a 287. Ashley is the older sister of Corey Major, who became the youngest with a 300 on the first night of the league.
Sarah Gill is currently the youngest girl with a 300 at Westgate.
I’ve posted about Tasheka Douglas, who had a 724 set last week in the Rhythm & Bowling league, before, but, for this post, she is joined by a new name: Taylor Sinkler, who had a 274 game. Good bowling, ladies. 🙂
The Bristol-Plymouth Bowling Association has made results of their first championship tournament official. I will use what the association posted on Facebook here:
Again, thank you to all of the participants and congratulations to those who cashed.
With the state associations now merged, this post is different from previous years.
A couple of scores from the Rhythm & Bowling league, including a woman’s score: Rene Thompson finally broke through with a 300, and Tasheka Douglas had a 256 high game in a 723 set. Nice bowling! 🙂
UPDATE: I missed this detail originally, but Rene’s 300 is the first one recorded by the new scoring system, so additional congrats! 🙂
The now-merged association held its third annual Holiday Doubles tournament yesterday at Westgate, and there was a good game score out of that was a 290 by Shirley Major, who appears back to form after taking some time off. Nice bowling, Shirley! 🙂
UPDATE: Danny Khuu informed me that there was also a 299, which I didn’t see, thrown by Jake Campbell. WTG! 🙂
As the Bristol-Plymouth Bowling Association posted above, Westgate bowler Ruthie Graham was one of the women’s champions at the state senior tournament, held last month at AMF Auburn Lanes. For those without Facebook access, the final women’s prize list can be found here. This was the first year the open and women’s senior tournaments were conducted concurrently at the same site.
Congrats Ruthie! 🙂
