Theresa Frosch fired a perfect game in an 804 series, one of the highest ever by a Madison area woman, and Craig Wells slammed a perfect game in an 805 to highlight Madison area bowling on Thursday.
Frosch’s second career 300 came after games of 246 and 258 in the Schwoegler’s Gypsies League. The only series I know of by a Madison area woman higher than Frosch’s 804 is an 825 by Leann Butts. Anyone who knows of other scores higher than 804 please send me details in an email to email@example.com.
Update: Becky James has series of 822 and 815, both at Bowl-A-Vard Lanes in 2005.
Earlier this week, Frosch rolled a Sport Bowling 686 on the 2012 USBC Open Championships pattern in the Badger Bowl Scratch Nationals League, and earlier this season she recorded a 705.
It also was the third 300 by a Madison area woman this season — Cher Breunig at Prairie Lanes and Sue Brown at Spartan Bowl had the others.
Wells followed his fifth career 300 with games of 278 and 227 for his 805, also in the Schwoegler’s Gypsies.
Scott Roelke fell a shot shy of perfection with a 298 game in a 734 series in the Dream Lanes Suburban Atlas League.
Other men’s series of 750 or higher were 769 by Matt Wynhoff and 754 by Carey Emerson in the Bowl-A-Vard Lanes Lake City League, 767 by Jeremy Hanson in the Sugar River Lanes Vacation League, 756 by Mike Nelson in the Oregon Bowl Three-Man League, and 753 by Chad Baker in the Prairie Lanes Classic League.
Sarah Maciejeski was next for the women with a 677 in the Village Lanes Thirsty League.
It was another solid scoring night on the 47-foot Team USA Sport pattern for the Ten Pin Alley Bullseye Masters League, with four bowlers scoring 700 or higher — myself at 735, Tony Thaden at 729, Jay Heinzelman at 727, and Mike Hoffman at 721 — and 18 of the league’s 32 members at 625 or higher.
