The finals of the Greater Citrus U.S. Bowling Association's annual Women's Tournament were held recently.
According to Parkview Lanes in Holder, which hosted the team event, the first-place winner for the division was Babes with Balls, consisting of Nancy Rushford, Eileen Flannery, Maureen Findel, Kim Shatney and Lin Hadley. The team scored high with a handicap pin total of 3,567.
Rounding out the top three in the team competition were Dixon Auto, which finished second with a total of 3,513, and The Smilers at Citrus and 5th, which had 3,462. Dixon Auto consisted of Deering, Martha Blackhall, Linda Sanborn, Patty Eckmier and Kelly Smith, and The Smilers at Citrus and 5th was made up of Jeremy Neff, Judy Boatwright, Amy Cochran, Lynn Clay and Liz Huxley.
AMATEUR BOWLERS TOUR: The ABT recently was at Spring Hill Lanes in Hernando County where Len Johnson of Spring Hill took first place and $460 in his first ABT event. Coming in third was George Cole of Homosassa.
Jesse Graves of Tallahassee has been the most successful tour member this year, winning his second career title at Alley Gatorz in Gainesville on Jan. 21. He was on hand for the Spring Hill tournament and took fourth and $110. He has been saving his winnings to enter the Las Vegas ABT Nationals this spring.
NEFF AT IT AGAIN: Consistently among the county leaders, Neff was atop both the high scratch game and series lists two weeks ago thanks to his performance in the Suncoast Mixed League that meets every Friday at Neffer's.
Neff shot a high game of 279 to bolster his 770 series, 31 pins higher than the next closest series total.
Between Suncoast and the Wednesday Night Men's League, the veteran bowler seems to always shoot at least one high game for the week.
