Throwback Thursday 9/13/18: “For the bowling record”

“When Paul Andrew rolled 1,035 for his four games in the Highland Masters League on Oct. 30, he had games of 289, 266, 234 and 246. The first three add to 789, which equaled the series rolled many years ago by the late Abbie Hartzman. This has been considered to be the best series bowled in the Quad-Cities by a local bowler.

The ABC recognizes the first three games of a four-game league as eligible for awards based on a three-game series. Thus, the 789 by Andrew stood equal with Hartzman’s 789 as best by a local kegler.

However, Dan Miner surpassed both of them with a 255-286-257 – 798 series Thursday in the Tri-City Classic League at Leisure Lanes in Davenport.”
