McBride Earns Membership in City's 300 Club

Article excerpt

The city's 300 club welcomed its 20th member this season when Robb McBride bowled 300-234-189 - 723 a week ago Monday night in the Sundowners West League at West Ridge Lanes.

McBride became the 19th man to reach perfection during the 2014- 15 campaign. Chelsie Bahr is the lone woman in the group.

The season honor roll, which debuted at sports/bowling, saw few other changes at the top of the adult list last week.

Tony Nelson led the men with a 279-276 - 780 series, while Rachel Barber topped the women with a 236 - 681 set, both at Gage Center Bowl. Dustin Michaelis tossed a 299 game at Center, while Lamont Lassiter shot 298 at West Ridge.

There were bigger changes in the senior ranks, where Gerry Sanders claimed fifth place with a 269-234-228 - 731 outing at West Ridge, where Jack Dick tied for ninth with a 210-267-241 - 718 effort and Pat Mellott, 267-243-200 - 710, and Omer Van Vleck, 184- 269-257 - 710, tied for 13th.

Barb Tidwell continued to pace the senior women with a 268 - 642 outing at Center. The series ranks third behind Tidwell's 667 and 664 at Center and her second 268 at GC is tied for first (with Ann Dick's 268 at West Ridge).

The youth were led by Blake Massey, 248-224-232 - 704; Adam Wood, 255-213-236 - 704; Whitney Prockish, 237 - 643 and 235 - 632, and Carley Sullivan, 224 - 633, all at Center. Wood added a 242 fourth game for a 946 grand total.

- The United States Bowling Congress has closed the books on what would have been the first sanctioned perfect series in history after re-evaluating Glenn Allison's 900, which was turned down in 1982 by the American Bowling Congress, the USBC's predecessor organization.

"Any official change to Glenn Allison's 900 would also impact thousands of scores in that era," USBC president Andrew Cain said in a news release. "As a national governing body with a legal responsibility to enforce rules uniformly, we simply can't rewrite history for one score and apply a different standard more than 30 years later."

Allison's series, bowled July 1, 1982, in La Habra, Calif., was t approved by the ABC because of non-complying lane condition rules at that time.
