An 18-year-old normally would not be listed as a veteran.
But Amber Orcutt could be listed as one. Amber, bowling in her thirteenth year of Junior Bowling, accomplished something that many bowlers never do.
The best way to describe it was stated at the State Legion Tournament when Linda Johnson congratulated Amber by saying, “I have been bowling for over 50 years and have not done that.”
Bowling in the Superstars League at Great River Bowl, Amber started with a 300 game. When asked if Mom was coaching, Amber said, “No, I was on lanes 7 and 8 and Mom was watching Autumn on lanes 1 and 2.” When I asked Mom, Shannon Orcutt, she said, “I was watching her and did not want to jinx her by moving.”
I believe Shannon was more proud of what Amber had accomplished than Amber was. Amber finished with games of 222 and 184 for a 706 series.
Amber, a senior at St. Cloud Tech, topped her previous high game of 289. Her highest series is a 758 series. The right-hander loves to play volleyball also, but was sidelined by a knee injury, thankfully to her right knee and not her sliding leg.
When asked if she was nervous during the 300 game, Amber said, “Yeah the last one in the twelfth frame.” Amber works at two jobs also, working at the YMCA and Southway Bowl.
The Tri City League at Great River Bowl had a lot of 279 games this week. Matthew Sundquest had games of 279-279-258 for a 816 series. Dana Mayo topped Matthew, rolling games of 279-279-279 for a 837 series. Dana left a 7-pin in the eighth frame of the first game, a 4-pin in the sixth frame of the second game and another 4-pin in the fourth frame of the third game.
Scott Endersbe rolled a 816 series in the Thursday 4 Man Match League at Cold Spring Lanes. Scott, who was averaging 215, had games of 263-300-253.
Bruce Arnold came within a pin of being perfect with a 299 game in the Rapids Rec League at Great River Bowl. Bruce said, “I was a little high and left a sliding 10-pin that moved across the pin deck and never even wobbled. Could not believe it stayed standing.” Bruce finished with games of 223 and 234 for a 766 series.
Tom Miskowic rolled a 299 game to end the Thursday Tri County League at Great River Bowl. Tom started with games of 182 and 180 for a 661 series.
Lance Hengel rolled 60 pins over his 218 average with a 278 game in the All American League at Southway Bowl.
Alex Duea rolled his first 700 series a 704 total. Alex, who is averaging 170 in the Pinchasers League at Great River Bowl, rolled games of 205-232-267 (97 pins over average).
Ron Christen rolled a 288 game, 95 pins over his 193 average in the City League at Southway Bowl. Ron totaled 656 for the night.
Dave Hervin rolled his first 700 series in the Tuesday Classic League at Cold Spring Lanes. Dave, who has a 175 average, rolled games of 234-256-219 for a 709 series.
Zach Lance rolled 64 pins over his 212 average in the Stearns County League at Southway Bowl with a 276 game. Zach totaled 677.
