Sports briefs for Nov. 21, 2012: Bowling leagues starting to see separation at Thunder Rolls
November 21, 2012
The bowling seasons at Thunder Rolls Bowling Center are now more than one-third of the way over, and the standings continue and to take shape.
As of Nov. 17, the Thunder Rolls team has increased it's lead over Mr. B's. Despite posting the highest scratch game and series scores last week, Mr. B's went just 1-3 in points, and fell behind Thunder Rolls by four.
The league's top two not sit at 37-7 and 33-11, respectively, with Grants in third place at 31-13 in the Tuesday Ladies Nite Out league.
Country Living Realty enjoyed a perfect 4-0 week in the Wednesday Northwest Men's League. That provided the team with a bit more separation at the top of the standings while the middle-of-the-pack teams also started to fall into place.
Last week eight teams sat within five points of the top spot. Now, the Northwest Men's looks more like a five-team competition, with Craig Physical therapy (27-13), Tri-State Equipment (26-14), Thunder Rolls (25-15) and Woody's Outlaws (25-15) still battling.
The six-team Early Bird Thursday morning league has two teams ahead of the rest. The 3 Stooges sit in the lead at 158-106, but KDD is not far behind, sporting a 156.5-107.5 point total so far.
The Misfits and Has Been Gonna B are now tied for first place, each at 31-13 on the season in the Thursday Night Premier Mixed Doubles league. The top two hold a 3.5-point advantage of third place Pin Heads, which had a perfect 4-0 week.
After pushing ahead of the pack except for one team last week, team Pick up Sticks now stands alone atop the Friday Night Mixed Nuts standings. A 4-0 week has them at 34-10, while last week's second-place team, Sandbaggers, went 0-4, and is now tied with Bi-Polar Rollers for second at 29-15.
High scratch scores from the week:
Men: Dave Silver 280
Women: Daniel Curtis 237
Youth Pee Wee: Christopher Baptist 86
Youth Bantam: Sharon Quick 138
Youth High Rollers: Sheyenne Cromer 214
Pee-wee basketball leagues now open for K-2
Youth basketball leagues for boys and girls from kindergarten through second grade are accepting registrations for the leagues, which start in February.
There is potential for six leagues, depending on the number of participants, which will play games on weeknight evenings. Boys leagues will play Mondays and Wednesdays while girls will play Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The league will focus on teaching players the basics: dribbling, passing, shooting and learning to play as part of a team.
Practices start Feb. 11. Anyone registering after Jan. 9 will be placed on a waitlist with no guarantee of being put on a team.
League fees are $30. For more information, call Parks and Rec at 826-2004.
Winter lifeguard training courses coming up
Registration for a lifeguard training course during the winter break is open.
Craig Parks and Recreation has aquatic programs year-round, and is in need of lifeguards even during the winter and spring. The class is for teenagers and adults above the age of 15.
Participants must pass a swim test before being allowed to take the lifeguard course, which will take place over the school's winter break.
The swim test will be Dec. 12 from 7-8 p.m., which therefore doubles as the last day to sign up for lifeguard training.
There is a registration fee of $125. All those interested must call Parks and Rec at 826-2017 to register.
Registration open for Trailbusters 2013
Registration is now available for the 2013 Trailbusters skiing and snowboarding beginner courses.
Local youth ages 6 to 15 can sign up from now through Jan. 7 to learn how to ski or snowboard. Trailbusters will travel to Steamboat Springs for five Saturdays starting Jan. 19 (excluding Feb. 16). Participants will need to provide their own equipment, whether it is bringing along skis or renting them.
The ski and snowboard lessons cost $250, with an additional $45 covering the five bus trips to Steamboat. A $31 lift ticket also will need to be purchased for each week.
For more information, call Pennie Bricker, of Craig Parks and Recreation, at 970-826-2029.
