Two members of the Kays-Ponger-Uselton Friendly Fours Mixed League at Treasure Lanes in Port Charlotte — Mark Nihoff and Jennifer Peacock — headline this week’s usedview.com report on high-score accomplishment from bowling centers in the Sarasota-Manatee-Charlotte County area.
Nihoff rolled the most-recent perfect game in the area, as he blasted 12 consecutive strikes in the middle game of a 752 series. He opened with a 244 game and followed with 300 and 208 to raise his nine-game average as a league substitute to 234.
In addition, Nihoff posted a 719 series that included a 276 game to increase his 24-game average to 232 in the Monday Night Men’s League, also at Treasure Lanes.
Nihoff obviously finds Treasure Lanes to his liking, after he carried a 198 yearbook average in the Nation’s Capitol Area Bowling Association during the 2012-13 winter league season, following averages of 215, 211 and 210 in the Baltimore, Md., area the previous season.
Peacock continues impressive streak
Meanwhile, Peacock remains on a roll in the KPU Friendly Fours League, where she holds a 224 average over the first 33 games of the summer league season.
Her most-recent effort was a 671 series that included a 264 game, and she now has posted 26 games of 200 or better, including 15 games of 230 or higher. She has a season-best 816 set that included a 299 game, and she also has registered series of 774 and 700.
