It was a family affair Wednesday (May 27) in the NW District’s 9-Pin No Tap Bowling at Holiday Lanes when Kathleen and Charlie McCoy were top scorers for the sexes.
Kathleen posted a 666 series to pace the women’s side and win the 65-69 age bracket. She had a 31-pin advantage over her closest rival, Paula Hadwin, who packed off the 60-64 age group gold with a 635. Gayle Pearce won the 55-59 women’s gold with a 621.
Kathleen’s husband had an even wider margin (51 pins) over second-place when he posted an 843 series in the men’s 70-74 age bracket. Scoring in No Tap records a strike on every one-pin leave on a bowler’s first ball.
Steve Adams rolled a 792 for second spot in high series. He won the gold medal in the 55-59 age group. Larry Hadwin rolled a 747 series to win the 65-69 age gold.
McCoy’s series also contained high game of the day (300). Clarence Greene was next in line with a 290. Kathlene McCoy had a 254 game in her series for women’s high game.
The McCoys call Holiday Lanes their home house. Charlie said he enjoys No Tap an d uses it to keep sharp between seasons.
