The Terminator lorded it over in the Tuesday Night Bowling League after capping the season with a 43.5-20.5 record.
The winning squad prevailed over seven teams and had Miguel Morta, Atoy Banting, Gloria Pagarao, Joe Digno, Boy Cabate, Danny Macaspac, Ann David, and Argie Buensalido as players. The Terminator was handed the championship trophy, medals, and $400 cash during the awards ceremony last week at the Saipan Bowling Center.
Also recognized at the brief awards ceremony were runner-up Alley Gators (41-23) and third placer Natibu (36-28). Marie Gandado, May and Randy Abreau, Roger De Guzman, Dodong Eparwa, Edward Baluyan, Jimmy De Guzman, and Benjie Cruz played for Alley Gators, while Lucy Deleon Guerrero, Rudy Sablan, Paul Pangelinan, Raul Dumapit, Percy Omechelang, Robert Talavera, and Mark Halstead suited up for Natibu.
No Pressure (32.5-31.5), Anchor (30-34), Mixers (28-36), Nice Try (24-40), and Supertech, Inc. (21-43) were the other competing teams.
Nice Try missed the Top 3 finished in the final rankings, but ruled the high scratch and high handicap game categories for recording 918 and 1,127 pins, respectively. No Pressure was second in both categories with its 909 and 1,096. Nice Try also had the best scores in the high handicap series with 3,101, beating Anchor (3,060) anew. Anchor then foiled No Pressure’s bid for a sweep in the high score awards after registering 2,529 in the scratch series against the 2,517 of Natibu.
In the individual awards, No Pressure’s Georgia Satoshi won three—the high scratch game (263), handicap (308), and handicap series (703). Janice Camacho topped the high scratch series with her 580 pins and was second in the scratch game (222). Gloria Omechalang placed runner-up both in the scratch series (572) and handicap series (701).
In the men’s division, No Pressure’s Zack Cruz and Alley Gators’ Roger De Guzman split the four individual awards. Cruz won in the high scratch series (620) and handicap series (689), while De Guzman prevailed in the high scratch game (259) and handicap game (282).
In the high average category, Talavera took the top honors in the men’s after averaging 177.13, while Janice Camacho got the same award in the women’s division with her 161.15.
With her three individual awards, Satoshi was named most improved player in the women’s division, while Anchor’s Donado Basid got similar recognition in the men’s.
