Father and son set scoring pace at National Bowling Stadium


    United States

    Two bowlers reach 50 years; two exciting moments happen live on BowlTV

    2013USBCOCScottDerekHartnell.jpgScott Hartnell of Kenosha, Wis., and his son, Derek (pictured left, l-r), shared the spotlight as the Regular Doubles leaders at the United States Bowling Congress Open Championships with a 1,341 effort at the National Bowling Stadium on March 9.

    Derek Hartnell, a two-time All-American at Newman University and the Most Valuable Player for the 2009-10 collegiate bowling season, led the doubles surge with a 739 series, while Scott contributed a 602 set. Bo Johnson and Doug McHugh of Huron, S.D., previously held the lead with 1,300.

    "It's a lot of fun," said Scott, a 50-year-old right-hander and 28-time USBC Open Championships participant. "Now that Derek lives in Kansas, and I live in Kenosha, it's a nice five days together. We don't get to see each other as much, so it's enjoyable to get to bowl together and spend some time together."

    2013USBCOCGregRoberts.jpgDerek, a 25-year-old right-hander, added a 640 series in singles and 562 team for a 1,941 total, which is ninth in Regular All-Events. Scott finished with 634 in team and 621 in singles for 1,857. Richard Thomas of Middleton, Wis., leads Regular All-Events with 2,051.

    In Regular Singles, Greg Roberts (right) of Oshkosh, Wis., bounced back from a disappointing doubles set and posted games of 279, 258 and 234 to move into the top singles spot with a 771 series March 12. He had 552 in team and 467 in doubles for a 1,790 all-events total.


    Two bowlers reach 50 years at USBC Open Championships

    2013USBCOCWayneHutchinson.jpgWayne Hutchinson (left photo, right) of Franklin Park, Ill., and Robert Shelightner of Port Ewen, N.Y., recently became the 156th and 157th bowlers to celebrate 50 years of participation at the USBC Open Championships.

    2013USBCOCRobertShelightner.jpgHutchinson, 74, started his tournament career at the 1959 event in St. Louis, while Shelightner (right), 77, made his debut two years later in Detroit. The two are the first of nine bowlers who will make the ceremonial march down Center Aisle at the NBS this year. To commemorate the milestone, each received a plaque, chevron and diamond lapel pin.

    Along with this year's 50-Year Club inductees, Maynard Johnson of Crystal, Minn., will compete for the 60th time, while USBC Hall of Famer Jimmy Schroeder of Tonawanda, N.Y., and Judd Hall of Carrollton, Ohio, will make their 65th Open Championships appearances.


    Two exciting moments happen live on BowlTV

    2013USBCOCLegendofDungHo.jpgThere will be more than two dozen live stream broadcasts from Reno this year, and the first two live events each provided some excitement for BowlTV viewers.

    2013USBCOCJasonNarlock.jpgOn March 7, The Legend of Dung Ho of Cerritos, Calif. (left), put together games of 969, 1,023 and 1,122 for a 3,114 total to cruise past previous leader, Sport Bowl Pro Shop of Middleton, Wis., which held the top spot with 3,038.

    Two days later, first-timer Jason Narlock (right) of Bronson, Mich., a 46-year-old right-hander, made a run at history as he rolled a 299 game. A 7-pin on his final offering kept him from the first perfect game of the 2013 event at the NBS. His doubles partner, former Professional Bowlers Association standout Curtis Odom, rolled the first 300 of the 2011 tournament, also at the NBS.


    A look ahead

    The third live stream broadcast of the 2013 USBC Open Championships will take place March 18 at 10 a.m. EDT as 2007 Regular Singles champion Chip Aki of Arlington, Texas, hits the lanes at the National Bowling Stadium for doubles and singles.
