Bowling Bulletin: Red Holez leads Mix & Mingle League

McALESTER — Your weekly update of bowling league action at Great Balls of Fire in McAlester. Data submitted by league coordinator Rita Sanders before league action Wednesday.

At 31-1, Red Holez ought to be blowing out the Thursday-night Mix & Mingle league. But so far Team 1 has hung in there despite Red Holez’ success, and one bad week from Red Holez could easily push Team 1 to first.

That bad week didn’t happen last week, however, as Red Holez went 3-1 against Bednarck. But in going 4-0 against Who Gives a Split?, Team 1 actually shaved one point off Red Holez’ lead and now trails Red Holez by just two points.

Much of Red Holez’ success comes from Heather Wood, who leads all women in the league with 5,548 total pins.

“We’ve been bowling for years,” Wood said Thursday. “We’re just out here to have fun, but we like to win. We’re very aggressive players.”
