Local bowling: Galloway’s Lynch rolls way onto top 10 list

Updated

Galloway Township’s Debbie Lynch bowled her first big series of the season Tuesday, a 726 at Strike Zone Lanes in Egg Harbor City. The series put Lynch in third place on The Press 200 Club women’s top 10 list.

Lynch’s score was in the Tuesday Mixed League, and it had games of 259, 247 and 220. It was the first 700 of the season for the 56-year-old five-time former 200 Club women’s regular-season champion. The first two games had no open frames, but the 220 had opens in the first and 10th frames.

“I was so excited to bowl that well,” said Lynch. “It felt pretty great.”

Lynch has had back problems this season but has felt better for the past month.

“I’ve gone back and forth from a 14(-pound ball) to a 15 because of my back,” Lynch said. “I went lighter (using the 14-pounder) and it helped, but I didn’t get the carry. I started feeling better and went back to the 15. My average has gone back up.”

Rob Smith of Pine Hill topped the men with a 764 series last Monday in the Big Money League at King Pin Bowling in Egg Harbor Township. Smith put together games of 258, 279 and 227.

His top score of 802 finished tied for 25th place last year on the 200 Club men’s regular season.
