The girls Triple Crown winner was Tammy Fisher; the boys Triple Crown trophy went to Mike McKenzie.

Rob Rosenberger took the high game prize.

Jennifer Miele was the high series winner for the girls.

Adrienne Goodrich had the girls high game.

Bob Peccatiello was the Star of the Month for December with 104 pins over average.

Fisher, 17, lives in Hampstead and is a senior at North Carroll High. She posted a 158 average, a high game of 247 that led both the girls and the boys, and a high series of 596.

Bowling since kindergarten, Fisher was sixth in the 1990 state singles division, first in the city tournament, second in the '91 Coca Cola regional and first in the '91 city tournament. She has led the youth league with high games for three years at Hampstead.

McKenzie, 16, lives in Hampstead and is an 11th-grader at North Carroll.

"I've switched to a fingertip grip and it seems to help," McKenzie said.

It has helped enough for McKenzie to post a 180 average, a high game of 242 and a high series of 642. The Triple Crown winner was part of the team that was first in the City Tournament.

Peccatiello, 13, also attends North Carroll. Throwing a 14-pound ball, Peccatiello owns a 213 high game and a 690 series. He was Star of the Month for December with 104 pins over average.

"I love bowling here [Hampstead Lanes]," said Peccatiello, who has been bowling since 1988. "The people who run the league and keep things going do a great job. I look forward to many more years here."

Rosenberger, 14, is in the ninth grade at Franklin High School and lives in Upperco. He has been bowling since he was 9. He led the boys with a high game of 223.

Throwing a Red Rhino ball, he averages 152. He uses every inch of the approach.

Hancock is 11 years old and in the fifth grade at Manchester Elementary School and lives in Manchester. She has an 85 average and captured the award for the most improved girl bowler by increasing her average five pins.

Miele took the trophy for girls high set with a 499 series.

Goodrich lives in Hampstead and is interested in soccer, basketball and snow skiing. She has been bowling for three years and won the trophy for girls high game with a 226.

Tyler Meli bowls duckpins and lives in Hampstead. Meli won a trophy for being part of the Pee Wee team that finished second and was the Star of the Month for December by rolling 20 pins over his average.

Meli has been bowling for more than half his life. He started when he was 2 and is now 3 1/2 . There are great expectations for Meli as he matures into a 4-year-old bowler.

In the Mount Airy Lanes Saturday Youth league the Perkins brothers, David and Brian, are taking care of business.
