February 14, 1993|By Glenn Small | Glenn Small,Staff Writer

George Payne, 51, of Mechanics-ville won the weekly Amateur Duckpin Tour last weekend at Fair Lanes Arbutus.

The 130-average bowler was top seed going into the championship Bowling

round. He rolled a 173 game (including bonus and handicap) against Paula Renner of Crofton, who shot a 162. Payne won $900 for the effort.

Renner won two matches to face Payne in the title match. It hadn't looked very good for her in the semifinal match.

She was down 52 pins to Elton Reaves going into the seventh frame.

But Renner tossed strikes in the seventh, eighth, ninth and 10th frames to edge Reaves, 187-171.

For second place, Renner earned $450; Fairley Poore of Glendale finished third and won $225; Reaves of Baltimore finished fourth, winning $150; and Brian Castle of Annapolis finished fifth to win $100.

The Amateur Duckpin Tour is open to men and women. It's a handicapped event.

Disney winners

You won't find Scott Rodgville and Joey Kaseman at home today.

They are in Orlando, Fla., this weekend, courtesy of Fair Lanes Corporation -- and some pretty good bowling on their part.

Rodgville and Kaseman bowled this fall in a Fair Lanes Disney tournament.

It's an annual league at all 111 Fair Lanes bowling alleys across the country. It's open to a team consisting of one adult and one youth bowler.

Kaseman, the youth, helped Rodgville win first place in their league by accumulating a 186 average. Rodgville averaged 207 for the league.

The league victory entitled them to bowl in the regional tournament, which was conducted Jan. 10 at Fair Lanes Dundalk.

Kaseman and Rodgville won that event -- and now they're in Disney World in Orlando, competing against the top 10 adult-youth bowling teams in the Fair Lanes chain.

They have a shot at winning a first-place prize of a $2,000 scholarship for Kaseman.

College tournament

Thirty-two college bowling teams met at Fair Lanes Kings Point last weekend for the 13th annual $5,000 Collegiate Team Championships.

Catonsville and Dundalk community colleges both fielded teams, but both failed to qualify for the championship matches.

In the men's division, a team of five bowlers from William Paterson College beat an Ohio State University team for first place.

On the women's side, Moorhead State College knocked off the Ohio State team to take first place.

First-place teams earned $1,200 in scholarships, and second-place teams got $600 in scholarships.

Country Club scores

His name is Tom Bowling, and he had the high scratch series last week at Country Club, a place famous for its high scores.

Bowling shot a 794 three-game series (248, 269, 277) in the Prime-timers league.

Allen Boykin, rolling in the Starfires league, shot a 783 set (288, 247, 248). Chuck Dengler shot a 290 game in the St. Mathews league. Ray Blackburn bowled a 289 game; Dennis Nukolczak, Brian Thacker and George Nassner each had a 288 game.
