Keith Butt used to play baseball, and he used to play soccer.But now there's only one sport for the 16-year-old Dundalk High School student."Right now," he says. "Bowling is it."In fact, if all goes as he expects, he'll one day be bowling for a living in the Professional Bowlers Association -- after bowling in college, of course.To those who have watched him bowl at Country Club Lanes, they say Keith has what it takes to make it as a pro bowler.He grew up in Baltimore, but two years ago moved to Savannah, Ga., where his father, Robert Romberger, was stationed at a U.S. Army base in nearby Fort Stewart.

If you are going to have to travel to Connecticut to bowl in a duckpin tournament, it would be nice to have someone hand you $300, wouldn't it?You bet.In John Estanich's case, he had to do a little work to get the $300; he had to team up with Steve Conners and win the 10th Annual Wayne Logue Memorial Doubles tournament at Mount Airy Lanes last weekend. No problem.Estanich threw games of 156, 147 and 185 for a 488 series; Conners had games of 139, 128 and 141 for a 408 set. Add 156 handicap pins, and the total of 1,052 did the trick: first place and a $600 first prize to share.
