Angie Colip: Hall of Fame nominations underway

Nominations for both men and women are being taken for the Anderson Bowling Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame committee consists of Lonnie Fish, head chairman, Jim Backus, Bud Stewart, Rozella Baldwin and Phyllis Boze. Nomination forms can be acquired and turned in to any association member. Deadline for entries is May 1.

This will be the first year for a combined Hall of Fame banquet. The association is trying to combine the traditions of both the men and the women to respect our past. They may even create some new traditions as one united association to carry us into the future for generations to come.

Another 300 game was rolled this week. Perfection was found in the second game of the 11:00 Youth Majors league on Saturday morning. Matt Robey found his first 300 game.

Robey rolled a solid ball into the pocket on 11 of his 12 balls. The sixth frame caused a few to hold their breath as the ball came up a little high, but in the end all the pins fell for a strike on the scoreboard. As Robey started the third game, adrenaline was high, but he finished the morning off with a nice 705 series. Congratulations, Matt!

This weekend is also the intercollegiate bowling sectionals. With only four sectionals to accommodate thousands of collegiate bowlers the competition is as tough as it gets. These sectionals, located in Smyrna, Tenn.; Allentown, Pa.; Fort Worth, Texas, and Addison, Ill., all lead to the collegiate championships held in Reno, Nev., this year.

Those teams from Indiana competing in the men’s division will be Ball State and Vincennes in Smyrna, Indiana University is in Addison, Marion is in Fort Worth, and Purdue is traveling to Allentown.

The Marion women will be in Fort Worth also. I will keep you informed of the outcome.

Should the Pacers match Portland's offer sheet to center Roy Hibbert?

Yes, Hibbert is important to the team and the community
No, four years and $58 million is too much
Not sure, I like Hibbert but think the money could be better spent elsewhere
