GUY SERENO WINS 2 EVENTS AT HERRILL

Posted On: October 31, 2016

New Hyde Park, NY:  Guy Sereno, a 40 year old Solar City Field Technician, won both the LIGBT scratch and handicap tournaments at Herrill Lanes. The handicap victory gave Guy his second LIGBT title, worth $1,200, and he did it in grand fashion; shooting a 310 (290 scratch) in the final shootout. Finishing in second place was Robert Rowe III, Edgewater, MD, with a 286 earning him $600. Rounding out the top 4 were third place finisher Jarret McMillan, Jamaica, NY with a 273 worth $400 and fourth place finisher James Marino, Lindenhurst, NY with a 253 worth $300.

The final shootout began with Guy down 47 pins due to the handicap difference but he quickly made up the shortfall with a long string of strikes. Guy left a blowout 7 pin in the first frame and struck the rest of the way. Jarret was bowling well until he opened in the 7th frame which hurt his title hopes. Robert bowled almost as well as Guy but a 4-6 split in the 6th frame made his title hopes difficult. Robert still could have won the match if Guy had opened in the final frame and he doubled. But when Guy struck in the tenth the match was over as he won his second tournament of the day and a total of $1,780.

The Herrill Lanes handicap event drew a great crowd of 128 entries, advanced 22 bowlers to the finals, and paid out $5,220.
