For just the second time in almost five years, a woman won a King of the Hill event at Stardust Bowl III in Dyer.
On Friday, Kayla Riffle, who won the Post-Tribune Women’s Tournament in 2011, defeated Mike Dugan 182-165 in the championship on the 44-foot “Face It” oil pattern.
After 54 bowlers competing last week, this Friday’s oil pattern will be the 39-foot “Road Less Traveled” which has a lower volume, making it much tougher than your average 39-foot pattern.
November No-Tap starts: Stardust III started its ninth annual November 9-pin No-Tap Tournament, which runs through Nov. 25. First place pays $1,000 with an entry fee of $30 if paid the day before you bowl, or $35 on day of squad. For more details, call 322-3666.
