RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas –
The 12th Mission Support Group bowling team was crowned champion of the Randolph Intramural League during an awards ceremony May 24 at the bowling center.
12th MSG ended the two-year reign of the Air Education and Training Command Computer Support Squadron, which finished second this year.
"It was definitely a team effort," said Chris Goelz, 12th MSG team captain. "Everybody had to pitch in to do it."
He said the team peaked at the right time, bowling its best in the last three months of the season.
The MSG team, composed of Goelz, Doc Bolduc, Paulo Gonzalez, Will Greer II, Marcus Griffin-Hamilton, Rachael Kiernan, Kirk Mason, Michelle Wiesmann and Woody Woodfork, finished with 166 points won while AETC CSS followed with 155 points won.
Col. James Sohan, 12th Mission Support Group commander, presented trophies to the first and second place teams.
Individual awards were presented to Steve Barinque for high average (218) and high series scratch (780); Sheila Lawrence for high average (202) and high series scratch (693); Bolduc for high game scratch (a perfect game of 300); Lisa Barker for high game scratch (289); Debbie Cervera for high series handicap (740) and most improved; Mel Hills for high series handicap (820); Sharon Rector for high game handicap (300); Jim Miller for high game handicap (a perfect game of 300 with handicap); and Fred Moses for most improved.
The Randolph Intramural League, which competes on Monday nights, consists of teams affiliated with organizations at Randolph. It is open to male and female military and civilian personnel representing all age groups.
"It has everyone from the youngest Airman to people who have retired once and maybe even twice," Bill Baker, Randolph Bowling Center manager, said. "They all have a good time on Monday night. It promotes team building and gives them a chance to relax."
The 32-week season starts in late August, he said. Five players from each team bowl three games per week.
The Bowling Center offers 11 leagues, seven days a week, including a youth league on Saturday morning, three women's leagues three mornings a week and a league for seniors on Friday morning. Mr. Baker said signups for the next intramural league begin in July.
