WKVI’s “Airwaves Rollers” took 2 out of three this week during Tuesday night action at Bowlaway Lanes. With Starke Circuit Court Judge Kim Hall subbing, Lenny Dessauer absent, and Pat Dunn in a two week slump, Tom Berg came to the rescue. Taking the “Rollers” high game patch away from Dunn with a 224 game, Berg paced the victors in game two. The WKVI Morning Man attributed his sterling performance to a wrist brace given to him by Dessauer and a pep talk from his mother Judy Collins of Indianapolis.
The USBC 200 Game Award Patch changed hands in ceremonies at the WKVI Studio Wednesday morning. In a telephone conversation with his mother (who bowls in three Indy leagues), Berg was overheard to refer to himself as the Bowlaway “Pocket-Rocket.”
Games one and three were below his capabilities with no scores mentioned. In the planning stages is a challenge three game series between the Rollers, and a
women’s team being assembled by WKVI’s Ted Hayes. The team, to be dubbed Ted’s Debs, will take on Berg and company for charity after the first of the year. This Battle of the Sexes will be well publicized on WKVI by both Berg and Dessauer.
WKVI sponsors a men’s team on Tuesday night and a women’s team on Thursday night at Bowlaway Lanes in Knox.
