Ticknor strikes again in tenpin tournament

MIDDLETOWN, DEL. — Ten-year-old Abigail Ticknor of Millington bowled her first-ever 200 game (206) and a lifetime-best series of 476 on Nov. 18 to finish fifth of 36 bowlers in Division 2 singles in a Northern Delaware USBCA youth tournament held over two weekends at Mid-County Lanes in Middletown.

Ticknor bowled a 168 first game, a 102 second game and then her lifetime-best 206 in the third game, throwing six strikes and picking up three spares.

In that final game, she bowled a turkey (three consecutive strikes) across the seventh through ninth frames, then opened the 10th frame by knocking down eight pins before picking up the 6-10 spare. That gave her a score of 199 before her final ball, which felled seven pins for the 206 total.

The tournament was scored with handicaps and split in divisions by averages. Bowlers with averages of 140 or above bowled in Division 1; all others bowled in Division 2.

Ticknor’s total score with handicap was 786, good for fifth overall in the division and second amongst girls competing in the division.

Ticknor and Saige Boone, one of her teammates in the Mid-County Youth League, also competed in Division 2 doubles, placing 14th with a total score (with handicap) of 1,344.

Boone was seventh in Division 2 singles with a total score with handicap of 750.

Ticknor and Boone were the two highest-finishing Mid-County bowlers in Division 2 singles.
