The 2014-15 season is underway, but one of the premier women's leagues in the Greater Lexington USBC won't be returning.
The 600 Club League ended its 33-year run because of a lack of bowlers.
The league was a scratch league, and to join a woman must have rolled a sanction 600 in another league.
The league had featured the top women bowlers in Lexington for the past 30 years — including Greater Lexington USBC Hall of Famer Melinda Craig, who posted her association-leading averages in the league.
Never miss a local story.
The league had several 800 series and 300 games.
■ Kyle Gillespie became the first bowler in the Greater Lexington USBC to earn the association's new triplicate award. The award is presented for three identical games in a series.
The USBC discontinued this award a couple of years ago. However, the Greater Lexington USBC has included it in their new awards program this season now that awards are administered at the local level.
Gillespie rolled a 213 triplicate in the Around Town League at Southland on Aug. 28. He is the grandson of Greater Lexington USBC President and Hall of Famer Helen Gilkerson.
■ Travis Neal came close to the season's first award score when he rolled a 298 on Aug. 28.
Neal posted his score in the Around Town League at Southland.
