The Greater Lexington USBC added two new members to its Hall of Fame this past week. Twin brothers Daryl and Harold Shields were elected, following their late father, Charles, who was a 1990 inductee.
The brothers began their bowling career at the old Bluegrass Lanes on South Limestone.
Both served for more than 25 years on the old Lexington Area Bowling Association board. Harold Shields was its president for the 1992-93 season, and Daryl led the organization during the 1993-94 season.
They have served as youth bowling coaches at Southland for more than 20 years, and were high school coaches when it was started as a club sport at their alma mater, Lafayette.
Never miss a local story.
Harold Shields has served as Greater Lexington USBC Youth Association manager for 30 years, and is also the manager of the Greater Lexington USBC.
Daryl Shields has one perfect game to his credit, and he served for 25 years as the president of the old Southland All-Stars League. Harold served as secretary of that league for 25 years.
The Shields' addition brings the total membership of the USBC Hall to 62 since its inception in 1980. An induction ceremony will be held in August.
