CEBU CITY, Philippines — Veteran keglers shone in last Sunday’s Sugbuanon Bowlers United (SUGBU) Bowling Shootout tournament at the SM Seaside City Cebu Bowling Center. 

Rey Velarde emerged as champion among the 16 keglers that vied in the four-game series tournament. 

Velarde 806 pinfalls

Velarde, a long-time bowler finished with 806 total pinfalls. His two 200-pinfall games in rounds two and four became his key in topping the tournament despite only having 10-handicap points.

Senior bowlers Joe Garces and Rene Ceniza captured the second and third places, respectively.

10 handicap points

Meanwhile, Ceniza, a former monthly champion scored 745 pinfalls. Ceniza toppled 202 pins in the opening round which served as his best game in the tournament. He did this by only having 10 handicap points. 

On the other hand, Ted Convocar and Roger Asumbrado settled for fourth and fifth places, respectively. 

Convocar tallied 745 pinfalls, while Asumbrado had 724 pinfalls.
