By Marion Dunn • Tribune Sports Wri ter In ;; the ,1941 Utah Tournament in the old Ritz Lanes on 9th S. and Main, Joe Barney, Sr. bowled a 757 that stood as the tournament singles singles record for 34 years. .In the 1948:State.'Totima-: ment ,in- the same; bowling house, Doug Muir. rolled a 1978 All-Events;, total that stood as a state record for 27 years.-.', -' "••"'• • •'• ; ••:•;• ''•'''- ' In the •-, ensuing years, Barney Barney came the closest of any bowler to breaking his own record when he followed it with a 741 in 1942. '! And in 1964'Steve Buell came closest to Muir's record when he bowled a 1970, eight pins short. Ancient History So it was that those two fine performances, bowled by two of the all-time greats hi the region, stood the test of time. Until this month. This month both records fell. And both fell to the same bowler. „ Jerry Zabriskie, who has established himself as Utah's . premier bowler, wiped both marks off the book. A week' ago at the Ritz Classic Bowl,, the lefthanded star turned in one of the all-time great bowling tournament performances performances with a singles spree of 225, 298, 289 for an 812. - That took care of Barney's record. And last Sunday, bowling in the team event at the Fairmont Fairmont Bowl (owned by Doug Muir), .Jerry erased Muir's all-events record with a 612 performance in the team event for a total of 2,028. It was a brilliant effort, but it had to be. Because another Salt'Lake star, Gary Ramsey, Ramsey, also beat Muir's record by bowling an even 200b in All-Events. , And, so, the two oldest records in state tournament history went by the boards. , . Big Scores Zabriskie rolled his 812 in singles, had a • 604 in doubles and a 61.2 in team play for his record total. : Ramsey rolled a 675 singles, 615 doubles and 710 hi team play for his 2000. In his final game at the Fairmont Sunday, Ramsey needed a 222 to hit the 2000 plateau. And in the eighth frame he left the baby split and picked up only one pin. That meant he had to strike out for his 222. And he did. He went strike, strike, strike, strike in a great display of pressure bowling. The Men's tournament ended Sunday. The top finishers in. each division were: singles, scratch score listedthen handicap—Zabriskie, 812, 812; Larry Matthews, 728, 728; John Bennett, 724, 724; Mike Buttell, 683, 757; Dar- rell Axtell, 680, 738;' Maron Oveson, 662, 722; John Tibol- la, 649, 723; Bill Reinbolt, 646, 727; Jim Hahseh, 643, 730; Paul Hadley, 579; 736..
