Well, 10 pins are also left by the pros, and we're not too happy about them, either. But it's one of two thing s—e i t h e r not enough lift on the ball to create the drive when you hit the pocket, or the angle of the ball. There are two ways you leave the 10 pin. What we call the "ring 10" and the "weak 10." The weak 10 is where the six-pin falls in front of the 10 pin, and the ringing 10 is where it seems as though you've got that solid pocket hit and the three-pin goes right around the 10 pin. This is created when your ball is driving too much. It keeps right on going around, the three-pin goes in front of the six; knocking the six straight back, and continues straight through to the side and around the neck of the 10-pin. , Conseq uently, the pros make an adjustment. They will try, if they are leaving the ringing 10-pin, to move in a board and create a little better angle to where they will get the deflection of the ball. If they're leaving the weak 10-pin, they'll move to the right a little bit, and this will create a little belter angle for them to keep driving and not get as much deflection on the ball. Another nemesis is the pocket split that a lot of the bowlers seem to be leaving. It concerns the angle again and not the drive on the ball. A lot of bowlers will leave the 5-7 or the 8-10: these are the most common pocket splits, as we call them. The 5-7 and 8-10 both are angle problems. Move to the right, or work on lifting the ball a little more. In other words, maybe you got to the foul line a little fast and lost the ball; the solution is lifting the ball a litlle more, and getting more drive to the ball. (Newspaper fntcrprise Atsn.) The high-flying Highlands Junior cagers of Coaches Koy Wolfe and Ron O'Neal scored another double win Thursday night as they swepl two from Baytown Junior on the losers' home court. Both were nip and tuck contests, as O'Neal's seventh graders narrowly got by Walter Norton s improving Baylown squad 43-40. In the eight grade game, Wolfe's charges scored another three-point win 46-43 over Coach Roy Foerster's team. In other junior cage action, Horace Mann and Cedar Bayou split their games at Horace Mann's gym. Coach Ronnie Kluch's CB seventh graders scored an 18-lti overlime win iver Mann, bul in Ihe eighth irailo game. Coach Jimmy Johnson's team used a lull court jress lo their advantage and whipped Jim Fartm's Cb crew, iH-2'J.
