UPDATED 8/30/2021 – We are down to our final week of competition in the 111th edition of the Petersen Classic, Joseph Beck (Oregon, OH) still leads the Pete Singles with his 1,635 score.

Even with all of the high-powered squads hitting the Pete lanes this weekend, we only had two bowlers break into the top 10 spots of the Petersen Singles category. Bradley Novak (Brookfield, IL) rolled a 1,589 to claim the 10th place position, while past Pete Champ Tom Adcock (Decatur, IL) posted a 1,598 to tie Dean Billings (Rootstown, OH) for 6th place in Singles.

Time is winding down for the 2021 Petersen, but we still have limited openings for small groups and individuals during our final week. Don’t get shut out of this year’s Pete!
