f you like to bowl but don't want
to join a league, the Metropolitan
Detroit B'nai B'rith Bowling
Association has a solution.
"We're always looking for inde-
pendent bowlers',' said MDBBBA
President Howard Waxer. "Any B'nai
B'rith member can join our associa-
tion for a $10 fee and be eligible for
our awards and local and interna-
Three of this season's MCBBBA
local tournaments are in the books.
Larry Schecter won the Fall
Eliminator; Mark Feinberg and
Dennis Sobol were the Chanukah
Mystery Doubles champs and Ivan
Fenyvesi and Sy Zate won the
Windsor Doubles title.
Four 299 games were bowled in
league play during the first half
of the season. Mitch Fenkel and
Phil Horowitz from Pisgah, Dave
Reiger from Brotherhood-Eddie
Jacobson and Mike Rott from
Morgenthau L'Chayim-Zeiger Gross
each came oh-so-close to a perfect
300 score. Lyle Schaefer of Pisgah
had the highest series, an 803.
Phil Ross, a Brotherhood-Eddie
Jacobson 173 bowler, bowled a 290.
It's a nice honor, but it's getting monot-
onous. Bowler Sarah Nagel made the
All-Greater Oakland Northern Lakes
Conference honorable mention list for
the third consecutive season.
"Next year, I want the real deal.
I want to make the All-Conference
team," said Nagel, a junior at Waterford
Kettering High School.
Greater Oakland Northern Lakes
bowlers earn conference honors based
on how well they perform in conference
competition. It isn't a subjective pro-
cess. Nagel's 180.82 average this season
was one of the highest in the confer-
ence, and so was her 237 high game
rolled at Airway Lanes in Waterford.
"I've been bowling at Airway since
I was 3, so I'm real used to the lanes
there," Nagel said.
Nagel won two gold medals and one
silver medal in the girls ages 15-16
division at last summer's JCC Maccabi
Games in Phoenix. It was her fourth
year as a member of the Maccabi team.
4 Not Enough
It almost was a heck of a story. After
scoring eight goals all season, Detroit
Country Day hockey player Ben
Rosenfeld scored four goals in the
Yellowjackets' state tournament opener.
Unfortunately, Country Day
dropped a 6-5 double-overtime
heartbreaker to Dearborn Heights
Crestwood in a Division 3 pre-regional
game at UM-Dearborn Arena, and
Rosenfeld's high school hockey career
came to a sudden end.
"Believe it or not, Ben could have
had a couple more goals in that game,'
said Country Day coach Chuck Carvey.
"I couldn't be happier for him. It was a
nice reward" forall of his hard work."
This was Rosenfeld's fourth season.
He played defense as a freshman and
then forward. The Huntington Woods
resident finished with 12 goals and 10
assists in 25 games this year. Those
numbers could have been higher, but
he spent several games on a checking
line because he was such a reliable
The loss to Crestwood left Country
Day with a 14-8-3 record. They were
state-ranked early in the season.
Rosenfeld hopes to earn nine var-
sity letters before he leaves Country
Day. He's gotten four in hockey, two
in football, one in baseball and one
in lacrosse, and he's playing lacrosse
this spring. He was the quarterback of
Country Day's state playoff-qualifying
football team last fall.

Detroit Red Wings defenseman
Mathieu Schneider, the highest
scoring Jewish player in NHL history,
reached a milestone when he scored
his 200th career goal during a 4-3 vic-
tory over Nashville at Joe Louis Arena.
Schneider was given a standing
ovation by the sellout crowd and a pat
on the shoulder by fellow defense-
man Nicklas Lidstrom, who scored his
200th career goal four days earlier. I —
