 Billy O & team 


Billy Orlikowski and friends win
National Team All-Events
Most of us will never win one Eagle in our lifetime but Billy Orlikowski's team has won their 2nd eagle at this year's National Open event that was held in Baton Rouge, LA.  The  S & B Pro Shop No. 1 team won the Team All-Events with a total pin count of 9,954.  The former PBA Tour professional won his first eagle in 1999, also in team All-Events.  At that time he was bowling for Ottman Enterprises in the tournament held in Syracuse NY.  Billy helped his team to the title with a 2,038 in all events.  He had a 742 series in singles, 626 in doubles and 670 in team action.  It took 13 years to get the second one; maybe 13 is not bad luck after all.  Congratulations!!
