The Southern Oregon Seniors has been a small club, with 25-35 members. We are very fortunate to enjoy some great commaradarie as well as competition. The following bios are some of our elite players whom we would like to share some of their history with you.

 

jerome nina

Jerome and Nina Lee
Jerome Lee is the Granddaddy of them all. Member of the Medford Bowling Hall of Fame, Oregon State Athletics Hall of Fame, All time money winner at the Senior High Rollers, etc.
Although his career is not as celebrated as say Marshall Holman and Dave Husted, two of best Oregon has had represented in the Professional Bowlers Tour, he could at any time go toe to toe with the best of the best. He still owns the State Record in Singles with an 833 that was bowled in 1975, before equipment became so advanced. Jerome is also noted as a top notch Chess player, and likes to dabble in Poker as well. An honor to have him as a member in both the Senior and Regular All Star Organizaions.

 

bob korth

Bob Korth
Bob Korth hails from southern Oregon and writes the Ask Bob column for several paper publications across the country. Although a USA certified Bronze level coach, more than anything Bob is a very accomplished bowler. He was recently recognized by the ABC for being the only man to shoot 800 series in 5 straight decades. His first was in Seattle Washington in 1965. He used a Brunswick TracMaster, a hard rubber ball. Bob was able to shoot an 824 series on June 3rd 2001 to take the Oregon state all events record away from Marshall Holman. Bob’s 9 game total was 2316. Bob has carried a 200 average for 40 straight years and he has done it both right and left handed. Bob also won the Senior High Roller in August 1998, where he defeated Jerome Lee. Medford Oregon went 1-2 that year. First place was a nice $30,000. We are very proud and honored to call Bob Korth one of the best the Region has had to offer.

chuck eilenberger

Chuck Eilenberger

The Eilenberger name is well established in the Rogue Valley. Chuck has cemented his name into the list of great bowlers from this area. A member of the Medford Hall of Fame, he has numerous All Star Titles and Senior All Star Titles and a SO Masters Title as well. Chuck is one of those bowlers who excel at “crunch” time. He is one of the best at making the shot when it counts. He retired from a long career at Boise Cascade in 2009, and now has time to focus on keeping his game at a high level.
The Southern Oregon All Stars and Senior All Stars are proud to have this legend in both organizations.
