Locals enter bowling hall of fame
Three Red Wing residents were recently inducted into the Red Wing Bowling Association Hall of Fame. Harry Jacobson, Al Harteneck and Dave Bonde were the chosen recipients of the Pioneer Award, Superior Performance and Meritorious Service.
Jacobson bowled for 49 years and was a board member for a decade. He served as league secretary for 20 years and was league president for 11.
Though he no longer bowls, he earned titles in doubles and singles during his time while posting a career-high score of 278.
Harteneck was the Minnesota State Scratch Singles champion in 2005 and has 18 perfect games to his name. He has posted six 800-series with a high of 846. He's won the local league championship in singles, doubles and as a team.
Harteneck has also converted the Big 4 split, knocking down the 4-6-7-10 pins on his second throw.
Bonde's resume is equally as impressive, though in a different way. After serving in a variety of positions for the local league, he spent 22 years as its president. He was league secretary for more than 35 years and has spent more than 20 years heavily involved in the Junior League Program.
