Throwback Thursday 11/30/17: “Pair roll 300s in final game on same night”

“Two members of the Saturday Nite Mixed League, I am sure, received a great amount of attention as they neared the end of their third game. After the final ball of the night was delivered by Paulette Guerrero and by Mike Hollon, both bowlers had recorded 300 games.

Guerrero had bowled 258 and 197 in her earlier lines, so ended with a league-leading 755. Hollon’s first two games had been 226 and 225. His 751 final score was the second best in the league that night.

About two months earlier, Hollon had bowled a 300 as the opening line of a dandy 778 series. The league’s secretary, Wanda Johnson, informed me that both of Hollon’s perfect games were bowled on the same pair of lanes at Town & Country Bowl. I’ll bet he will be anxious to return to that pair again.”
