A perfect 300 Baker game was the major factor that earned Glen Este’s varsity boys bowling team first place in the Fort Ancient Valley Conference (FAVC) Tournament that took place at Northwest Lanes, on lucky Saturday, Jan. 13.
A Baker game consists of the five team members each bowling two frames, one and six, two and seven, three and eight, four and nine, and five and ten, respectively.
The quintet of Trojans – senior co-captains Kevin Briggs and Matt Clyburn, junior Ryan Leinberger, and sophomores Dustin Brinson and Mike Jones each rolled two strikes when their opportunity arrived.
Kathy Demarko, Glen Este head coach, scanned a seven-year history of records and contacted high school bowling authorities in the area and none can recall or find any documentation of any records of a previous 300 Baker game being accomplished
Brinson bowled the top series in the tournament with a 724. He and teammate Briggs (670 total) earned all-tournament recognition.
