(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – Every bowler dreams of rolling a perfect game, but for one Lawrenceburg High School junior that dream has become reality.
On November 13, Gunnar Anderson rolled 12 strikes in a row at Durbin Bowl in Lawrenceburg to complete his first perfect game as a bowler. Anderson tells Eagle Country 99.3 his previous best was 276.
“Honestly I was speechless,” said Anderson. “I’ve been wanting to do that since I started bowling. I was shaking real bad.”
For his efforts, Anderson will receive a trophy and a United States Bowling Congress-certified 300 ring. He will also have his name engraved on a plaque to hang on the wall at Durbin Bowl.
Durbin Bowl president Gary Rolfes says he believes Anderson is now the youngest bowler to roll a perfect game in Durbin Bowl history.
“I think its cool just to be a part of Durbin’s history,” Anderson said.
Anderson, who has been bowling for about eight years, has become somewhat of a regular at Durbin Bowl where he competes in an adult league on Mondays.
