Reid Newbiggin – First Career 300

A huge congratulations to Reid Newbiggin, one of our local youth bowlers, who rolled his first career 300 game in the Youth League at Laverendrye Lanes on Monday, November 25th.

Reid is a two-hander who has developed his game tremendously over the past two years.  He was on lanes 5 & 6, and said that the two lanes were playing so differently from each other.  He said that he had to use two different bowling balls, and was standing 11 boards further left on the left lane than he was on the right.  His scores were 192, 300, and 246, for a 738 series total.

Here’s his words about the perfecto:

“Finally bowled my first 300 game. Wanna say thank you to Earl Sobotkiewicz for coaching me and teaching me and to Michael Schmidt for drilling my awesome equipment and thank you to my awesome girlfriend for recording the final shots for me. Also, thanks to Storm Bowling for the Hyroad (left lane) and Motiv Bowling for the Villain Scorn (right lane)”.

Way to go Reid!  I’m sure there will be many more !
