From BINGO to Perfection

Every good bowler's nightmare is rolling a game under 100 and every bowler's dream is to bowl a 300 game.  Luke Tomasewski accomplished both feats within a week.  On Thursday, September 25th in the Thursday Men's Handicap League, he bowled a 96 in his second of three game series following a 205 start.  That's right - 096 (someone yell BINGO)!  Luke sports a 204 average, so that was 98 pins below his average.  Luke did not get rattled by the sub 100 game and just wanted to finish the night.  The following Thursday in the same league with his new Motiv Revolt (purchased and drilled at the Super Bowl Pro Shop) bowling ball, he began the night with 180 game and then went on to throw 12 consecutive strikes for his first 300 game.  He finished the night with 182 for a 662 series to help his team to a 2 - 2 split for the night.  The moral of the story - never give up!  Luke didn't.

Luke is a 19 year old IVCC student and works part-time at the Super Bowl.  He is a chemistry major and plans to attend Illinois State University next year.
