Allen sets house and city records

Allen sets house and city records

August 22, 2007|By LARRY YANOS

Tenpin bowler Cameron Allen set a house and city record with an 820 set at Dual Lanes in Hagerstown.

The 17-year-old Allen tossed games of 288, 266 and 266 to set the record in the Major/Senior Boys Division.

The previous record was 806, set by Jimmy Young on Oct. 26, 2002.

"It's my highest game and set ever," Allen said. "I really wasn't aware I was breaking the city and house record."

The right-handed Allen, also a member of the South Hagerstown High School football team, bowls tenpins twice a week.

In the 28 game, he started with 10 straight strikes.

"I hooked the 11th ball too much and hit the head pin," the right-handed bowler Allen said.

The Hagerstown resident will receive a plaque from Dual Lanes and an award from the United States Bowling Congress.
