You might say that Brian Conrad grew up in a bowling house. His mother, Debbie Conrad, has had a long, outstanding career in duckpin bowling. She recently took part in the national women's pro tour 20th anniversary invitational event. His grandfather, James "Jimmy" Wolfensberger, is a living legend in the duckpin sport and is a member of the Washington County Sports Hall of Fame. Conrad, a native Hagerstonian who now lives in Greencastle, Pa., added to the family's legacy by rolling a 300 game Oct. 3 in the Thursday Night Men's League at Nellie Fox Bowl in Chambersburg, Pa. It was Conrad's first-ever perfect game, topping his previous best of 298 (part of an 803 series)
