I got 1st!
« on: February 10, 2009, 11:11:35 AM »
Hey all its me again. Saturday the 7th I bowled in a Bowl Swami tounament for Michigan High School bowling. I rolled with our JV team despite me having the highest average of both Varsity and JV. The tournament started with 3 singles games. My first game I shot 250. Second game I shot 255. And third game I shot 201. After every game we had to change lanes so this was over a course of 3 sets of lanes. Anyways I ended up winning with a 706, which is only my 2nd 700 series ever. My other 7 came during a Saturday morning league this year. Back to what I was talking about though the 2nd place guy had shot 641 and was a Junior. He said I was really good and when a couple of the medal placing guys asked me what year i was because they hadn't seen me before I told them I was a Freshman and they were impressed.
  A kid I bowl with, Anthony Mazza, his dad is John Mazza, former PBA tour member and the 2nd person ever to pick up the 7-10 split. Well Anthony and I have become very good friends and he introduced me to his dad and I just about had a heartattack! I've seen the 7-10 videos and when I saw Mr. Mazza I knew it was him. He congratulated me on my series and he said he was scouting me and he would be in touch as far as if I need some advice I could call and talk to him. This is the first professional bowler I've ever met and John Mazza is by far one of my bowling idols!

Good bowling!
What town are you from?
If I recall correctly Mr. Mazza was in the Bay City area for a while.
I went to high school in Bay City myself.
