2015 Mass. state tournament Day 5

Sean Richard got things going in doubles in the morning with games of 289, 276, and 256 for an 824 series, but it would be the 3:30 PM squad’s team event, which Sean was also part of, that would highlight the day:

“Richard’s Warriors”, with a lineup of Brian Gaskill, Jim Ferguson, Brian Egan, Bob Hamilton, and Sean Richard, put up a 1,309 third game, thanks in part to a 300 game from Ferguson and a 297 from Richard, which helped them post a 3,662 series, which was just one pin shy of the state tournament record by “The Winers” in the 2010 tournament at AMF Auburn Lanes. The video of Jim’s last strike is below.

Since I had the opportunity, I also took the photo below (pardon the blurred image):

A meeting of the old state record holder and the new one. You know the man on the left, and Jim Lovewell is on the right.

Actually, I could have made it three record holders in the same photo, as Shirley Major, the former women’s state record holder, was also bowling in the squad.
