Bowling a perfect game is a tough feat, but to have two high school teammates do it during the same match -- back to back, on the same lanes -- is extraordinary.
La Salle High School senior Jacob Toelke rolled the second 300 game in the program’s history Thursday night -- he scored the first one two years ago -- and seconds later sophomore teammate Nolan Blessing wrapped up perfect game No. 3, WKRC reported. The two teammates shared the same lanes at Western Bowl against Oak Hills High School.
Toelke preceded his perfect game with a 235 total, while Blessing rolled a 256, the television station reported.
The Lancers improved to 11-2 after winning the match. Toelke is averaging 224.4 this season, while Blessing sports a 217.7 average, WKRC reported.
