First Junior Bowler to Roll 300
Josh Thunselle became the first Junior bowler at Northern Aire Lanes to roll a perfect game. He was bowling on lanes 1-2 with teammates Zach Thom and Zane Bugbee while doing a league make-up for
Saturday Morning Jr. League. Josh Started off with a 224 and 217 which were nothing out of the norm, just above his 201 average. The final game of the series, Josh rolled 12 consecutive
strikes for a perfect 300 game. His three game series totaled 741.
With a name like Thunselle; it’s obvious Josh is no stranger to bowling. Josh is not the only Thunselle to ever roll a 300. Josh’s father Scott, recorded a perfect game earlier
this season at NAL during the First Nighters League. It doesn’t end there, bowling really is in his blood!. Kristi, Josh’s mother, was the previous women’s record holder at NAL with a
high series of 708 and has women’s high game for 11-12’ season at 267.
Josh has been rolling a bowling ball for most of his life. He is a senior at FFHS this year and has been bowling Jr. Leagues since first grade. Josh has also been a driving force on
the high school bowling team for the past three seasons. Josh was the team’s leading bowler each season leading them to three consecutive state tournaments where they finished 3rd as a team in
2011. Josh was ranked 46th out of more than 1600 bowlers in the state his senior year. He credits much of his success to his family as well as Coach Dean Paulson of the FFHS Bowling team.
