When taking the lanes Monday atNorthern AireinFergusFalls, Olivia Anderson went about her business like she usually does, picking up her Venom Shock bowling ball and rolling it down the lane. But on this occasion, everything was nearly perfect.Andersonrolled games of 267, 236 and 253 to finish with a 756 series.
That feat was impressive for a junior bowler, but what was more impressive is that not only did she record the highest series for a junior bowler, she also broke the women’s high series at the lanes.
“The whole time I didn’t realize I had broken the women’s high series,” Anderson said. “Luke (Loeffler) told me after I was done. It was pretty exciting and I have a feeling of accomplishment.”
The previous women’s high series was 736, rolled by Jenny Thunselle.
Loeffler believes that Anderson only had one open frame in the entire 36-frame series.
Anderson has been bowling since she was 4 and has been a key member in the FergusFalls co-ed and girls bowling teams the past few seasons.
