The infamous 300 game came for Paulson on game two as he finished the night with a 914 series. Few realized Dean had such a string of strikes going on Wed as he was bowling on lanes 9-10. After nailing the final shot and the many cheers, Dean soon had several high fives coming his way. He was using a Motiv ‘Venom Shock’ to take down the pins. Dean’s 300 is the third at NAL this season as Jamie Johnson rolled two just a few weeks apart earlier in the season.
Dean is no stranger to the lanes, bowling since the age of four. He is currently in three leagues at Northern Aire Lanes, and spends several hours each week at the lanes. However, only half that time he is actually rolling a ball. As head coach of the Fergus Falls High School bowling team, he spends a majority of lane time helping the kids develop their game. Wednesday night was Dean’s third time career 300 game, the most recent of which came in October of 2013.

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.
