It took Frank LaSpisa more than 30 years, but he finally can stake claim to having bowled a 300 game.
“I didn’t think it was ever going to happen, LaSpisa said.
He racked up the perfect game on Valentine’s Day while competing on the En Fuego team in the We Don’t Give a Split league at Brunswick Zone in Glendale.

Although a good deal of skill was involved in bowling the game, LaSpisa admits a little luck was also involved. “In the eighth frame, I left the 10 pin, but another one rolled over and knocked it down,” he said.
Prior to the 300 game, the best LaSpisa had bowled was 278.
He also competes locally at Rim Country Lanes on the Roundup Rollers in the Elks League.
Along with bragging rights of a lifetime for the 300 game, or 12 strikes in a row, Brunswick Zone awarded LaSpisa a souvenir plaque.
