Kenny Schaszberger

Latest bowling accomplishment: Rolled a triplicate 256 for a 768 series at Suburban Bowlerama.

My reaction to the 256 triplicate: I was surprised that I did it. I was aware I had the opportunity, but I wasn't trying to roll a 256 in the last game. I know rolling a triplicate is unusual, particularly one this high.

I started bowling: At Lion Bowl when I was 8 or 10 years old.

Bowler I have learned the most from: My brother, Matt.

Part of my game I'm working on improving: Picking up the 7-pin.

Best bowling advice I ever received: Improve my attitude.

Most memorable bowling moments: My two perfect games and winning the York Area Handicap Doubles Tournament with Kim Schmuck.

Most non-bowlers don't realize: How difficult the sport is.

Advice I would give someone just starting to bowl: Have a lot of patience and don't give up.

Future goal: Roll an 800 series.

Note: Suburban Bowlerama will play host to the York Area Handicap Doubles Tournament, at 1 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 6. The format is scotch doubles. The handicap is 90 percent of 460. The entry fee is $45 per team. Bowlers who compete in five of the seven monthly tournaments will be eligible to win a 42-inch flat-screen television. For information, call (717) 848-1632.
