Lo’s first career 300 came in the Badgerland Youth Bowlers Tour at Prairie Lanes. Here is video of her final strike.

Hannah Yelk holds the record for youngest girl to record a 300 in the Madison Area USBC, rolling her first at age 14 in January 2014.

Mary Lo said in a message that her daughter was using a Roto Grip MVP Pearl.

Mary, meanwhile, rolled 712 (234-233-245) using a Storm PHAZE II and CRUX PRIME.

Chavez chained games of 258, 280 and 265 for 803 for his first 800 series.

The top women's series were a pair of 737s by Christine Smith with games of 255, 266 and 216, and Yelk.

Kristy Werronen just missed a 700 with 693.

Four men rolled perfect games.
