Agapito Notches Another 300


  Twenty-two year-old Monticello keggler Pedro Agapito III has the talent to be listed with the top amateur bowlers in the tri-county area.  He scored his 19th perfect 300 game on March 7th in the Tuesday Mixed Firefighter league at Kiamesha Lanes.

  The series attached to this 300 was 259, 254 for a nice 813 series.  In the 300 game all balls were in the pocket.

  This was his 13th 800 plus series

  This 300 and 813 were scored with an IQ Tour Pearl bowling ball on lanes 9-10.

  His Tuesday team is the Rock Hill Liquor squad and he bowls with team mates Tola Deylii, Kevin Stackhouse and George Dye.

    Agapito has been bowling for 12 years and presently bowls in both the Tuesday Mixed Firefighters league and the Monday Men's league, both at Kiamesha Lanes.     

  He presently maintains a 236 average for all leagues.

Bowling Tip
By Mike Luongo

  How about it bowlers, ever think about reviving your game.

  Let's take two important elements of the game and remember about the physical aspect of the game.
  The two elements....accuracy and action and that torque was at one time an important part of the term action.
  The game over the years has changed , accuracy is important but the action aspect is a different story.

  Much of the ball action today is built into the bowling balls by the use of sophisticated weight blocks, dynamic balancing and modifying the coverstock with more or less porosity as the lane condition demands.

  The modern bowling all has been a boon to bowlers young and old. Trust me, no matter how talented you are, you can't compete using old antiquated equipment in today's environment.
  The tip.....see you local pro shop for the modern style bowling ball.
