-Tennessee Man Is Oldest 300 Shooter

04/01/2001 - Bowling Headquarters
      Berry Thomas of Nashville, Tenn., became the oldest person to roll a 300 game March 26 when he achieved the feat 12 days short of his 88th birthday.

      Thomas rolled the perfect game in the Monday Senior League at AMF Pla-Mor Lanes. At age 87 years, 11 months old, he beat the previous oldest 300 shooter, Joe Dean, who was 87 years, 6 months old when he had 300 in Columbus, Ohio, on June 15, 1999.

      "When I got to the 12th ball I got a little nervous," Thomas said. "But I made it all right. My son (Danny) has had a few 300s and I was hoping to get one before I quit bowling."

      It was the first career 300 for Thomas, who said he's been an avid bowler since 1939.
