Mike Hilvers and Jim Cantrell both rolled a perfect game recently to bring the season total to 48. That tops the 46 bowled last season.

Hilvers rolled his in the Strike Force League at Collins Bowling Centers-Southland on March 28. The 300 paced a 730 series.

Hilvers rolled his 300 on the 65th anniversary of the first 298 game in Lexington. Olin Jones rolled a 298 at Congress Lanes on March 28, 1948. The Congress Lanes were on Main Street above Barney Miller's.

Cantrell also rolled his score at Southland in the James R. Wafford Memorial League on April 1. The score paced a 709 series.

Hall of Fame member dies

The local bowling community lost a member of its Hall of Fame. Mary Burry, who was inducted in 1988, died on March 28. She served as president of the Lexington Women's Bowling Association from 1974-89. She was the first person honored with the old LWBA's highest award, the Woman Bowler of the Year, in 1987.
