Kevin Lamping added to the history of an old Lexington league on Jan. 14.
Lamping tossed a 300 in the Knights of Columbus League at Collins Bowling Centers-Southland. The league, now bowling in its 64th season, is the oldest in the Lexington Area Bowling Association.
Lamping's is only the fourth perfect game in the league's history. He also rolled the third one a couple of years ago. Bob Vogt and Harold Carter had the first two.
The Knights of Columbus League started in the old Congress Lanes in downtown Lexington. They moved in 1968 to Newtown Lanes on Newtown Pike and then, in 1970, to Southland.
The 300 game paced a 759 series for Lamping. His teammate Rob Kovarik tossed a 290 that same night.
Jody Wafford came close to perfect on Jan. 19 at Southland, rolling a 299 in the Beltline League. Wafford's 299 paced a 707 series.
