Although it’s getting cold outside, the alleys are heating up at Northern Aire Lanes (NAL). John Runningen rolled his first ever perfect game in Friday night’s Commercial League, Dec. 17. The left-hander’s 300 would be the third one rolled at NAL in less than two weeks.
Runningen was on lanes 15-16 for the four game set that night. He was over his 184 average every game of the night. His first three games of the night were 221, 226 and 234. The 21-year-old saved the best for last as the perfect game gave him a four-game series of 981. Runningen has been bowling at NAL since he was 5 years old and was happy to roll his first perfect game at his home lanes.
