Bowling Prodigy

Maddy got an award patch for a 450 series last weekend

He then proceeded to score a league record 222 game

Maddy in action during the NCAUSBCA tournament
Maddy is turning out to be quite the bowling talent. At the tender young age of 9, he is bowling well above his age group, so much so that coaches and house professionals have remarked that "he is the best left handed talent they have ever seen in his age group for a very long time".

Maddy took part in his first solo USBC sanctioned youth tournament last weekend. The NCAUSBCA (Nation's Capital Area United States Bowling Congress Association) Youth Championship tournament features bowlers from DC, Northern Virginia and Maryland who qualify from their local programs. Maddy qualified first in his Champs division (9-11 years of age).

In his first tournament, he had games of 202, 202 & 157 for a 561 scratch series (853 handicap series) which was more than 240 pins over his average. He has a great chance to win his age group! The results will be released next weekend, we can't to see how he did!
