Vermont man bowls rare 900 series

January 16, 2019

RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) — A Vermont man has become the first in the state to bowl a 900 series.

Jon Wilbur rolled the three consecutive perfect games at the Rutland Bowlerama Monday night. The 36-year-old tells WPTZ-TV he can’t wrap his head around it yet.

Once approved by the United States Bowling Congress, Wilbur’s 900 series would be the 35th in history. The first officially recognized 900 series was done in 1997 by 20-year-old Jeremy Sonnenfeld.

Wilbur has been a bowler for more than 20 years, and he says his father got him into the sport.

He says he’s “slowly starting to wake up to the fact that it happened.”
