New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 19, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas 8 A BHertWZertungB Sunday Sports Day Perfection becoming the Three 300games bowled in single week at local lanes rm By THOMAS GODLEY Sports Editor Perfect games and 700 series are beginning to be a common occurence at Comal Bowl in New Braunfels In a span of a week the lanes had three games of 300 and remarkably two of those games were bowled by the same per son Last December 72yearold Walt Wieding knocked down 12 strikes in one game to become the oldest bowler at the lanes to get a perfect score We typically get only two or three perfect games over the entire Donald Stange manager of Comal Bowl said To have that many in a week is unheard of probably for any bowling Rich Hanson 21 a San Marcos resident and league bowler accomplished twice what few bowlers ever achieve once He bowled two perfect games With scores of 300 262 and 300 he compiled a lane record threegame series of 862 on Feb 7 In the same week Dennis Buck of New Braunfels hit twelve strikes in a row to emerge as the third recipient of an honors game Adding to the highscoring barrage was 16yearold Jim my turned in a 782 series on Feb 14 The score could be among the top 10 in the nation this year for his age group Olson a sophomore at New Braunfels High School bowled a 747 series earlier that evening Ironically Hanson came to the lanes the day of his two 300 scores to watch a friend bowl Someone asked if he could sub for a teammate Hanson happened to have one of his bags handy and the I was nervous in the tenth frame of the first 300 said Hanson a computer science major at Southwest Texas State University After I shot the 262 all I was thinking about was shooting 800 Once I had the first eight strikes I knew that I had the 800 locked up During the ninth and tenth frame I was pretty relaxed After I shot the second realized what I had It was Hansons fourth career sanctioned 300 game in sev en years of bowling He currently has a 225 average at the Comal Bowl Senior All Star Bowling culminates with finals competition today From staff reports Comal Bowl host of the local 1995 Senior All Star Bowling Association

learning new dangers of head injuries NEWPORT BEACH Calif AP Dallas quarter back Troy Aikman learned that he took a risk when he played in the 1994 Super Bowl Minnesota quarterback Warren Moon left a seminar on concussions Friday planning to pursue the question of just how much protection is given up when communications gear is placed in a helmet San Francisco linebacker Gary Plummer discovered he had more than 200 mild concussions over his career Quarterback Steve Young of the 49ers also found out more about concussions although he maintains theyre just part of the game Concussions one of the more common injuries in sports also are among the least understood However the NFL and the players themselves are beginning to take more notice of the injury caused when the brain is jerked around violently in the skull and bruised Concussions apparently have not been on the rise in the NFL with a committee of specialists concluding that over the past 10 years there has been an average of about 90 concussions a season although that may not include many more mild concussions When a player suffers a concussion he usually can continue to function call plays throw the ball but his memory is temporarily affected and he essentially is performing by rote During the seminar put together by sports agent Leigh Steinberg and featuring a lineup of doctors who are authorities in the field of neurology and brain injuries a few of the NFLs top players learned more about con cussions how to detect them and what risks are involved I think head injuries are the last frontier of injuries as far as research is Steinberg said They know all about knees and elbows and other injuries but not about injuries to the One of the unanswered questions is any cumulative effect concussions may have on athletes as they grow old er an area that has not been researched he said Al Toon a wide receiver for the New York Jets had at least 12 concussions before the injuries forced him to retire in 1991 and he still feels some effects Dr Janet Chance who has many years of experience treating patients with lingering effects from concussions told the players that coming back too soon from a con cussion can be dangerous Although she said it is extreme ly rare she cited the example of a high school football player who died after suffering his second concussion in a matter of days Aikman said the worst of his six concussions came in Dallas win in the NFC title game in January 1994 He played well but he said I could never really remember what took place the entire Kept overnight in the hospital for evaluation he rejoined the Cowboys on Wednesday and played in their Super Bowl win seven days after his injury I knew I wasnt completely all right but it being the Super Bowl I decided to go ahead and he said I dont know what that says about me I might not have played if it was regularseason but I would play in the Super Asked if since he had found out that it can be dan gerous to play too soon after having a concussion he would still have played in the Super Bowl Aikman thought for a moment and said Moon said he has had three concussions including a very bad one in a 1992 game Texas sweeps
