Comal bowl results
By THOMAS GODLEY
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 woe bowled by the same person.
Last December, 72-year-old Walt Wieding knocked down 12 strikes in one game to become the oldest bow ler at the lanes to get a perfect score.
"We typically get only two or three perfect games over the entire year," Donald Stange, manager of Comal Bowl, said. "To have that many in a week is unheard of, probably for any bowling lane."
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, three-game 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 high-scoring barrage was 16-year-old Jimmy Olson,who turned in a 782 series on Feb. 14. The score could be among the top IO 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 lanfes 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 decided/'what the heck."
"I was nervous in the tenth frame of the first 300 game." 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 300,1 realized what I had done."
It was Hanson's fourth career sanctioned 300 game in seven years of bowling. He currently has a 225 average at the Comal Bowl.

cussion can be dangerous. Although she said it is extremely 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 game.’’
Kept overnight in the hospital for evaluation, he rejoined the Cowboys on Wednesday and played in their Super Bowl win seven days alter his injury.
“I knew I wasn’t completely all right, but it being the Super Bowl, I decided lo go ahead and play.” he said. “I don’t know what that says about me. I might not have played if it was rcgular-season, but I would play in the Super Bowl."
Asked if, since he had found out that it can he dangerous to play too soon after having a concussion, he would still have played in the Super Bowl, Aikman thought for a moment and said, "Sure "
Moon said he has had three concussions, including a very bad one in a 1992 game.
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Dallas quarterback 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 they 're 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 arc 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 rn the NFL, with a committee of specialists concluding that, over the past IO 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 me ball — but his memory is temporarily affected and he essentially is performing by role.
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 NFL’s top players learned more about concussions. how to detect them and what risks are involved.
“I think head injuries are the last frontier of injuries as far as research is concerned.’’ Steinberg said. ‘They know all about knees and elbows and other injuries, but not about injuries to the head."
One of the unanswered questions is any cumulative effect concussions may have on athletes as they grow older. 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 conNOW OPEN!
