Congratulations to Chris Guerra for bowling a career high 297 game over the weekend at the Victoria Latin Bowlers Tournament.
Chris said that her knees were shaking so much before the 12th ball that she didn't know if she would be able to roll the ball down the lane.
It's an awesome feat to start with 11 strikes, but next time, Chris, tell yourself you deserve that perfect game.
