AHSAA Bowling: Thompson's Bodie Bubel rolls 300 to open first day of 6A-7A state championship

·1 min read

Thompson's Bodie Bubel got off to a perfect start in the Alabama High School Athletic Association bowling championships.

Bubel rolled a 300 for the Warriors on Thursday in the first game of the state tournament.

It is the third 300 score in AHSAA team competition since bowling became a championship sport in 2016.

Gadsden City's Jon Kilgo became the first bowler to score a perfect round in the championships in 2016. Hewitt-Trussville's Tristan Atwood rolled a perfect game for the Huskies earlier this season.

"It feels pretty great," Bubel said following his game. "Bowling is more of a team sport. I am just happy our team is doing great right now."

Bubel said the pressure came off of him in the 10th frame after he got a strike on his first try.

"It's just bowling," he said. "I had to just go out and bowl."
