Lee Brosius of Odenton knows a little bit about bowling.
Using a 16-pound Blue Hammer, Brosius was third in the scratch doubles with his partner, Dave Hart, and also earned cash in the scratch singles, in the Hanover (Pa.) Bowling Centre's tournament, which ran May through Sept. 30.
On the weekend of Sept. 29 and 30, he had the top singles series score of 859. And he teamed up with Wilson Rowe that same weekend to fire a 640 set to go with Rowe's 614 for a total of 1,254 and 10th place in the tournament.
"Hanover's condition was tough but fair, the kind of conditions that I prefer," he said.
The name Brosius may ring a bell with some bowlers. Lee's dad was the late Ed Brosius, who was inducted into the American Bowling Congress Hall of Fame. It's easy to see that Lee received the right kind of early bowling training. He was carrying a 150 average when he was 7 years old.
In the past 35 years, he's improved on that average. It's 203 now on one league a week, the Monday Men's Continental at Fair Lanes Laurel, where again the lane condition is very much to Brosius' liking -- tough but fair.
Brosius has thrown two 300 games and an 805 series.
