Barton's Sherman rolls 300 for Notre Dame
Alex Sherman of Barton started his day off with a perfect game for Notre Dame, rolling a 300 at Paramount Lanes in Elmira on Wednesday afternoon.
It was the first 300 of the season and Sherman's first award score ever thrown.
Sherman followed it up with a 253 and a 238 for a 791 series, just nine pins short of an award series of 800. The 791 was the highest series thrown in the IAC this season.
Athens' Mathew Dieg stayed with Sherman strike-for-strike in the first game, but came up one strike short with a 279 game and followed with a 182 and a 173 for a 634 series, while Joel Seidman threw games of 212 back-to-back and added a 154 for a 578.
"As a coach I watched Alex stand and throw shot after shot solid in the pocket," Notre Dame coach Ray Sherman, also Alex's father, said. "As a father in the tenth I'm not sure who was more nervous me or him. He walked up there and went shot for shot in the tenth just as solid as the first nine frames. After that he started off the next game with the next six strikes. 18 in a row. That was impressive."
Notre Dame rolled to the 4-0 sweep over Edison, with the Crusaders rolling 1,080 in the first game, 999 in the second and 874 for a 2,953, while Edison shot 821, 963 and 786 for a 2,570.
