Nothing but strikes

Cody Schmitt bowls rare 900 series


Cody Schmitt recently bowled to perfection at Anchor Lanes.

“I never even thought it was going to happen, honestly,” the 2014 Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah graduate said. “I mean, I never even dream about throwing 900 at all. You know, it’s never really crossed my mind before.”

Schmitt has been bowling since he was 4 years old. His average is 228, he’s rolled an 800 series 18 times and his 300-game total stands at 22. The Resorters’ bowling coach even scored an 879 before.

And then came the 10th week of his Tuesday Night Men’s League on Nov. 16.

Schmitt became the 37th person to be officially recognized by the United States Bowling Congress to roll a perfect series. The last time someone from Wisconsin got the milestone was in 2006.

“I’ve been telling everybody that I kind of just like blacked out,” he said. “I hit the spots that I wanted to. I did everything that I wanted. … I just remember turning around and everybody was super excited. Everybody was yelling, screaming, cheering, and then I’ve got a bunch of hands in my face ready to be high-fived when I come back.”
