SANDUSKY — The Sandusky Men’s U.S. Bowling Congress has a new member to the association’s 300 club in lifelong Norwalk native Ryan Eastman.

Eastman, 40, bowled his initial 300 game on Oct. 28 in the Stay Connected League at Cedar Lanes in Sandusky. He finished his night with games of 199, 300 and 215 for a 714 series.

Eastman, a 1997 graduate of St. Paul High School, said he was relaxed for the most part while shooting his 300 game.

“You can say I got nervous in the 10th frame, but all I had on my mind was staying composed, and really, I didn’t do that,” Eastman said. “I had one ball go a little deep on me in the eighth frame, but it came back and I still had the strike. In the 10th frame, they were all solid, and I was so thankful I finally could get that 300 game.

“I had one other 300 earlier in my career, but this is the one that is sanctioned,” added Eastman, who’s previous high-game was 289.

His all-time high series is 760, and Eastman carries a 208 average while also bowling just once a week.
