Cape bowler's 855 series earns spot in hall of fame

Stan Lueders of Cape Girardeau earned a spot in the state's bowling hall of fame when he bowled a district-record 855 series at West Park Lanes in Cape Girardeau.

It was the best series in Lueders' 15 years of competitive bowling and consisted of games of 257, 299 and 299.

The 855 is a record for the Cape Girardeau district of the American Bowling Congress, which includes West Park Lanes and Jackson Lanes.

"Everything has to be working just right when that happens," Lueders, 42, said.

The 855 beat his previous best of 805 three years ago. He bowled an 800 last year.
