One of the fastest rising stars in L.A. bowling is maintaining his ascent.
Greg Kolski of West Hills set another in a series of personal bests with a sizzling 670 series Thursday night at AMF Woodlake Lanes in Woodland Hills.
The 29-year-old Kolski surpassed his previous best of 660 that he set less than two months earlier.
What made Kolski’s effort so noteworthy was that this was the first time he had blasted three 200 games in a series.
He entered the 10th frame of his first game needing to strike out to hit 200 and that’s exactly what he did.
“That’s when I got the momentum,” Kolski said.
Kolski then smoked games of 234 and 236, finishing his series with a clean third game (no opens). He had three opens in the first game and one in the second.
“After the first 200, it got a little bit easier,” he said.
Kolski has set goals of rolling a 300 and a 700 series. His goals keep getting loftier as his sharp-breaking hook carries him to new heights.
No longer is he known simply as the man who bowled 100 games in one day – that happening in December. He has said that the work he put in for that one marathon outing is paying dividends and it shows in his improvement.
He was averaging 163 in December and now his average has soared by 25 pins.
Named the most improved bowler in his Thursday night league for the summer session, Kolski is now confident about rolling a 700.
“I’m coming pretty close so it’s within reach,” he said. “I need an average of 234 per game to do it. The way things are going, I might be able to do it within the next three or four months.”
