Kegler's Korner: Good things come in threes

If you happened to see the area bowling results that were printed in Sunday's paper, you may have noticed Middleburg's Aaron Roush recently rolled his third perfect game this season.

The soon-to-be 38-year-old got No. 3 on Jan. 31. Roush's first two perfect games were thrown on Oct. 18 and Dec. 6.

Rolling three perfect games in one season is a major accomplishment, but Roush has done it twice as a matter of fact.

"It's been a pretty good year. I had three perfect games last year -- two at Best Bowl and one at Strike Zone," said Roush. "I was pretty surprised and happy (with a third 300 this year).

With his latest 300, Roush broke a tie he held with his older brother, Wayne, in career perfect games by rolling his 11th.

Even though the Roush brothers may be competitive on the lanes, Aaron stops short of calling it a sibling rivalry.

"My older brother and I were tied at 10 perfect games and I passed him. It's not really a sibling rivalry; we're happy for each other," said Aaron. "Wayne is always the first one in line to congratulate me when I come off the lanes (after rolling a 300)."

Without the benefit of a high school team to compete for during his early years, Aaron Roush honed the skills he inherited from his father in Best Bowl's YABA program on Saturdays before he joined a men's league during his junior year of high school.

"We get (our bowling expertise) from our dad, Larry. He passed away when I was young, but he got us started in bowling," said Aaron.

What makes Aaron Roush's feat even more impressive is that prior to the 2011-12 league season, he had not bowled for quite some time due to his job.
