Weber Bowling Towards State Title

Posted: Updated:

  Landen Weber has been bowling since the age of ten, but he has already accomplished more than most bowlers ever will in their careers. At age 17, Landen has already bowled four three hundreds.

  "My first one was in 2012 and that was just practice. I had three this year, two during practice and one at a scholarship tournament." said Weber.

His dad Steve, caught his sanctioned tournament 300 earlier this year on camera.

"It's a good feeling as a coach, and as a friend, I used to bowl with him too when I was in high school, and when he bowls it he is just throwing the ball, he doesn't know the score half the time, so he's happy and feels accomplished afterwards." said Coach Mitch Eichhorn.

  Going into this weekend's state tournament, Weber is currently second in the state with a 228 average, searching for his first ever state championship.

  "It would mean a lot for me since it's my senior year, last time bowling, I think it will be really good." said Weber.

  And in a sport that's gained popularity in the state, Weber and bowlers all around want to see the sport sanctioned someday.

"I hope it does, because there are a lot of people in bowling and getting into bowling." said Weber.

  "That's been our number one mission is to get bowling sanction, so that it isn't a club sport." said Eichhorn.
