WILMINGTON — Elijah Martini bowled the first perfect game in Wilmington High School boys bowling history Wednesday at Royal Z Lanes.

Martini had a 235 game to start his day then came back with 12 strikes in the second game for the perfect 300 game.

“The people on the (other) lanes all stopped and watched,” Martini said of his 10th frame heroics.”I had to keep that tunnel vision.”

The 300 is a stand alone single game record for Wilmington, eclipsing Todd Mathews’ 299 game in 2007.

“My legs were burning they were shaking so bad,” he said. “They were good shots. Right when it (last ball) came off my hand I knew i had a chance. It was exciting.”

The 535 series ties Max Yoder’s two-game performance from the 2010 season.

Martini’s performance was just one of several for the Hurricane on the day. Wilmington defeated Bethel-Tate 2,694 to 1,862.

The 2,694 total and 1,058 single game are season highs for Wilmington.

The Lady Hurricane also were winners 1,951 to 1,366. Ariel Comberger had a strong day with a 415 series (224 and 191).

For the boys, Martini was the leader but Grant Pickard (248 and 235) and Jordan Tackett (208 and 210) also had big days.

Wilmington also had a solid baker game series of three games, 592. They had games of 211 and 225.
