Today we remember 1991 Hall of Fame inductee, Mike Kawa, who demonstrated great sportsmanship on the lanes, always congratulating teammates and opponents alike for a good shot or a great score. In the 1950’s, Mike won a high annual series award and a Bowler of the Year Title. In 1992, at the age of 71, Kawa became the oldest bowler in the county association to roll a 300 game. After losing that title in the mid 1990’s, Mike recaptured it in 2004, with another 300 at the age of 84. The secret to Mike’s success was most likely his smooth straightforward delivery, which enabled him to continue to bowl well, long after many of his contemporaries had slumped to much lower averages.
Hope to see you on the lanes.
