'Everything clicks' as Jones rolls 4th 300

Print Article

BELOIT - Jeremiah Jones tasted perfection rolling a brand new bowling ball at Diamond Lanes, but when things started to go sour after that, he had a dilemma on his hands.

"It's a brand new ball I'd just had drilled a couple of hours earlier," he said. "And I bowl a 300 with it the first time out."

It was the fourth 300 game of the 37-year-old Janesville native's career. Two of those came last year at Diamond Lanes and this one came in the Friday Night Kings Open on Feb, 23.

You'd think the 300 would come later in his series, when he became accustomed to the new ball - a Hyper Cell Infused from Roto-Grip.

"Sure, you'd think that," Jones said with a chuckle. "Everything just clicked in that first game and everything I threw was in the pocket. But then the oil pattern changed and after that first game, I was bowling terrible. I still needed to figure out the ball before state so I had to stick with it."

Jones didn't blame the ball for his settling for a 694 series.

"I had no games on it and I'm still learning how to throw it," Jones said. "It hooks a lot more than the others I'm used to."

Jones bowls regularly in two centers: Diamond, where he averages 216 and El-Ra in Janesville, where he averages 221.
