John finished with a 278 game for a 878 series. The 878 is a new city record and beat the previous 12 old record of 869 that was held by Al Zeitz Jr. also shot at Castle Lanes John a 39 year old left – hander was using a Brunswick Nexus Double X and had all strikes until the first frame of the third game where he left a 7 – pin and then continued his striking frenzy until the 2nd ball in the tenth frame. Schroeder has twenty three career 300’s & twenty one career 800’s, (four 300’s & four 800’s have been thrown this season.) John was awarded $300 in cash from Castle for his two 300’s & 878 and will be invited to be Castle’s paid guest at this year’s Racine Bowling Hall of Fame banquet held in May.
