BOWLING (records).

The first state champion from Dubuque among women bowlers was Clare PRENDERGAST in 1939. The first Dubuque bowler to break the 800 level was Jerry Wiederholt who rolled twenty-eight strikes in thirty-six balls on January 8, 1975, to score an 801.

In March, 1972, the first Dubuque team in history won the Class A team title at the Iowa State Women's Bowling Association state tournament. The team of Elaine Galliart, Theresa Osthoff, Shirley KAMENTZ-WINKLER, Marge Nauman and Anna Mae Loewen made a combined total of 2745.

On February 12, 1981, Mike Erickson bowling at FISCHER LANES rolled games of 300-257-299 for a total of 856, a score then believed to be the highest ever achieved by an Iowa bowler.
