LAS VEGAS — Maybe, Staten Islander Melissa Kammerer should try her luck at the slot machines Thursday night in one of the casinos here in Sin City.
It can’t hurt considering what she accomplished Thursday afternoon in the USBC Women’s Championships’ Diamond Singles, as she rolled the highest series in the tourney’s 103-year history — a whopping 818 series on tough conditions at South Point Bowling Plaza. The righty’s series included a perfecto in her final game. Her first two scores were 280 and 238.
Kammerer worked as youth coordinator at Rab’s Country Lanes, coaching two teams to national championship finals in 2016 and 2018.
Currently, she is the head bowling coach for Long Island University women’s bowling squad. She is also a USBC-certified bronze-level bowling coach.
After an Advance All-Star career at Curtis High School, she competed at Wichita State while earning a bachelor’s degree in psychology.
The Diamond Singles tournament features bowlers with entering averages of 175 and above. The 2023 Women’s Championships started April 23 and will conclude July 2.
