In the next handful of weeks during the summer, we will be taking a look back at this past season and recognize those that have achieved high success by us at Rusch's Bowl. We will also be recognizing those that have broken as well as set new records by us this season. There will be no particular order we will do these. Our next annual spotlight will be on Max Schmidt.
Going into the season, Max was going into his fourth and final year at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, but due to the current situation, he was able to do his schooling from home and come back to Rusch’s Bowl. He is most known for his time in the youth scene in the area, most notably by having one out of the three recorded youth 300 games back in the 2013-2014 season at Rusch’s (Matthew Cherney 2012-2013 and Tyler Carpenter 2020-2021). As well as firing one out of the three and the first-ever sanctioned youth 800 series at Rusch’s with an 803 back in the 2016-2017 season (Cale Rusch 2019-2020 and Greydon Brown 2019-2020).
Throughout this season, Max bowled full-time in the Wednesday Night Men’s league and part-time in the Monday Night Men’s league and the Wednesday Night Mixed Spring league at Rusch’s Bowl where he became one of the most successful bowlers at Rusch’s and reclaimed his success. It didn’t take Max long to get the rust out, on November 4th in the Wednesday Night Men’s league he would go on to fire games of 256, 278, and a 267 for an 801 series. This would also mark his first-ever adult sanctioned 800 series. Roughly two months later on January 13th in the same league, Max would finally hit perfection after firing a 300 game, and again this would also mark his first-ever adult sanctioned 300 game. In the second to last week of the Wednesday Night Men’s league on March 31st, Max would go on to fire another 300 game as well as having a 794 series just missing his second 800 series. He ended the league with a solid 230.83 average.
We would like to congratulate Max Schmidt once again on his outstanding performance this season, his performance will be looked at as one of the best at Rusch’s Bowl and in the area for this past season. It was great to see him back home and can’t wait to see him next season! Congratulations Max!
