Hernando 14-year-old Anthony Caso breaks bowling record with 800 series

Anthony Caso, the same 14-year-old who rivaled the Hernando County record for the youngest bowler to toss a perfect game, finally reached another record a couple weeks ago.

Caso tossed an 800 series, becoming the youngest player in Hernando County ever to accomplish the feat. According to Hernando Youth Bowling Director Sue Winnegar, there have been only two 800 series thrown by youths in the area prior to this. One was by Chris Polizzi, 18, last season, and the other was by Mike Davidson, 16, in July 2003. Both of those scores were 802s.

The 813 series thrown by Caso at Mariner Lanes was accomplished Feb. 2. His game scores were 299, 235 and 279.
