“I kept my momentum up there and knew I would get to 300,” Sutherland said, adding he didn’t change anything and kept using the same technique.
Coach Ken Clayton explained he knew Sutherland was getting close to a perfect game because he bowled a 248 against Southfield Arts & Technology the day before.
