Brian Halstrom Shoots 889 to Break the Florida State Record
No one at the AMF Semoran Bowling Lanes believed March 10 was going to be different than any other night. UCF marketing major Brian Halstrom certainly didn't think it would be the night he made history.
Amid the typical distractions of a bowling alley, Halstrom, 24, sent strike after strike down lanes three and four, for a series that ended in a score of 889 - a new Florida state record.
Halstrom, who started bowling with his family at the age of 6, said all the right things came together on that Saturday before spring break.
