HOPKINSVILLE, Kent. - The Hammer brand is once again in the winner's circle, this time breaking a national record! On March 27, the 5-woman Hammer Women's League at Riviera Lanes in Milwaukee bowled a 1,331 game, breaking the record for the highest 5-woman team game in national recorded history previously set by Contour Power Grips I (1,328) in 1998. All five bowlers used Hammer balls.
"We all began using Hammer as junior bowlers back when the urethane Blue Hammer was the ball of choice and we are happy to represent a company that has produced some of the most popular balls in the industry," said Laura Mattila. "Having the entire team throwing Hammer equipment has helped all of us tremendously in reading the lanes and being able to make adjustments off our teammates' shots."
Mattila bowled a 279 with Black Widow Bite. Rochelle Macke and Tracie Strunsee, also both using the Bite, threw 258 and 228 respectively. Shannon Graff bowled 277 with Cherry Vibe and Roxanne George posted a 289 with Hammer No Mercy.
