Connor Allen’s six-game series of 1,241 was good for eighth individually, and it included five 200 games and a 257 high game. Josh Rex was close behind, rolling four 200 games and a 1,234 series. Andrew Hamburg (1,184 series) was the only other Duke to bowl all six games, while Brandon Bonnette’s opening 268 game topped the team.
