Hancock High senior bowls a perfect 300 game

WLOX Play of the Day: Hancock High's Nick Cumberland

JACKSON, Miss. (WLOX) - Nicholas Cumberland will always remember his last high school bowling tournament.

The Hancock High senior stood on lane one Thursday afternoon in Jackson one strike away from a perfect game. Cumberland’s ball hit its mark. As it curled into the pocket, teammates knew, and so did the senior - Strike number 12 was perfect.

So was his score. Cumberland threw his first ever 300 game!
