Athlete of the Week: ESM's Ryan MacCombie

EAST SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - Our latest Athlete of the Week is an ESM senior bowler with his name in the record books. 

Ryan MacCombie had a historic series in a meet against Auburn on Jan. 8.

In a 3-0 win, MacCombie bowled a 278, 298 and 278 in three straight games for an individual series of 854--a new school and section three record. 

"Honestly, I didn't even know the score. I didn't know until the guy at the bowling alley announced it. I was like 'wow,'" said MacCombie. 

It's an accomplishment unlike any his head coach, Marty Piraino, had seen before. 

"We've had six 300s since I've coached and none of them have matched what he did the other day," said Coach Piraino. "On top of walking out of there with an 800, he walked out of there with a big 800. That is a huge score, 854."
