Sophomore Cody Spangler's perfect 300 game was the highlight of a dominating performance by Washburn Rural's boys and girls bowling teams in Monday's Topeka High triangular at Gage Bowl.

Spanger recorded his 300 game in his second game Monday on the way to a 679 three-game series and a second-place individual finish behind teammate Loran Glinka, who took individual honors with a 729 series as the Junior Blues won the team title by a 2,752-2,470 margin over Shawnee Heights.
