Chris Neidert

Though Chris Neidert retired from competitive bowling at the relatively young age of 29 in 1982, he had already had a long list of accomplishments. And Neidert bowed out while he was still at the top of his game, as evidenced by his selection as the Beacon Journal's male bowler of the year for the 1980-81 and '81-'82 seasons. Neidert's success reached all the way to the international level as he won gold and a silver medal in the Federation International des Quilliers North American Zone Tournament in 1981. Neidert's other career highlights include five 300 games and two 800 series, the Ohio State men's doubles titles, a seventh-place finish in the American Bowling Congress national tournament, four Ohio Tournament Bowlers Association victories and qualifying for the U.S. Open four time.
