(ABC 6 NEWS) -- It's been quite the year for the Austin High School bowling team, as it seems to be almost every year.

The Packers had three bowlers named to the All-Conference team recently, including one who capped off the honor with something pretty impressive.

Collin Bailey, a junior on the Varsity team, bowled a perfect game on Sunday during the Minnesota Junior Bowlers Tournament.

That means he threw ten strikes for as score of 300. It's Collin's second perfect game, but first in a tournament. Even he was surprised it came during a competition.

"I've only seen it a couple times and that was my first time in a tournament," said Bailey. "Around the seventh or eighth frame the nerves, you could really start to feel them kick in. You get really shaking on every shot, but they just all fell down."
