    you could get a triple 20 = 60
    double 19 = 38
    and a single 3 = 3

    60 + 38 + 3 = 101

    If by "three separate trebles" means you must use only the triple score ring, then it's not possible, because 101 is not divisible by 3.

    Late is probably not much better than never, but here it is:

    Can't be done. Three trebles would give a score divisible by three,
    but 101 is not divisible by three and so cannot be made with three
    trebles.
