A 10-year-old Maplewood boy this weekend became the youngest in New Jersey to bowl a perfect game.
This past Saturday evening, Kai Strothers’ numerous hours of practice and sacrifice paid off when he bowled 300 at the Jersey Lanes in Linden. Not only making this an accomplishment for him on a personal level but making him the youngest in New Jersey to bowl a perfect game, and the second youngest in the nation.
According to Strothers’ mother, his love for bowling started when he first stepped into a bowling alley, when he was only 18 months old. At age four, he joined a local bowling league. Two years later, this pass time quickly became a passion.
However, bowling is no strange sport for the family, since several family members are avid bowlers.
Kai Hopes to become a professional bowler when he grows up.
