Kieryn Knox is one of the nation’s premier high school bowlers

Some bowlers spend a lifetime in pursuit of a perfect game, which requires 12 consecutive strikes to arrive at a score of 300. West Orange High School (NJ) senior Kieryn Knox has rolled seven perfect games and capped his final year with the Mountaineers by claiming the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA) Boys Bowling Individual Finals crown.

Knox, who will continue his scholastic and athletic pursuits at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Atlanta, Georgia, garnered First Team All-State honors for his feats on the lanes and is among the nominees for All-USA TODAY High School Sports Awards Boys Bowler of the Year. He topped a field of 100 bowlers to emerge as the state champion.

Having previously rolled perfect games on the state tournament stage, Knox delivered a 300 pin performance in the Boys Team Finals in February, which helped propel him to more success in the individual competition phase – as he notched the fourth seed. Knox proceeded to defeat four opponents en route to the championship.
