It's a moment Kobi Wiewiorski will remember for the rest of his life.

"Someone could've dropped a pin and you would've heard it," he said.

Last week Wiewiorski began a bowling match just like he always does, but it was perfect bowl after bowl that made this match a little more special than the others.

It wasn't until that final throw of the ball that it all sunk in.

"As soon as I got that 12th strike, it was honestly amazing the energy that flooded in from everybody," Wiewiorski said

A perfect score of 300 next to his name.

It's something many kids his age never get to accomplish and something Kenmore East coach Todd Marquardt will always remember.

"I've been around high school sports for 32 years," he said. "It's very memorable and astonishing to see a kid that young bowl perfection."

As just a sophomore, Wiewiorski bowled the program's third ever 12-strike game and is hoping to bowl a few more in the years to come.

It's that first one though that he'll always cherish.

Those three numbers are plastered on his personal bowling ball as a reminder that hard work pays off.

"I've talked to people that have bowled it when they were 14, I've talked to people who have bowled it when they were 12 or 10," said Wiewiorski. "It just kind of shows that bowling isn't something you have to be very physical and demanding with, you just have to put in the time and effort and it shows."
