KCChronicle.com/preps Athlete of the Week: St. Charles North junior bowler Isaac Marshall

Why he was selected: Marshall bowled a perfect 300 game at Rockford's Don Carter Lanes Saturday

St. Charles North junior boys bowler Isaac Marshall rolled the first perfect 300 game of his kegling career Saturday in a tournament at Rockford's Don Carter Lanes. Asked where it ranked on his list of lifetime achievements, The St. Charles Bank & Trust-Kane County Chronicle Athlete of the Week, 17, responded, "Pretty high." Marshall received a medal from the alley, but said the will not be recognized by the United States Bowling Congress because the game happened in a high school tournament. All things considered, the bureaucracy hasn't bummed Marshall, who recently spoke with Chronicle sports reporter Kevin Druley. The following is an edited transcript:

Talk about the aftermath of the feat. You had to bowl another game after the 300.
It didn't really sink in right away. Probably around Sunday afternoon, it kind of struck me that I did that and the [magnitude] of the accomplishment.

Was it in any way like a baseball perfect game, with your teammates staying away from you in the seats behind the scorer's machine?
Everyone was still around me, but they kept quiet and they weren't really saying anything about it. Kind of keeping it on the lower key. … The team bowled great, too. We're progressing with some youth, but we're feeling good.

What's your toughest class this semester?
Probably Algebra II. Math doesn't come easy, so it's kind of hard.

If there weren't automatic scoring, would math be easier?
Maybe.

What's your favorite sports movie?
Probably "Kingpin." … The whole bowling thing.
