Crystal Singh
Age: 17

There is a reason why this Coral Springs, Fla., standout set herself apart on the 2016-17 Dexter/United States Bowling Congress High School All-American Team as the only high school junior among the team’s 10 selections: Singh’s two-game series of 536 set a Broward County record, and her 217.5 average did the same. Singh’s talent positioned her to lead the Coral Springs Charter School’s bowling team to a runner-up finish at last year’s U.S. High School National Championships, where she also finished fourth in Singles. Also last year, she became the first bowler in Broward County, boy or girl, to bowl 300 in high school competition. Off the lanes, Singh is a National Honors Society member and a volunteer math tutor.


Jonathan Lovett
Age: 18

This 2016-17 Dexter/USBC High School All-American has made quite the name for himself in and around his native Columbia, S.C., where he is the four-time boys’ individual state champion and has been selected Bowler of the Year for the past four years as well. In 2013, at age 14, he bowled the highest series in the history of the USBC Youth Championships with an 836 comprising games of 267, 275 and 289. He also has excelled in the classroom, making the honor roll in his senior year at Cardinal Newman High School. Now a freshman at the University of Pikeville, Lovett’s wide-ranging interests include music, soccer, and volunteer work for the U.S. Army Training Museum. He is majoring in biology and computer science.

Kyle Bilawski
Age: 18

This Woodbridge High School star out of Fords, N.J., enjoyed a highlight-filled high school career during which he shot his first 300 in high school competition in January 2016 a day after having led the Barrons to a sweep of South Brunswick on the strength of a 737 series that began with a 290. He followed up that stellar start with games of 247 and 200. In his junior year, he finished runner-up at the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association Singles Championships. He also has demonstrated an interest in coaching in bowling as well as in baseball, having coached in both sports at the middle-school level. He began bowling with the New Jersey Institute of Technology this semester.
